The Rise of Gabled Modern Architecture: From Origins to Future Directions (Print Course)

The Gabled Modern is an architectural design trend that was only labeled as such in recent years. Because of this, its origins and rise to prominence are largely unknown and misunderstood. Readers will explore the origins of Gabled Moderns in historical architectural vernacular and learn which style and design characteristics are shared, and how the modern trends deviate from traditional uses.

Next, a discussion of the primary trends influencing Gabled Moderns will help explain what is causing this design trend to propel into mainstream architecture, and the various ways the Gabled Modern style can be applied.

Finally, a brief discussion of how different roofing trends can be used with Gabled Modern homes will help readers to pinpoint innovations in architectural design.
