Diversity is an attribute — difference is an action.
AIA New Jersey
Diversity is a state of being that describes the similarities and variations people have — in essence, it is a contextual characteristic that does not define you! Think about each attribute as just one tool in in a larger tool bag. Tools are catalysts for change; however, if you swing around the same tool for every job, you will most likely never achieve your goals.

INDUSTRY UPDATES


Tenafly declines to give historical status to Mackay-Lowe Estate
The Record
The Borough Council has opted not to move forward with an historical designation for the Mackay-Lowe Estate. The home at 53 Knickerbocker Road, situated on six acres of land, is up for sale by its owners. The local Historic Preservation Commission had long campaigned for the site to be designated a historic landmark, which would help protect it from demolition and require alterations to be reviewed by a board.

Press of Atlantic City
When Anne Salvatore needed a classic barn for a planned addition to Historic Cold Spring Village, she called an expert on old buildings for help. But Joan Berkey, an architectural historian in Dennis Township, had some bad news for the founder of the living-history museum in Lower Township: many of the old barns in Cape May County were history, too.

Shading a sun-filled courtyard
The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
For an interior courtyard surrounded by the double-height, floor-to-ceiling glazing of the General Services Administration Office Building in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Page senior principal Larry Speck, FAIA, and his team designed a suspended system of transverse wooden slats that serves the building’s site-specific shading needs, while allowing natural light inside. The suspended shading system resulted from a mostly design/build process between Page and Enterprise Builders Corp. though the placement of the slats was integral to the system’s effectiveness.

National Trust releases 2014 Endangered Historic Places watch list
Architectural Record
Stunning architecture — as well as no architecture at all — have earned slots on America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places for 2014. In New Jersey, the Hudson River cliffs known as the Palisades have been anything but occupied. John D. Rockefeller Jr. purchased the craggy landscape to preserve the vista from the Cloisters museum, located in northern Manhattan. LG Electronics is poised to alter the viewshed, with plans for a nearby office building that would rise above the tree line.

Architecture and urban design students helped create a fully functional microhouse built using 3-D printing technology
Phys.Org
A bed. A kitchen. A place for lounging and watching television. Full bathroom. Storage space. Those are typical minimum requirements for a person's apartment. Now imagine all of that packed into fewer than 50 square feet in a portable structure that you can "build" in one day. That was what the third-year master of architecture students in UCLA's 3M futureLAB were challenged to create in just 10 weeks this past academic year.

How Julia Morgan finally won US architecture's highest honor
San Francisco Gate
Nobody in the Bay Area who cares about architecture needs to be convinced of Julia Morgan's lasting worth. Her early 20th century buildings - public and private, large and small - enrich the texture of communities across the region. But when it came time to make the case that a self-sufficient woman who died in 1957 deserved the most prestigious award in American architecture, her boosters left nothing to chance - which is why Morgan's grandniece on will soon receive the annual Gold Medal presented by the American Institute of Architects.

Is US housing construction stalling?
For Construction Pros
Declining single- and multifamily housing starts in May have been ringing some alarm bells since the government numbers were revealed recently. Most watchers know that one month doesn't make a trend, but so much conjecture about the severe winter slowing first-quarter construction growth has brought hyper focus on each new measure of industry production.

The Magazine of the American Institute of Architects
Titanium dioxide is finding its way into an increasing number of building materials, including concrete and paint, thanks to its ability to reduce smog using only sunlight.
