These shapes are so minimal and so perfect, they might almost be the line drawing you’d find if you looked up “barn” in an old encyclopedia. At the same time their strange blankness almost qualifies them as sculpture. The buildings are by Turnbull Griffin Hesloop in an American vernacular agricultural style, found in a great post on 2 or 3 things. (Click the “sea ranch” link.) It’s very distinctly not a Pacific Northwest vernacular.
