Kickstarter of the Week: From Sea to Shining Sea

FIlmmaker and landscape architect Evan Mather has already produced a small clutch of great films about the built environment. We showed his excellent "A Necessary Ruin" about the Union Tank Car Dome in Baton Rouge at Dwell on Design a few years back, and in 2011 we covered his film aimed at preserving the amazing modernist Phyllis Wheatley Elementary School in New Orleans. Now he's working on a time-lapse, feature-length account of a drive across America.

Atlanta is known for many things but modern architecture has surely never been one of them. But if you know where to look, you can find the city's modern side. Ahead of Dwell's April 24 "Innovations in Kitchen Design" event at the Sub-Zero and Wolf Atlanta showroom, we take a look at the city's design scene.

Q&A with Graphic Designer Julian Montague

With a penchant for all things print, Julian Montague has built up an impressive collection of work including most recently his State of America series (which we previously gushed over). Based in Buffalo, New York, Montague takes on a heavy load of local projects, creating visual identities for local coffee shops, restaurants, and speakers series. But his work stretches well beyond the local sphere, including art installations (his Animals & Architecture exhibit debuts this summer at Galerie Le Toutouchic in Metz, France) and album covers for an international collection of musicians. Enamored with mid-century book design, he also operates the blog, Julian Montague Projects, sharing old books he finds on a nearly daily basis, perhaps providing inspiration for himself as he now designs book covers for local publishing company, Starcherone. We caught up with Montague via email to ask what else he's working on and what inspires him.

Here are a few of our favorite stories from the Dwell archive from the great wintry north!

Janne Saario's Modern Skate Parks

We've reported on modern skate parks before, but rarely have we seen such a perfect marriage of skating and landscape design as the one embodied by the Finnish Janne Saario. Saario started skating when he was six, eventually got sponsored, and through his experience riding around the world he developed an interest in designing landscapes. He's got his own firm now, with a specialty in skate parks. Check out our slideshow of some of his designs as well as this great video that shows him at work and at play.
