Excerpted from the Checker Board Foundation’s film series of famous architects and their lifes work, this footage displays his most recent residential masterpiece, Woodstock Farm. Located in Woodstock, Vermont, the master architect who as dubbed by Steven Holl as the “poet of place” shows his sensitivity to his New England routes and his unique blend of purity, warmth and vision with respect to context of place. I am interviewed about my experience of working with Rick and our successful tribute to the New England family farm. Recently selected for the 2010 Architectural Record – Record Houses of the Year Award, it is the fourth such award for Rick Joy, and my first. Special mention must be made to Erik Tobiason and Tucker Johnson of Colby and Tobiason Builders whose skill and craftsmanship is clear evidence of their elite status among the world of luxury home builders. Jason Eaton and Mark Johnson of Chippers Inc. Land Enhancement Specialists are enlisted to commence a 10 year program for forestry, wildlife, recreation and agriculture as we have placed the land into protection under the Vermont State Current Use program. The home and barn and future buildings planned for the property will be completely “off the grid” while embracing geothermal, solar, hydro-electric and wind technologies.
