Book: Robert R. Taylor and Tuskegee

New South Books has released a new book on the nation’s first professionally trained African-American architect, Robert Taylor (Taylor was also the first African-American graduate of MIT). Robert R. Taylor and Tuskegee was researched and written by architectural historian Ellen Weiss, professor emerita at Tulane University’s School of Architecture and Planning. The book connects Taylor’s personal life with a prominent product of his ground breaking career—the campus of Booker T. Washington’s Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute in Alabama. The book also considers the state of architectural education for African Americans at the turn of the 20th century and the white donors who funded Tuskegee’s buildings, other Tuskegee architects, and Taylor’s buildings elsewhere.


Product: The Proust Chair by Alesandro Mendini

The influential Italian designer Alessandro Mendini has produced a re-edition of a classic from contemporary Italian design originally produced by Studio Alchimia in 1978. The chair is structured by a hand-carved and hand-painted wooden frame and upholstered with rotational-moulded polyethylene, so it works for an outdoor setting. The Proust is available in a full range of monochrome palettes and a bright multi-colored fabric. The chair is manufactured by Cappellini and available through Magis.

Project: Jean Nouvel’s Les Grandes Tables

The Les Grandes Tables restaurant, by Architect Jean Nouvel, makes innovative use of a salvaged shipping container (the former property of automaker Renault) by elevating the container and surrounding it with a clear case. The result is a simple but beautiful exposure of the innards of the building, similar to the effect of an x-ray. The structure’s clear exterior and a retractable roof allow natural ventilation and light while seamlessly interacting with the adjacent garden and greenhouse. Architectural lighting, illuminated at night around the building’s edges, centers the building as a beacon of design for the surrounding neighborhood, and the ramp approaching the dining space evokes the Promenade Plantée in Paris or the High Line in New York City. The restaurant is the first phase of Nouvel’s ambitious plan to revitalize the neglected Seguin Island neighborhood in Western Paris to become the city’s newest cultural and tourist destination (the completion of Nouvel’s vision for the neighborhood is expected in 2013). The restaurant is currently serving large meetings and weddings, employing famous French Chef Arnaud Daguin, who serves locally sourced regional cuisine.
