A. Hays Town and the Architectural Image of Louisiana

Featuring color photography by Philip Gould and architectural drawings, A. Hays Town and the Architectural Image of Louisiana by Carol McMichael Reese traces the evolution of Town's career, including his work on the Historic American Buildings Survey, his award-winning Modernist designs, and his later houses that came to define Louisiana's residential architecture. This work accompanies an exhibition that originated at the Hilliard Art Museum - University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2018 and has since traveled to additional venues.
