OF LAND AND ARCHITECTURE — LAKE | FLATO S an Antonio- and Austin- based Lake | Flato embodies a vision of architecture that remains as relevant today as when the firm opened its doors four decades ago. Considered one of the most innovative architecture firms working today, the founders' mantra is that "first and foremost, architecture should be rooted in its particular place, responding in a meaningful way to the natural or built environment." Using indigenous materials and partnering with the best local craftsmen, the firm creates buildings that are environmentally responsible and authentic, artful, and crafted. Lake | Flato Houses — Respecting the Land (Rizzoli 2021) includes a dramatic cantilevered lakeside retreat in Marble Falls; the shed- roofed Aegean Pool House in Mineola; the horizon-hugging Prow in Fort Davis, West Texas; and Marfa Ranch, built of rammed earth.
