Most Stylish Architect in History: Le Corbusier

Genius, pioneer, visionary, tyrant. All fairly describe the Swiss architect Le Corbusier. But should we add style maven to the list? His eyewear has pretty much defined the profession of architecture, and if you've walked the streets of any style capital lately you've probably also seen your fair share of peaked-lapel jackets, bow ties, and high fade haircuts. Here's the visual argument for calling Corbu the steeziest gent to ever lift a T-square.

Kickstarter of the Week: EarthBaked Footware

Call us green and groovy, but we were charmed by industrial designer Steve Boynton's idea for this lasts-a-mere-90-days bit of footwear. Made from wool and rubber, EarthBaked shoes are intended to last just a single season before you bury them in the yard or pitch them into the compost bin. He counts the idea as part of a "return-to-sender design philosophy," one that makes use of natural materials and takes into account the full life cycle of the object. More slippers than proper shoes, EarthBaked footware is ideal for hacking around the house, and insofar as they're intended to wear out after just one season, make sure you get yours for summer.

His new book Things Come Apart is an astounding work of deconstruction, both meticulous and violent. Check out our slideshow to see all the pieces of a smartphone arranged in an orderly fashion. Or maybe it's the crashing bits of bicycle that will get you going. Either way, this is a fascinating glimpse of what makes up the stuff of our everyday lives.

Philip Kennicott Wins Pulitzer Prize

In mid-April, 2013, Washington Post columnist Philip Kennicott won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism. Naturally we're thrilled that Kennicott, who frequently writes about architecture for the Post, won, placing him in hallowed company with architecture critics like Ada Louise Huxtable and Paul Goldberger. We're even more thrilled because Kennicott is one of our favorite contributors, a sharp-penned writer whose finely attuned aesthetic eye never fails to see how, and if, a building actually works. Congratulations again to you, Philip. And if you've missed his contributions to Dwell, read on.
