Last Summer, Two Trees bought the Domino Sugar Factory site in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn to be developed into a new mix-use master plan. The previously proposed scheme by Rafael Viñoly Architects (seen here) consisted of four large towers along the East River water front, but the design was largely disliked by the community, and as a result Two Trees hired SHoP Architects along with James Corner Field Operations to have a go at the design. The result is a wildly different scheme, consisting of five towers with 60% more open space along the water front, 631,000 square feet of new office space (versus the previous 98,000 square feet), and over two-thousand new apartments. This marks a huge change for what could be considered as the most important waterfront real estate in Brooklyn, and potentially become the new image of Brooklyn for the whole world.

With Brazil at the center of such current worldwide attention, renowned architecture firms have been flocking to the country for work; partly to be associated with the upcoming 2014 World Cup and/or 2016 Summer Olympics, but also because Brazil’s current economy allows for booming architectural possibilities. The new Leblon Offices for VINCI Partners in Rio de Janeiro will be a historic first step for Richard Meier & Partners as their first architectural undertaking in South America, and it certainly lives up to the hype.

Review: De Stoel van Rietveld: Rietveld's Chair, book + film by Marijke Kuper & Lex Reitsma

“It is hard to tell what the value of something eventually will be”

Gerrit Rietveld, 1937.

This new insight into a classic illustrates Gerrit Rietveld’s transition from humble cabinet maker’s son to Architect and leading designer in the De Stijl movement. The book and film compliment each other nicely, covering several different furniture designs both preceding and subsequent to the famed Red Blue Chair, including alternate versions of that particular design (unpainted, arm rest panels, etc.).

Each year the Texas Society of Architects recognizes a building that was completed 25-50 years ago which they believe has “stood the test of time by retaining its central form, character, and overall architectural integrity”.  This year, the prestigious honor is awarded to Fountain Place, designed by Henry Cobb of I. M. Pei & Partners and completed back in 1986 in Dallas, Texas.
