Michigan Modern

 On Friday, March 22nd at 7PM, author Brian Conway and photographer James Haefner are presenting their latest book, Michigan Modern: An Architectural Legacy.

This monograph presents 34 selected projects carefully documented to record both its architect and client. One breathtaking view after another invites readers to enter what are often private realms not open to the public, to explore the innovative and cutting-edge design solutions presented on these pages.

Brian D. Conway has worked as Michigan's State Historic Preservation Officer since 1997, graduated from University of Michigan's Taubman College of Architecture and Planning. He has also lectured across the country on topics related to modernism and historic preservation

James Haefner graduated at Rochester Institute of Technology in 1976 and opened his own studio in 1979. Haefner’s love of modern design drew him into the architectural world fifteen years ago. Employing a unique workflow, his ability to capture the designer’s intentions—whether the subject is an automobile or a structure—is paramount to his success.

Copies of Michigan Modern: An Architectual Legacy are availabe for purchase before and during the event at The Mitten Word Bookshop.
