The Colorado College Landscape and the Built Environment fall lecture series ends on a regional note with a talk by Colorado architect Harry Teague. Based in Aspen, Teague is best known for his work on the Anderson Ranch arts compound in Snowmass, Colo. The architecture of the former ranch compound, which is now an arts teaching center and gallery, is characterized by Teague's trademark style, which might best be described as rustic modern, or "revitalization and reinterpretation of western vernacular," as he puts it. Using traditional building forms, or existing structures, Teague frequently works with and around the landscape and existing structures to transform them into complementary relationships that do more than simply blend in. Working in Colorado for over 30 years, Teague has a large portfolio of spectacularly innovative private homes, concert halls and public buildings.
