"Lake Flato has produced an extraordinary range of buildings and landscapes that respond to local climates and ecologies, that use local materials and products, and that refer to local traditions and forms. Through their sensitive re-interpretations of the places in which they build, Lake Flato has designed structures that seem inseparable from their prairie, desert, bayou, and mountain sites. At the same time, the work has universal appeal as an example of truly sustainable architecture, low in its resource use and well-loved by its users."--Jacket.
