Since the late 1800s, a surprising number of the most celebrated architects, along with their artisan-builder counterparts, have transformed the popular notion of the simple pioneer log cabin into a supremely crafted work of high-art architecture. Examples can be found everywhere from the skyscraping mountain ranges of New York's Adirondacks to the sparkling fjords of Norway, and well beyond. Despite the pedigree that comes with having been designed by a famous architect, not to mention their typically spectacular locations and profound sense of warmth and overall comfort, these houses have yet to receive the popular recognition, critical and otherwise, that they deserve. Many of the world's most renowned Modern-era architects have designed log houses, including Eliel Saarinen, Adolf Loos, Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, R. M. Schindler, Richard Neutra, and John Lautner, among others. These examples, most never before published, are gathered here along with log homes by other world-famous figures of the design world, past and present, such as Gustav Stickley, Lars Wahlman, Robert A. M. Stern, and Peter Zumthor.
