In 2016, Preservation Long Island recognized Mr. Jake Gorst for, Andrew Geller: Deconstructed, a book that captures the life and career of his grandfather, the Modern architect, Andrew Gellar. By exploring Geller’s architectural legacy on Long Island, Gorst approaches the subject of how a young Brooklynite, born to immigrant parents, entered the field of architecture and became known as the “architect of happiness.”
