Awards Report: California Firm Receives Coveted P/A Prize

CRO Studio's design for a library in Tijuana, Mexico, also serves as a civic hub. Image courtesy CRO Studio.

While Modulo Prep Library’s footprint may be small and its construction budget tiny, its mission is anything but. Instead, the library, located in Tijuana and designed by CRO Studio partners Adriana Cuéllar and Marcel Sanchez (along with a design team of Gabriela Bendeck, Arturo González and Joseph Ruiz Tapia), represents a major re-thinking of the idea and function of a library and its role in a public space. So compelling was the project and the ideas behind it recently received the 60th annual Progressive Architecture Award.

Recommended Viewing: The ABC of Architects

The ABC of Architects from fedelpeye on Vimeo.

A team including architect Andrea Stinga and graphic designer Federico Gonzalez has complied this very cool soundtracked video that gives graphic representation to the most famous buildings from the world's most famous architects--listed from A to Z. Stinga and Gonzalez apologize that they had to leave out a few "because we only need one for each letter and we done an effort to have difference [sic] nationalities," but despite the lack of Ando and Zumthor, Stinga and Gonzalez have still accomplished a fun, colorful survey of architecture of different eras and environments. Watch the video on Vimeo for a complete list of the architects and their representative buildings.

New Michael Webb Posts 

FORM contributor and newly-minted honorary AIA member Michael Webb has been doing some serious reading, checking in with a trio of book reviews over on the Views tab of the FORM Mag website. First is White Cube, Green Maze: New Art Landscapes, which documents a succession of inventive exhibitions at the Heinz Architectural Center in Pittsbugh curated by Raymund Ryan. Next is The Iconic Interior: Private Spaces of Leading Artists, Architects, and Designers, which Webb describes as a "gorgeous indulgence." Finally, Webb reviews Taschen's latest update of its collection of works by Pritzker Prize winning Japanese Architect Tadao Ando, Ando: Complete Works 1975-2012. The November/December print issue of FORM Magazine includes an interview with Ando, for those craving more of Ando's unique perspective.
