Architect Horace Gifford's Fire Island homes

Architect Horace Gifford, whose works are the subject of Christopher Rawlins' "Fire Island Modernist: Horace Gifford and the Architecture of Seduction" (Metropolis Books/Gordon de Vries Studio), completed 78 strikingly original homes in his career. Sixty-three of those residences were built on Fire Island, a location that gave free reign to his nature-oriented imagination.
