For Bridgehampton-based architect Preston Phillips, the master’s words couldn’t be more appropriate.

When it Comes to Architecture, Gary Lawrance Thinks Small

As a young boy, Gary Lawrance made elaborate houses from playing cards and “Little Golden” books, castles from sand, and towering pyramids from Dixie cups.
