About this book


Since Samuel Mockbee's death in 2001, the Rural Studio has continued to thrive, a tribute to its founder's vision. Under Mockbee's successor, Andrew Freear, the studio has seeded southwest Alabama with an additional seventeen architectural landmarks, and all are shown here. Andrea Oppenheimer Dean is author of several books on architecture including Rural Studio and editor for journals including Architecture, Architectural Record, Preservation, and Landscape.
