From the Rizzoli 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 bohemian residents. Cutting-edge new public buildings have also enhanced the area’s cachet. Working with spatial and financial restraints, architects in Brooklyn have demonstrated deft solutions to urban living everywhere.

The December 12-26, 2002 issue of Time Out New York features the JPDA / Melanie Crean collaboration Oculus. Writer Angela Gunn reports:

"Here in the city, kids are sprawling on the floor at Grand Central Terminal to gaze up as ... flocks of doves fly through an opening in the ceiling of the main concourse. Who needs nature – or hallucinogens – when you've got technology?" (p.253)

JPDA worked closely with New York-based projection experts Scharff Wiesberg who provided the installation's unique bleeding-edge Catalyst projection system. Peter Scharff reflects, "this kind of light show wasn't possible a year ago." Gunn comments:

"Oculus... looks less like a video installation than a painting."
