This post is inspired in part by kmwthay's recent post on famous folk from her 'hood and Boxer's about her beloved beach house, a structure rich with history and emotion for her and her family. Boxer's post in particular got me thinking again about my own relationship with a house from my past, and of the relationships we all have with both space and place.
In my opinion, Bart Prince is one of the few residential architects living today who understand the relationship between the two – not just how a building relates to its site, but also to the people who inhabit it. Prince is from my 'hood. I have been in and/or seen quite a few of his homes. They are amazing. If I had a bazillion dollars, I'd have him design one por Moi in a heartbeat.
