Top 5 Houses on Dwell This Week
- As the long weekend slowly draws to a near, we've gathered up five of our most clicked on homes on Dwell this week for your perusal.
- From a colorful renovation with mid-century roots to an industrial open-plan space, here is a cool quintet of kitchens we wouldn't mind cooking in. Click here to see Part One and Two.
- A flat renovated by a pair of fashion insiders breathes new life into architect Moshe Safdie's iconic Habitat '67 building.
- Mezzanines are, by definition, in-between spaces—neither here, nor there; neither upstairs nor down. But mezzanines needn't be wasted space.
- It’s not just for stuffy tweeds; herringbone patterns have a distinct place in modern design. See how in these 8 houses, from Paris to Tokyo.
- Federico Babina's Archist City imagines what artist's own houses might look like—and while the resulting architecture is only imaginary, we've rounded up a few Dwell homes that fit the bill.
Internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie will discuss his design philosophy and the evolution of his urban design concepts in an upcoming ArtTalk lecture at the National Academy. For On Invention and Fitness: Humanizing Megascale, Safdie will discuss a selection of his work from the landmark structure Habitat '67 to the recently-completed United States Institute of Peace headquarters, which is currently featured in the National Academy's exhibition Seismic Shifts. Safdie will also discuss his firm's megascale projects currently under construction in the Far East. This talk is presented as part of Seismic Shifts: 10 Visionaries in Contemporary Art and Architecture, on view at the Academy through May 5.
General Admission: $15 | Seniors & Students: $10 | Free for NA Members & Students.
