On April 20th, the school will open a permanent art gallery to exhibit 138 pieces of art, including ancient Asian pottery, lithographs, sketches, and paintings by such artists as Salvador Dalí, William Merritt Chase, Joan Miró, and Pablo Picasso.

Dean’s List Dorms Across America

The factory-line model is out for student housing; in its place, thoughtful solutions for community living engender enthusiasm for higher education and respect for a greener future. As dorms from Buffalo to Seattle make the dean’s list in terms of sustainability—lighting and heating triggered by sensors, stormwater education, and recycled materials get prominent play—also expect passing marks as architects create non-institutional buildings with well-lit spaces, open community quarters, room-size choices, built-in technology, flexible uses, and thoughtful indoor-outdoor relationships. Here, we collect three shining examples.

MoMA Foreclosed WorkAC

Rehousing the American Dream at MoMA

By current estimates, close to 11 million American homeowners are in serious distress, owing more on their homes than the homes themselves are worth. Foreclosure rates have been elevated since the financial crisis began in 2008, and the value of the nation’s housing stock is projected to continue to plummet for the foreseeable future. The dismal state of American housing, and of the suburban landscape that’s been Ground Zero for the crisis, is the subject of “Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream”, a new exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art open until July 30th. Under Chief Curator Barry Bergdoll, MoMA’s Department of Architecture & Design has brought together the contributions of five collaborative teams, each of which recasts the old-fashioned bedroom community for the 21st century.

Amirah Shahid biking Cycle China

Cycle China: Week 5

In this special five-part series, we're riding along with SWA Group landscape designer Amirah Shahid as she cycles nearly 800 miles from Beijing to Shanghai (find the previous posts here). Join us as she tells about her journey and files exclusive photos from the road in an attempt to better understand China's urban and rural biking culture. Week Five: Back in the USA...   After three weeks of cycling from Beijing to Shanghai, landscape designer Amirah Shahid is back on U.S. soil. She traveled on dirt roads and newly paved national highways, around cows and drying bark on the road, on a ferry to cross the Yangtze River, and more. We caught up with Shahid over a cup of coffee, her first in weeks, to recount the 800-mile journey.

Cycle China: Week 4

In this special five-part series, we're riding along with SWA Group landscape designer Amirah Shahid as she cycles nearly 800 miles from Beijing to Shanghai (find the previous posts here). Join us as she tells about her journey and files exclusive photos from the road in an attempt to better understand China's urban and rural biking culture. Week Three: Arriving in Shanghai...   Landscape designer Amirah Shahid has dodged cows and poplar bark drying along roadsides on her nearly 800-mile cycling journey from Beijing to Shanghai. In this update, she makes it to her final destination—but not without a ferry trip to cross the Yangtze River (where bikes are not allowed on the bridge)—and contends with smog and rain along the way. Her SWA Group colleagues from the Shanghai office, however, were ready to toast her success upon arrival with glasses held high at an Oktoberfest Festival organized by a local Chinese development group.

Chicken Chapel

Chicken Chapel

Architect Keith Moskow grew up doing grunt construction work. His dad was a builder and after his first year of college, he helped build their family's summer home. "I was doing lowly work, but it was really good experience to think about architecture and building and how it goes together," Moskow says. A partner at Moskow Linn Architects for more than 20 years, he and cofounder Robert Linn decided it was time to help a new generation of designers. Earlier this year, they established Studio North, a design-build branch of their practice, and with five eager students, created and constructed the Chicken Chapel.
