Building of the Week

One of my tasks at is the development of the new Building of the Week feature for the US sites. Like the architect's profile listings, I'm trying to find work diverse in many ways (geography, size, building type, material, etc.), so that the projects are a reflection of the country. The feature is structured as a Q&A with the designers, keeping the focus on the architects and their working process.


The current feature (above) is an installation in Brooklyn by SOFTlab. The other buildings to date include (clockwise from top right, below): the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook in Culver City by Safdie Rabines, a retreat in Tennessee by Sanders Pace Architecture, a library in Delaware by ikon.5 architects, and a security kiosk at Pratt Institute by Hangar Design Group.
