Calling all architects! Join Dwell for what promises to be a dynamic three days of modern architecture during the Dwell Modern Home Tours at the country's largest design event, Dwell on Design, June 21-23.
On April 24th at the Atlanta Sub-Zero and Wolf showroom, Dwell Deputy Editor Jaime Gillin will join luxury appliance leader Sub-Zero and Wolf with panelists Doug Henderson, Co-Owner of Switch Modern, and Alison Weidner, Architectural Sales Manager at Poggenpohl Atlanta, for a special discussion about the latest high-end appliances, the newest trends in traditional and contemporary design, and what the future holds for your kitchen.
This month, Dwell had the pleasure of touring the World Trade Center Memorial with lead architect Michael Arad. Arad was awarded the commission for his design "Reflecting Absence" in 2004 and worked closely with LMDC and families of the victims to arrive at the present design. With Work and Play as its theme, the eight acre site acts as an urban room allowing visitors and locals to gather while honoring the victims and celebrating life. Until construction is completed, tickets must be reserved in advance at National September 11 Memorial Memorial & Museum.
The 22nd annual Los Angeles Modernism Show, held May 1–3 at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, featured more than 70 exhibitors with mid-century wares trucked in from all over the country. Sponsored in part by the peripatetic über-site 1stdibs.com, the show was mostly hits and a scant few misses, and vendors looked beyond their choice Le Corbusier and Eames gems to bring spectators something a little more unexpected. Check out some of our favorite pieces from the showroom floor, culled by writer Erika Heet.
