Minnesota Architecture

I wish I knew more about architecture, but I do know what appeals to me. Duluth architect David Salmela mixes modernism with Upper-Midwest vernacular, and the results are some of the most appealingly clean and crisply beautiful buildings around. His stand-alone structures are great (see the Emerson Sauna) but like a downhome van der Rohe, he's also doing a whole subdivision in a Twin Cities suburb. The forthcoming book on his work sounds great.
