glass

glass is heralded as one of the most important materials in modern architecture and can be found in almost every building. but in these trying times (i.e. deadlines) let us not forget why we put windows in our buildings.

Chicago Site Photos

Hey everyone,

Figured it would make sense to share site photos on the server. I created a folder called “Project 3 Site Photos” in the “48-205” folder under “Studios” which will be organized by where the photo is taken from. This should make it easy for us to find the views we need. You may want to put photos into a folder with your name on it (or otherwise tag them) so that you can be credited when someone uses your photo (is this important to people?).

Feel free to create new folders for other vantage points.

Thanks!

New Development Planned for Mt. Washington

Just saw some drawings for a new development at the top of the incline. Check it:

Brief project description:

“The proposed mixed-use development includes a world-class, 110 room hotel, 55-unit condominium, spa and fitness center, and fine-dining restaurant. The site will also feature a grand public terrace that will extend the Grandview promenade and offer unparalleled views of Pittsburgh and the Three Rivers. Recognizing the importance of sustainable design, the entire project will strive to obtain a LEED Silver rating.”

And here is the architecture firm.
