This Friday, Powerhouse Arena in DUMBO is hosting a panel conversation with Diana Lind, author of the recently released Brooklyn Modern. Other panelists include architect Tina Manis, and Jonathan Butler, creator of Brownstoner.com and Brooklyn Flea...
From the publisher's website: "Brooklyn Modern is the first book to explore the connection between Brooklyn's astounding rebirth and its emerging architecture. As the new cultural heart of New York, Brooklyn has recently attracted many young people interested in creating their own sense of space, as well as in renovating brownstones and townhouses. The results are homes that express the optimism, resourcefulness, and experimentation of many of Brooklyn's residents."
For those who have yet to visit the Arena, be sure to stop by early so you have a chance to browse. Powerhouse offers a huge array of art and photography books of interest to Apartment Therapy readers, including the gorgeous Jeremiah: A Romantic Vision, a retrospective of famed interior illustrator Jeremiah Goodman's work.
Powerhouse Arena is located at 37 Main Street in Brooklyn
