Architect and former punk rocker and studio artist Robert Stone stands in the outdoor living room of his one-bedroom desert dwelling, Rosa Muerta, on the outskirts of Joshua Tree. The low-slung black pavilion's living room is appointed with a large spa, fire pit and free-standing barbecue. "I'm not interested in big unconventional approaches to architecture," Stone says. "I think there is room in architecture for capturing the moment and local situations -- something both cultural and site specific."
