Book Review: New York, New York

By Michael Webb

Guide to Contemporary New York City Architecture. John Hill. Norton ($29.95).

This is a catch-up review of a handy pocketbook I missed when it first appeared—much to my regret. It would have saved me hours of digging up information on new buildings and have been an indispensable companion on recent visits to New York. Having written an architectural guide to LA, and edited two others, I know how much skill and effort must have been invested in research, selection, procuring images, and writing succinct descriptions. Hill has chosen more than 200 buildings completed in the first decade of the 21st century in all five boroughs, plus a selection of projects anticipated for the second decade. What makes the guide a joy to use is the clarity of the layout, in which buildings are grouped in 22 districts and indicated on useful maps that also include subway stops. Scattered through the geographical coverage are break-out sections on public spaces, designer shops and restaurants, fire houses, memorials and other categories.

FORM Fashion: Making Math Wearable

Developed by architect Anne Trelease, the Cartesian scarf has an innovative design that fits the wearer's body without adding bulk. Super chic, it can be worn multiple ways and even double as a head wrap. Image via Kickstarter/Cartesian.For architect Anne Trelease, designing apparel and designing buildings are not so far apart. “It’s very similar to architecture,” she points out, “in that even the most mundane decisions involve time-consuming research and painstaking mock-ups, drawn, built or otherwise.  And you either have to finish it or shelve it.” She should know. Her newest project is the Cartesian Scarf, an innovative take on knitted neckwear that’s design to bend and twist and to conform to a wearer’s body without being bulky.

Book Review: The Building Impulse

By Michael Webb

Why We Build: Power and Desire in Architecture. Rowan Moore (HarperDesign, $30).

Rowan Moore is the outspoken architectural critic of The Observer, one of the last serious newspapers in Britain—a market increasingly dominated by tawdry tabloids. His commentaries on new buildings can be found on the Web site of The Guardian, a liberal daily owned by the same non-profit trust. In Why We Build, he has stepped back to reflect on a broad swathe of architecture and the forces that shape it.

The FORM Questionnaire: A Conversation with Russell Greenberg

U*tique, a luxury vending machine concept, springs from the mind of Russell Greenberg. Image courtesy RUX Design. Russell Greenberg founded RUX in 2008 with the intention of creating a space for innovative thinking, where, as he puts it, "lightning strikes twice daily." In practice it means the firm's portfolio encompasses everything from architecture and product design to brand identity and technology. Stickbulb, a line of lighting, launched last year, and there's also Cameo, a jewelry collection, not to mention a luxury vending machine concept. We're delighted to bring you a conversation with Russell, as part of our on-going q-and-a series with architects and designers. Here, he touches on the beauty of fragments—and a complicated relationship with caffeine. You can also see more of his work in our Summer issue, arriving soon.
