Published by Visual Profile Books, Michigan Modern: An Architectural Legacy takes readers on a privileged tour of iconic buildings and interiors designed by some of the world’s most renowned and celebrated architects and interior designers. Each of the 34 selected projects is carefully documented to record its place in art history and the story behind both its architect and client. What brings every space to life, of course, is detailed and enlightening text by Brian D. Conway and sparkling color photography taken expressly for this book by James Haefner. One breathtaking view after another invites readers to enter what are often private realms not open to the public to explore the innovative and often breathtaking design solutions presented on these pages.

Indeed, it would be hard for anyone to resist the magnificent buildings and interiors chosen for this publication.
