Marfa Modern


Due in no small part to Donald Judd, the city of Marfa, Texas, has evolved from a railroad water stop to a destination for minimalist art and design. Written by Helen Thompson and featuring photographs by Casey Dunn, Marfa Modern: Artistic Interiors of the West Texas High Desert showcases 21 homes that embody the character of the creative enclave and uniquely respond to the austere desert landscape. From a conceptual artist's reclamation of a former Texaco service station to a chef's handmade house with an outdoor tub, these residences encapsulate the resourcefulness and ingenuity of Marfa dwellers.
