Submit A Comment | View Comments

In May, The Monacelli Press will release a new book called Martha's Vineyard: Contemporary Living by Keith Moskow, AIA, and Robert Linn. The principals of Moskow Linn Architects in Boston, the authors have assembled a collection of houses from such firms as the Office of Peter Rose, Hutker Architects, Rick Sundberg/Olson Kundig Architects, and Shope Reno Wharton.

The book is a sequel of sorts to Moskow's first volume, The Houses of Martha's Vineyard, and features more recent projects. "We have chosen to study the introduction of a contemporary vocabulary to the island's landscape," he and Linn write in the introduction. A handy map shows approximately where on the island each project is located, and floor and site plans complement the full-color photography. Wood and stone are the predominant materials in the featured houses, many of which consist of a group of smaller pavilions rather than one large building. Fans of the Vineyard--or just of contemporary takes on a traditional vernacular--will enjoy perusing its pages.--m.d.
