Interview: Don Metz, “Confessions of a Country Architect.”

Print More

Don Metz is an architect with a view. After graduating from the Yale School of Architecture, when many students gravitate to lucrative commercial firms, Metz opted instead to open a small country practice in the Upper Valley.

He has built his reputation as a maverick architect and a pioneer in sustainable housing, and is a volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.

Metz recounts his experiences in his new memoir, "Confessions of a Country Architect." The book contrasts the sometimes loopy requests of wealthy clients with the earthy wisdom of native contractors, and provides insight into a career devoted to building dreams.

Don Metz lives in Lyme, New Hampshire. He spoke with VPR’s Neal Charnoff.
Metz will be appearing at The Norwich Bookstore, tomorrow evening at 7.
