By Diana Lind Photography by Yoko Inoue $45 Brooklyn Modern: Architecture, Interiors & Design is the first book to explore the connection between Brooklyn’s renaissance and its emerging architecture community. As the new cultural heart of New York, Brooklyn has attracted many young families and couples interested in renovating brownstones and townhouses; these renewed homes reflect their owners’ experimentation and resourcefulness. Working with spatial and financial restraints, the architects, designers, and homeowners featured here have demonstrated deft solutions that are relevant to urban living everywhere. Essays by two popular, local bloggers, Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge and Jonathan Butler of Brownstoner, and a conclusion by the editor of Architectural Record, Robert Ivy, give perspective on living in Brooklyn as its aesthetics and landscape change. Stunning, new color photography provides and intimate look at some of the area’s most interesting spaces.
