The Valley is full of midcentury buildings, generally described as those built between 1945-1975.

And a new book takes a look at those buildings, specifically in the East Valley.

It’s called "And Tiko-Tu," for reasons that’ll be explained.

To talk about it is the book’s author, Mark Vinson. He’s an architect and Tempe’s former city architect.
