An abundance of glass, a lack of ornamentation and building sites with sweeping views were trademarks of Walter Gropius and other members of The Architects Collaborative in designing three West Virginia State Park lodges. Show here is a TAC-designed lobby area in Pipestem Resort State Park.
The lodge at Hawks Nest State Park features an open, airy floor plan, functional furniture, and spare lines.
The lodge at Hawks Nest State Park, overlooking the north end of the New River Gorge, was among three state park lodges designed by Walter Gropius, father of the Bauhaus style, and other members of The Architects Collaborative.
Twin Falls State Park's original lodge building, shown here, was designed along the same spare, rectangular lines as the lodges at Pipestem and Hawks Nest state parks.
