About the Author
KEITH MOSKOW and ROBERT LINN are principals of Moskow Linn Architects in Boston, a firm committed to sustainable, environmentally sensitive design using the forms and materials of New England architecture. Within a general practice, the firm is particularly known for small-scale interventions within the urban fabric intended to improve the quality of city life. Recent designs include Zip Car Dispenser, based on the famous Pez candy dispenser, and River Genie, a barge to collect waterborne garbage, both of which were premiated by the AIA. Moskow and Linn are the authors of two books on contemporary residential architecture on Martha's Vineyard, where they have completed multiple commissions, and of Small Scale: Creative Solutions for Better City Living (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010).

The photography ranges from adequate to fantastic. The setting almost always adds to the subject, which is, really remarkable, considering the far-flung designs and placement, thereof. Places for observing the world, places for art, for meditation, for shelter. Places for working and places for living, from mountains to deserts and just about everywhere in between.
There is both whimsy and greatness in many of these designs and this book is a good introduction to a type of architecture not widely known. If you are already an aficionado of the unusual spot in the landscape, you'll find that this book will certainly whet your appetite for more.
My only complaint; it could have more specific details on these creations that it highlights!
