From Herzog & de Meuron’s new high-rise building to the High Line, we doubt we’ll ever be short of material to write about.
We bring you five projects that take the façade into extra special consideration. Whether it's a new building or a renovation to an existing one, it's what's on the outside that counts.
NEW YORK CITY – Sparkly and shiny domestic properties are very nice for living in but often don't make the most interesting of subjects to critique.
EVANSTON – The sheer number of students on any given university campus can be quite daunting and it is not difficult to walk past hundreds of people each day.
NEW YORK CITY – Governors Island has been derelict for decades. After a substantial redesign by landscape designer Adriaan Geuze, the archipelago is worth a visit.
COLORADO – Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to invite you to the greatest force that has ever existed, the US Air Force.
LOS ANGELES – In a fruitful collaboration, students from the architecture school SCI-Arc use their skills to help a local charity build innovative housing for a small price.
CAMBRIDGE – Architects are usually either concerned with creating structures that will prevent the impact of natural forces, or with the reconstruction when these structures fail.
BUFFALO – A studio with distinct materialities and atmospheres responds to the clients' wish to share one building but maintain separate work environments.
CORNING – Thomas Phifer and Partners restore the modernist museum building of the Corning Museum of Glass and attach an addition which exudes the potential of glass.
LOS ANGELES – A museum that celebrates the history of cars is redesigned by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates to have a dynamic exterior in Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES – An urban housing development that promotes a sense of community, nature and design for budding families.
