MONTGOMERY MODERN is a chronicle of mid-century modern architecture in Montgomery County, Maryland. Located outside the nation's capital, the county experienced a great post-war building boom, benefiting from access to federal jobs and an alluring natural landscape. Heralding a new age,a bold, forward-looking design transformed a region, from organic custom residences in rugged stream valleys to glass walled tract houses on wooded sites, from jewel-box offices in new commercial districts to gleaming corporate campus headquarters and exuberant roadside businesses.About the Author:
