130 MONDAY, MARCH 28, 5 – 7 PM: Cocktails, talk, and books signing with Brooke and Steve Giannetti GIANNETTI HOMES — A PASSION FOR PATINA U tilizing a palette of wood, metal, stone, and chalky patina, Steve Giannetti's architectural design marries modern with classical, as exemplified in the couple's lush Patina Farm in Ojai, California. He and his interior-designer wife, Brooke Giannetti, own the architecture, interior, and landscape design firm Giannetti Homes. Their latest book, Patina Homes (Gibbs-Smith 2021), celebrates 12 projects, from a historic East Coast farmhouse to a modern desert glass box. Followers on their social media come for the good design but stay for Brooke's poetic musings on farm creatures and farm life. One wonders how they could leave such a magical place, but the Giannettis are heading to a land of four seasons, currently at work on their new personal project, Patina Meadow in Tennessee. VIP tickets holders and by invitation. Anne Lee Phillips FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 5 – 7 PM: Cocktails, talk, and book signing with Ted Flato 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. The 16 homes detailed in Lake | Flato Houses — Respecting the Land (Rizzoli 2021) include 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. VIP tickets holders and by invitation. Catherine D.
