    Default A modern home in Orange County


    ( Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times ) Architect Ruth Hasell's emphatically modern home in Orange County isn't just a rejection of the phony French castles and wannabe Tuscan villas proliferating in nearby housing developments. It's also her vision of what more homes in Southern California could -- and should -- look like. "I wanted the house to be a vivid reflection of built work that was Californian and a direct response to our time and to this place," she says, "not a dim reflection of a misremembered style from another lifetime and another continent."

    In the second pic, the house looks like farm sheds.

    It looks like even the dog hates it.

    I like it but those giant stacks of books are going to fall over and kill the dog.
