In what city is the "Piazza d’Italia" (1979) by Charles Moore? How was Moore himself memorialized in this plaza?
Question from Last Week:
Architecture Puzzler #264
If you requested a new tree with a two-inch (51-millimeter) caliper, you would be referring to the diameter of the trunk of the tree. At what height would you take this measurement? If your surveyor said that there was an old oak on the property with a 42-inch (1067-millimeter) caliper trunk, at what height would this measurement have been taken?
