H is for Harris
Using mainly wood, Harwell Hamilton Harris exhibited a sensitivity to site and materials that carried on the American Arts & Crafts movement. Adapting from the vernacular of California and from the modular practices of the modernists he created a style of his own. Harris developed a regional oeuvre at balance with naturalism yet embracing a modernist ideology -creating works that exhibited a sensitivity to site and materials and at peace with the environment.
