National Design Awards and the New York Waterfront


I have been looking at this image from SHoP’s submission for quite some time without really understanding what the firm is proposing.

National Design Awards + Objectified


Gary Hustwit’s latest film, Objectified is playing at the IFC downtown for a limited run. Hustwit himself is seemingly traveling along with the film to nearly fifty venues between now and mid-summer, so both he and the film are likely coming to a venue near you if you happen not to be in New York

National Design Awards and the 2008 Presidential Election


Perceptive Pixel’s Magic Wall played a central role in CNN’s rather exuberant coverage of President Barack Obama’s press conference last week on the occasion of his 100th day in office. The press conference was streamed on the White House’s YouTube channel, marking the first time the White House had ever livestreamed a news event.
