Brett Woods and Joe Dangaran; Introduction by Michael Webb (Rizzoli, $75)

Architects Brett Woods and Joe Dangaran admit to a passion for midcentury Modern design—so much so that they are often commissioned to restore the best examples of the genre, including Craig Ellwood’s iconic 1965 house, known as the Moore House. While they are masters at restoring and reinventing venerable examples of the era, they are known, too, for creating new residences that have made them stars of the architectural world, especially on the West Coast. They may each possess a modernist soul, but they have the availability to create new contemporary masterpieces.
