Inhaltsangabe: Paffard Keatinge-Clay is a unique figure in American architectural history. He was born near Stonehenge in England, studied in London and Zurich, worked in both Le Corbusier's studio in Paris and at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, and then settled in the American West, where he worked for Skidmore, Owings & Merrill before starting out on his own. While he remained in the U.S. until the mid-1970s, and practiced there, his work remains largely unknown even in San Francisco, where he spent more than 20 years. His brand of orthodox Modernism was decidedly out of step with the prevailing 'Bay Area Modernism' exemplified by figures like Moore, Wurster, McCue and Turnbull, who dominated both the academic and professional arenas of the period. Keatinge-Clay had to struggle to execute his own expressive, nonconformist architectural language, and when he did, he garnered minimal recognition. This book brings to light the importance of his work as representative of its time period and clarifies the influences his mentors--including Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra and Charles and Ray Eames--had upon it. This is the first retrospective study of Keatinge-ClayÃs architectural projects and, as such, is an important record of an academically and socially significant body of work.
