Philip Kennicott Wins Pulitzer Prize

In mid-April, 2013, Washington Post columnist Philip Kennicott won the Pulitzer Prize for criticism. Naturally we're thrilled that Kennicott, who frequently writes about architecture for the Post, won, placing him in hallowed company with architecture critics like Ada Louise Huxtable and Paul Goldberger. We're even more thrilled because Kennicott is one of our favorite contributors, a sharp-penned writer whose finely attuned aesthetic eye never fails to see how, and if, a building actually works. Congratulations again to you, Philip. And if you've missed his contributions to Dwell, read on.

Alexander McQueen and the Meaning of Life

I did not attend “Savage Beauty,” the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, thinking that I would fall to my knees and weep at the recognition of some finite and indefinable quality (genius?).

Megaprojects born of an unsustainably strong economy rule the day: The city is carving a 30-mile canal—a second Bosporus—from the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara and a cross-continental metro tunnel, from Europe to Asia, beneath the strait." Today, a modern heart beats within its ancient walls. Here, a compilation of Dwell's favorite finds in the city that bridges—both literally and figuratively—Europe and Asia.
