A study of structures and weather on Nantucket Island.
Nantucket has one of the most expensive and unique housing markets in the country. All houses are regulated and required to have pitched roofs—nothing but a deck or widow’s walk may be flat—and must be covered in the same wooden shingles which age to a solemn grey. Each building on Nantucket is similar yet original. This architectural uniformity contrasts the unpredictable East Coast weather, providing an opportunity to study light and angles in a different way each day.
