Edward Giddings was not typical of anyone. Nor was his work. In his world he saw images quite contrary to the norm. As a result, his unheard of approach to the design of living spaces astounded some and filled others with admiration and awe.
Edward Giddings was no conformist. On his drafting board there was no basic procedure, no familiar solutions, no worn clichés. In the end his buildings, particularly those in Mexico, seemed to grow out of the jungle, the desolate beaches, the palm trees and the tropical foliage, joining with the land forever.
In his rich imagination he saw no limits to original design. He turned his back on tradition, on conventional styles and custom, even the opinions of his peers. He set forth to deliver a kind of architecture that at first startled the professional world, then drew applause from critics, colleagues and clients.
