Recent generations of farmers have reinvented the family farm and its traditions, embracing organic practices and sustainability and, along with them, a bold new use of modern architecture. The New Farm profiles sixteen contemporary farms around the globe, accompanied by plans and colorful images that highlight the connections among family, food, design, terrain, and heritage.

Praise For…

"In The New Farm: Contemporary Rural Architecture, author Daniel P. Gregory explores how firms have taken a bolder approach to agricultural design with striking exteriors, grand interiors, and inventive materials. Gregory showcases 16 farms around the world, from a cathedral-like dairy farm in New York state to sleek stables in New South Wales, Australia. Each of the family businesses offers a new take on farming traditions with an eye to sustainability and beautiful design."

This collection, extending from California to Kentucky and as far as Tasmania, of contemporary farm buildings shows how barns, mills, and farmhouses are part of a strong vernacular and modernist tradition. The 16 examples selected by Daniel Gregory, a former editor at Sunset magazine, often pay homage to such Bay Area modernists in the postwar period as William Wurster.
