About the Book

THE LAST HOUSE tells the story of a Florida couple who build four beautiful homes over the course of their married life together, The first is along Cross Creek near Marjorie Rawlings’ home. The second is in the Sarasota area on Siesta Key. The third, an art deco masterpiece on Biscayne Bay, and then their last house — a beachside retirement home in Summer Haven near St. Augustine. Those who have worked with architects in the past to create their own homes will surely identify with this adventure. But anyone who loves architecture will enjoy the ride as well. Ron Haase returns to a theme he developed and taught at the University of Florida — one of respect for architectural context and vernacular roots. In this new book he brings along the ghosts of Marjorie Rawlings, Paul Rudolph, Leonard Horowitz and Albert Manucy to help make the argument. The many architectural designs and pen & ink drawings in this book are by the author with the exception of House Two on Siesta Key which was designed by David Haase.
