A New Era
Jackson Lake Lodge
The Jackson Lake Lodge introduced a new standard for national park architecture in the 1950s. This building marked the transition in national parks from rustic to modern design. Famed architect Gilbert Stanley Underwood revolutionized park architecture by combining modern materials with rustic accents, such as wood grain-textured concrete seen on this building.
