John Cronin and the Beacon Institute
For 35 years, John Cronin has safeguarded New York’s waterways, investigating dozens of pollution cases and authoring three laws to protect the Hudson River and its communities. So when Cronin, director and CEO of the Beacon Institute for Rivers and Estuaries, began planning the institute’s first research facility, the Center for Environmental Innovation and Education, he knew its physical form should embody its ecological ideals. Instead of just building green, he went one better: Working with international architecture and design firm Gensler, he transformed an abandoned 19th-century brick factory into a state-of-the-art structure packed with sustainable technologies.

"Beyond the Assignment: Defining Photographs of Architecture and Design examines the work of ten of today’s leading architectural photographers in the United States. By expertly documenting and artfully interpreting the built environment, these artists provide a critical contribution to the history of photography, mass media, and the architecture profession. Beyond the Assignment takes a long-overdue look at the way architectural photographers use visual storytelling, technical precision, and a unique visual sensibility to shape the way we see the built environment. In so doing, these photographers move “beyond the assignment” and help immortalize today’s architecture and design." Click here to see more information.
