Our world is changing: climate patterns are unbalanced and political systems are distressed. Temperatures, of all kinds, are rising. How can architecture create structures, places for habitation and infrastructure solutions that address the problems of societies in need? Can design enable social and cultural change?
Staying true to that spirit was at the core of all our decisions—which meant our solutions weren’t conventional either. To save the Faculty Club, we had to transform it.
We decided to sit down with our own Stanley Anderson and talk about his passion for modern chairs and modern architecture.
We are pleased to present our fall 2016 issue of evolution, a seasonal journal. This issue offers our reflections on designing campuses and professional schools internationally, followed by POSTINGS: a clipboard of recent engagements of our office.
My journey to The Floating Piers began when a friend sent me a link to the New York Times article in February this year with a short note: “I think you should go there! This is in your backyard!” This is what I appreciate about
Junior high school is an incredibly fun and often difficult time for kids. I distinctly remember the pressures of making friends, maturing gracefully, and balancing school with social activities. But that was
As architects, we can do more to help mitigate climate change. The built environment is a major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, and we can turn that around.
In Part I of this interview, I asked Celia mostly about her experiences growing up with her father, Harry Bertoia. In Part II, we get into her work overseeing his monotypes, writing his biography, and setting up a foundation to extend his legacy.
I’m a Harry Bertoia fan and geek. What can I say? I love timeless midcentury design and art. I met his daughter, Celia Bertoia, last year and effused about my collection of her father’s work, as well that of as her brother Val.
Palm Springs is hotter than ever—and not just because of global warming. If anyone needed further proof, the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio bought a place there last year should seal it. But it’s not just the return of Hollywood celebrities that’s driving the Palm Springs revival. With the housing market back on track after the Great Recession, people with a genuine appreciation for midcentury design are snapping up the modest moderns built for the middle class.
On the occasion of the forthcoming 50th anniversary of the first designs for the Sea Ranch, Metropolis Magazine asked several of Charles Moore's longtime partners to briefly reflect on working with Charles and his importance to the field. Here are some thoughts shared by Buzz Yudell and John Ruble.
As midcentury modern buildings reach the end of their useful lives, a number of academic institutions are having to figure out whether to restore, remodel, or demolish these structures. It's a balancing act, made even more tricky by the fact that different people have radically different responses to the aesthetic qualities of modernism. The solution is to interpret the historic and cultural value of modernism while also helping campuses fulfill their missions.
An unlikely renaissance is occurring in the Grangegorman community on the north side of Dublin, Ireland, where I grew up. The “Celtic Tiger” boom did not greatly change this area. Historically, this working-class neighborhood had started out as agricultural fields and began to urbanize in the 18th century, when it came to house penal and welfare institutions including the Richmond Lunatic Asylum and the Richmond General Penitentiary, both built in 1814. These buildings eventually became part of a major psychiatric hospital. With the purchase of additional land to serve as recreational gardens for patients, and the addition of more buildings, the campus grew to 73 acres, surrounded by a high wall that cut it off from the rest of the city center. Most recently, it has been known as the St. Brendan’s Psychiatric Hospital campus.
