Ideas on Style

Mark Parry concurs with Frank Lloyd Wright “I do not design in style, I design with style”

The form of the building should be a reflection of its function, yet responsive to its environment. Satisfy the needs, expectations, and purposes behind the reason it is to be built, yet allow sun, wind, terrain and time to affect the form and configuration of a structure.

How that structure is expressed stylistically can be multi-faceted. A form can be detailed, decorated, and textured with many different styles. The driving concern for Mark is that the style is patron-reflective and done with grace, elegance, and sophistication. A unique, often eclectic style can emerge that is current, yet timeless, and above all reflective of the tastes and aspirations of the patron who commissioned the work.
