Jim Alinder photographed houses designed by West Coast modernist architect Hank Schubart for Houses Made of Wood and Light, a new book from University of Texas Press that looks at Schubart’s life and work—in particular his contribution to British Columbia’s Salt Spring Island, where he built more than 230 residential, commercial, educational and religious projects. Schubart’s work was defined by his ability to integrate a structure’s design into the natural landscape, and by his use of wood and glass.
