    EZRA STOLLER

    Many of the finest examples of Modern architecture from the late 1940s to the late 1970s were "made" by a master — not necessarily the architect, but the man who captured the essence of Modern architecture through the lens of his large-format camera: Ezra Stoller. — Published 2011.0223

    ROYAL GOLD MEDAL FOR I.M. PEI

    The RIBA Royal Gold Medal for 2010 goes to an architect whose renown has been built over several decades of consistently producing a very particular kind of structure — often aspired to, rarely achieved.

    The characteristic buildings of I.M. Pei stand serene with the elemental dignity of high modernism, while at the same time expressing both the dynamism of muscular structural sculpture and the deep subtle touches of sensitivity to context. — Published 2010.0210

    HEAVY THINGS SEEM TO FLOAT IN AIR

    Somewhere between the nostalgic musings of I. M. Pei and the flickering of an independent-minded slideshow, noted Marcel Breuer expert Barry Bergdoll expressed perhaps the most remarkable aspect of Breuer's architecture: "by the end of his career, even heavy things seem to float in air." Bergdoll illustrated his point with a series of striking images in which massive concrete structures balance as if on tiptoe. — Published 2008.0206

    TIMELY WATCHWORKS

    If "Swiss clock maker" conjures an image of quaint craftsmanship conducted in gingerbread workshops, think again. The oldest active watch making firm in the world, Vacheron Constantin, recently celebrated the opening of a new headquarters building that looks as sleek and trim as any 21st-century timekeeping technology. — Published 2005.0209

    CLASSIC HOME 053

    This house in Lincoln, Massachusetts, built by the architect for his own family, is on a site that is level in front and slopes down in the back. The house is wood frame, with steel sash casement windows and vertical tongue-and-groove redwood exterior siding, without gutters or conductors. A stone-floored entry leads to a two-story, south-facing living room. From there, stairs lead down to the dining room and up to the bedrooms. The interior walls and ceilings are plywood panels and 1/4 sawed fir. A stone-floored, screened-in porch faces west. — Published 2003.0618

    IKEA THREATENS BREUER ICON

    On November 7, 2002, the Board of Aldermen of the City of New Haven, Connecticut voted to approve a development proposal from IKEA, an international retailer of designer furnishings. IKEA proposes to build a major new store on an industrial landfill site known as Long Wharf, bringing much-needed jobs and tax revenue to the city. However, unless IKEA changes its current plans, construction of the facility's parking lot will result in the demolition of a substantial part of the Pirelli Building, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1969 for the Armstrong Tire Company. — Published 2002.1113
