"To build a home is perhaps the most primal form of architecture. A place of complete particularity to human existence, houses both influence and incubate individuality. A house situates the fragile territory between container and creator, the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace." (Gaston Bachelard). "This selection of 20 houses by Patrick Tighe shows a diverse spectrum of work, all linked by a shared occupation of the west coast. His work highlights the dramatic variance that can exist within residential architecture, how each project has been approached organically and intuitively but held by the familiar siting among the smoke and goldenness of the late afternoon of time." (Kerouac, Out/West).
