Completed in 1992 in Lexington, Kentucky, the Miller House stands as José Oubrerie’s most notable
accomplishment in the United States. Among the last members of Le Corbusier’s Paris atelier,
Oubrerie is best known for his collaborations with Le Corbusier on projects including the Heidi Weber
Pavilion in Zurich, the Venice Hospital and the church of St. Pierre de Firminy-Vert. The Miller House,
with its deft synthesis of modernist elements with American vernacular construction and an array of
historical sources, marks a highly original swerve from modernist orthodoxy and a landmark achievement
in American architecture. Et in Suburbia Ego: José Oubrerie’s Miller House gathers new commentary
and interpretation by leading voices in contemporary architecture including Jeffrey Kipnis,
Kenneth Frampton and Douglas Graf alongside newly commissioned photographs and previously unpublished
drawings and models from Oubrerie’s archive, documenting the house at a level of detail
rarely seen in architectural monographs.
