Birdhouse Residence by Adam Sokol

One of the fastest growing and richest American cities in the early 20th century, Buffalo’s remaining building stock from its boom times is hard to match. But a lengthy period of economic stagnation and suburbanization since has led to a scant collection of postwar architecture, particularly housing. A hopeful sign of more progressive times exists, however, in what’s called “Birdhouse,” a new residence by local architect Adam Sokol.

At Home in L.A.

Currently on view in Los Angeles is an unconventional show organized by the artist Fritz Haeg, best known for his Edible Estates project, in which he helps homeowners replace their front lawns with wilder, food-producing gardens. "At Home in L.A." is an interactive installation that invites visitors to make themselves at home on a massive crocheted rug and to "try out" L.A. living for a little while.

Lofty Living: Stockholm Bedroom

In a 495-square-foot attic in the Söder neighborhood of Stockholm, interior designer Jimmy Schönning—a local celebrity for his role in the Swedish TV shows "Finally at Home" and "Styling Emergency"—has carved out a sweet and stylish home. His diminutive studio is chockablock with creative storage solutions (built-in closets; a washer and drier hidden under a workbench in the bathroom) and loads of personality. We especially love how cozy and efficient Schönning's bedroom is: tucked into the eaves of the building and accessible from a stunning concrete stair set against an inky black wall.

Photographer Nicholas Alan Cope's Black and White L.A.

For the past seven years, Los Angeles based architecture photographer Nicholas Alan Cope has been capturing the striking modernist cityscape the City of Angels has to offer and recently assembled them all in a stunning new book, with a foreword by fashion designer Rick Owens, called Whitewash. What's so beautiful about Whitewash is its reliance on the stark abstraction and contrast of the structures to hold your intrigue without telling you what or where the building is—it really is just a surreal and amazing picture book. He does give clues as to the neighborhood, so perhaps some local Angelinos will know and choose to keep the mystery alive, so it remains all about the photography and not the location.
