Hays Town changed the face of the Louisiana house. In a career that includes designing more than five hundred homes, he has led architects, builders, and homeowners to embrace the finest elements of Louisiana's rich architectural past. Almost every home built in Louisiana during the last twenty years is in some way inspired by Town's work. The Town original, though, still stands out as dynamic yet timeless, elegant yet earthy, refined yet muscular, and above all dramatic to the eye yet soothing to the spirit. --The Louisiana Houses of A. Hays Town illuminates the momentous effect Town has had on the look of Louisiana. Crafted from the perspective of two people, Vetter and Gould, who are not architects but admirers of one man's exceptional talent, this delightful book demonstrates that each Town house is a work of art that fits both person and terrain. At the door of each home, proud owners hang a bronze plaque that says it all: "A. Hays Town, Architect."---"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
