    DESIGN THIS WEEK

    HIGH DESERT MODERN

    The Atacama Desert, in northern Chile, is one of the driest deserts on earth. It is a startlingly brutal place where boiling geysers burst through mountain plains caked in salt, and jagged red rocks give way to massive sand dunes and desolate open salt flats.

    POSTCARD FROM NEBRASKA

This is one of the most detailed kiln-formed art glass piece in the world, with text, photographs, and drawings reproduced in relief, part of a wall project created with the close collaboration of architect Greg Newport of the Clark-Enerson Partnership.

    There are many legends about the destruction of the great library in Alexandria 2000 years ago, but much less historical fact about the building itself has survived. Three libraries may have coexisted in the ancient city, but scant data remains about their location, layout, holdings, organization, administration, or physical structure.
