About the Author


KEITH MOSKOW and ROBERT LINN are principals of Moskow Linn Architects in Boston, a firm committed to sustainable, environmentally sensitive design using the forms and materials of New England architecture. Within a general practice, the firm is particularly known for small-scale interventions within the urban fabric intended to improve the quality of city life. Recent designs include Zip Car Dispenser, based on the famous Pez candy dispenser, and River Genie, a barge to collect waterborne garbage, both of which were premiated by the AIA. Moskow and Linn are the authors of two books on contemporary residential architecture on Martha's Vineyard, where they have completed multiple commissions, and of "Small Scale: Creative Solutions for Better City Living" (Princeton Architectural Press, 2010).
