The New York Times has an obituary for Andrew Geller, an architect "who helped bring modernism to the masses with prefabricated cottages." Mr. Geller created a series of inexpensive beach houses that were sold at Macy's?some 200 of which were built in Culloden Point in Montauk. While many hundreds of these Leisurama houses were sold and erected during the early 60s, he was best known for his one-off designs, "whose distinctive shapes earned them nicknames like the Box Kite, the Milk Carton and the Grasshopper." Sadly, only a few of his designs remain on the East End today. [Previously, NY Times]
