9 Modern Masterpieces by A. Quincy Jones

Though he's often lumped in as one of Joseph's Eichler's gang—and we certainly love what Eichler did for the modern tract home—architect A. Quincy Jones is a midcentury lion in his own right. And thanks to the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles's exhibit A. Quincy Jones: Building for Better Living the man is finally getting the Neutra-level esteem that he deserves. Jones is credited with over 5,000 built projects, many of them the kind of indoor-outdoor-homes for the middle class that have come to define not just California modernism, but post-war American housing in general. The exhibit is part of the Getty-sponsored initiative Pacific Standard Time Presents: Modern Architecture in LA and will dazzle any fan of mid-century design. The show is up through September 8th. Here's a preview.

Sketching Dwell on Design 2013

During Dwell on Design, I have come to realize that sketching images can help to remember and pay attention to small details in design. Therefore, while attending lectures and presentations, I sketched. As the highly influential American architect Michael Graves once said, "A young architect can never read or sketch enough." Click through to see my sketches and notes including buildings by Michael Graves, Bryan Cranston's design team, Ray Kappe, Frank Escher, and more!

The Graham & Co. Lodge Hotel in the Catskills

There’s a boutique hotel tucked away in Phoenicia, New York that sells bold t-shirts starkly demanding Catskills vs. the Hamptons as if to imply “Choose a side.” Besides the tri-state’s penchant for competitiveness on nearly everything, one thing’s for certain: There’s a new weekend destination on the map—and Graham & Co. is the summer’s hippest way to enjoy the West Hudson. Last year, four Brooklyn-based friends—among them OAK founder Jeff Madalena and Athletics Creative Director Jason Gnewikow—noticed their local roadside motel had been recently vacated and, they thought, could benefit from their collective design prowess. They snapped it up and redesigned it from the ground up. Custom-built beds of reclaimed wood, vintage fixtures, house-branded bath amenities, and a free Budweiser at check-in; everything at Graham & Co. has been well considered and expertly executed. Consider our side chosen. Graham & Co. is located at 80 Route 214 Phoenicia, New York.
