Kickstarter of the Week: Grown in the Garden State

You might consider New Jersey the Edsel of the mid-Atlantic, but illustrator Michael Mulvey is a proud son of the Garden State and he wants to do Jersey proud with this poster, t-shirts and set of playing cards. Grown in the Garden State is his plan to graphically lionize 54 of New Jersey's favorite sons and daughters, entertainers and actors who range from Bruce (natch) to Ray Liotta to Martha Stewart to Patti Smith. He's even got a series of t-shirts he's designing, all of which have a clean design and cool aesthetic that's more art school than Snooki.

Tumblr of the Week: Ryan Panos

In his eponymous Tumblr, Ryan Panos offers a cool selection of high-contrast black-and-white photographs that depict the abstract and geometric side of architecture. These aren't your warm and cozy interiors—just structure at its most steely. We like that Panos frequently answers questions from visitors, which gives a more personal feel to the collection. For example, someone asks: "What do you love most in architecture?" Panos replies: "I suppose I love the variety in it, that it simultaneously represents culture, society, the contemporary world we are constructing. The way light hits a facade, a detail is expressed, how one commission can turn the economics of a city." Well said.

Around Manhattan Architectural Boat Tours by AIA New York

New York City is synonymous with the great buildings that stand within its limits: the Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, the Chrysler Building, and the Flatiron all scream The Big City. Their facades are famous—but they alone don’t make up the eponymous skyline—which is why tourists and New Yorkers alike should consider joining the New York Chapter of the AIA on one of their 32-mile Around Manhattan boat tours circumnavigating the isle of Manhattan.
