JACKSON LAKE LODGE, GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK, WYOMING, designed by Gilbert Stanley Underwood for John D. Rockefeller, Jr., 1955
All photographs by Christine Madrid, October 1999
Contrast this view of the "mountain range" facade versus the entry facade below. Underwood made reference to the natural environment of the park by treating the concrete to resemble wood paneling and landscaping the site to disguise the building from a nearby park road.
View of the porte-cochere (above). In this area the "wood" treatment of the concrete is most evident. The entrance doors to the lodge are to the right within the stone wall. A check-in lobby lay beyond the entry. The main lobby and grandest views (below) are accessed via a wide stairway.
