Summary

<div><p><em>Midcentury spaces made new: A-Frame homes from rustic to ultra-modern, mountain retreats to seaside getaways.</em></p><p>The A-Frame home surged in popularity in the 1950s, and has captured the public’s imagination with its playfully modern, steep-sloping roofline ever since. <em>The Modern A-Frame</em> celebrates seventeen diverse accounts of these minimalists cabins reinvented for the twenty-first century. Nostalgic escapes, heritage homes, full-time simplicity, and artists at work categorize the A-frames whose engaging stories are shared. Whether fabricated from a 1960s kit or as a new build via retro inspiration, the variety of styles and homeowners in this photo-driven collection beautifully captures the romance of a classic structure, which beckons to travelers and homebuyers today, just as it did sixty years ago. </p><p>Perfect for the architectural enthusiast, midcentury-minded designer, or armchair traveller.</p><p><strong>Ben Rahn</strong> has been photographing architecture and interiors for more than twenty years. He founded A-Frame Studio in 2003 out of a desire to combine his love of design with his keen photographic eye. His work has been recognized internationally and has appeared in publications such as <em>Dwell, Wallpaper, Conde Naste Traveller,</em> and more. He lives in Toronto, Canada.</p></div>
