Tyler Haughey’s work examines the built environment and seasonal economy of northeastern coastal towns. He explores how we use, interact with, and remember places designed for leisure, as well as the limitations of these destinations and what is required to keep their facades intact. His series Ebb Tide takes as its subject the Wildwoods, a group of small coastal towns in southern New Jersey, which is home to a trove of midcentury-modern motels that makes up the largest concentration of postwar resort architecture in the United States. Adopting a spare aesthetic and using contemporary materials such as poured concrete and glass, the motels brought European high modernism to the American middle class.
