Randell Makinson, the foremost authority on their works, has organized their projects into recognizable periods an styles, beginning in 1984 in Pasadena, rising to their masterworks created from 1907 and 1909, and culminating in their separate but cooperative careers in the teens. "It is the yin and yang that the brothers brought to each project which is cause for that undeniable sririt pervading each of their joint works" says Makinson. The Greene brothers' sensual blending of architecture, landscape, furnishings, and the decorative arts creates the hallmark of their Craftsman style. Colour photography throughout the book highlights their furniture and lighting designs as well as their classic bungalow exteriors: also included are some important archival images and architectural plans.
