Join photographer Darren Bradley and author Sam Lubell as they chronicle their adventures visiting the East Coast's Midcentury Modern architectural treasures. The team travelled from the Canadian border to Miami to explore the region’s most iconic works, as well as its hidden gems by lesser known, but equally wonderful, architects. Along the way, the intrepid duo faced many obstacles, such as hurricanes, overzealous security guards, and illegally parked delivery vans, to bring you a very comprehensive guidebook that highlights the breadth and depth of Modernist architecture, in all of its forms across the entire Eastern Seaboard.
Sam Lubell is a writer based in New York. He has written nine books about architecture, and writes for multiple publications, including The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Wallpaper, Dwell, Wired, The Atlantic, The Architect’s Newspaper, Architectural Record, and Metropolis.
