Mid-Century Modern Architecture Travel Guide: East Coast USA


A curated list of more than 250 must-see destinations organized geographically from Maine to Florida


Written by Sam Lubell. Photography by Darren Bradley


Editions:

Price: USD$35.00

A curated list of more than 250 must-see destinations organized geographically from Maine to Florida

Featuring architecture by some of the biggest Mid-Century names, including Mies van der Rohe, Marcel Breuer, Eero Saarinen, and Philip Johnson, each of the more than 250 buildings is located on a regional map. The book includes all the additional information needed to find and visit each building.

Its cool and functional design makes this book a coveted Modernist-style object in itself.

Including icons from The Met Breuer to the fabulous beach houses of Fire Island, private homes in Connecticut, Manhattan skyscrapers, and the Tropical Modern residences of Sarasota, Florida, it is a must-have guide to one of the most fertile and lesser-known regions for the development of Mid-Century Modern architecture.

From the publisher of Mid-Century Modern Architecture Travel Guide: West Coast USA.

"For daydreamers and explorers alike, Phaidon's new design-led travel guide to the USA's East Coast is the perfect companion... Road trips are as American as apple pie, diners and, it seems, émigré Mid-Century Modern architects... [A] beautifully curated guide...

Whether you decide to read it and daydream or book a trip and explore in person is up to you."—BrummellMagazine.co.uk
