Jeff Goldberg’s photographs of the Masonica Amphitheater appear in the newest issue of Metropolis Magazine.
Metropolis Magazine published the contents of its October 2012 issue online this week–with the cover headline of “Brave New City“– with urban and rural examples of design for the public good. The first of several pieces is “Spirited Revival,” reported by John Cary. It’s the story of the amphitheater created by the design/buildLAB within Virginia Tech’s School of Architecture & Design. The project brings new energy to a struggling rail town in rural Virginia.
Jeff Goldberg’s photographs appear in the newest issue of Metropolis Magazine.
There are several earlier EstoNews posts about the Virginia Tech design/build LAB: the Coventry Farmer’s Market and the Masonic Amphitheater, both completed and under construction.
And, more images of these projects at EstoStock.
In addition to the still images, Jeff made a video of the Amphitheater project that is at Vimeo.
Anton Grassl’s images of the Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation at Massachusetts General Hospital appear in the most issue of Harvard Magazine.
The building by Leers Weinzapfel is described, aptly, as a treasure of a new museum. The full article is here.
Earlier EstoNews posts about the museum which include more of Anton’s photographs are here, and his video of the museum is here.
The full catalog of Anton’s photographs of this project is at EstoStock.
Dignifying Design, an article in the NY Times by John Cary and Courtney Martin, describes the emerging field of public interest design. This burgeoning field exists at the intersection of design and service and hinges on the belief
that everybody deserves good design, whether in a prescription bottle label that people can more easily read and understand, a beautiful pocket park to help a city breathe or a less stressful intake experience at the emergency room. Dignity may be to the burgeoning field of public-interest design as justice is to the more established public-interest law.
Jeff Goldberg’s photograph of the Masonic Amphitheater appears in the accompanying slideshow. The Amphitheater was designed and built by the design/buildLAB at Virginia Tech, as an element of a community revitalization effort.

The American Awards have been posted on the Chicago Athenaeum’s web site.
Anton Grassl photographed two projects that won Awards:
The University of Connecticut, West Classroom Building by Leers Weinzapfel Associates Architects and
The Chazen Museum by Machado and Silvetti.
The complete collection of Anton’s images, both of UConn and of The Chazen Museum, can be seen at EstoStock.
There are earlier EstoNews post about the UConn Classroom building and about The Chazen. There is also a short video about the curtains at The Chazen.
Also, Anton’s most recent portfolio is online.
David Sundberg’s photographs The Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park appear in ArchDaily. The project, designed by Cook + Fox Architects, is the first commercial high-rise to achieve LEED Platinum certification. Irina Vinnitskaya writes that “the design and high performance of this building is intended to set a new standard for commercial construction and for the office-work environment. By focusing on ways to emphasize daylight, fresh air and a connection to the outdoors, the architects redefine the parameters of the skyscraper as more than a glass box.”
The entire article and more of David’s images are at ArchDaily.
David also worked on this video of the project with Ryan Browne of Cook+Fox:

Anton Grassl has a new video of the Bernard M. Gordon Tribute to Engineering Leadership Gateway at Northwestern University by Selbert Perkins Design.
The project honor’s Mr. Gordon’s contributions to society and his impact on the students at Northwestern.
More of Anton’s still photography of the gateway are at EstoStock.

David Sundberg lives in Lower Manhattan and over the last few years the view from his apartment has changed. He’s been watching One World Trade Center fill the 9/11 hole in the sky. Originally called The Freedom Tower, the new building, designed by SOM, is a major addition to the skyline.
Take a look at this gallery of David’s One World Trade Center images. Some were taken from around the city and others from his kitchen window. The selection will be updated as new photographs become available so you may want to bookmark the gallery.
James Armstrong Richardson International Airport Terminal from Esto on Vimeo.
Jeff Goldberg recently photographed the new James Armstrong Richardson Airport in Winnipeg. He was on assignment for the architects, Pelli Clarke Pelli. As Jeff studied the site and made the still photographs, he was also planning this video which complements the other photographs and further describes the airport.
In Winnipeg Jeff also made a series of stills and video clips of Manitoba Hydro, the high-rise commercial building designed by KPMB. Keep an eye out for those images in the near future.

We are glad to see that ArchDaily has posted the Esto Video Reel.
Architectural photography combines journalism, craftsmanship and art. Now with video, the Esto photographers expand their experience in documenting architecture to include motion and the passage of time. With carefully considered points of view, their footage explains the richness and variety of inhabited spaces and of buildings in context.
Regardless of the medium, the photographer’s responsibility remains unchanged: to capture and convey the nature of architecture. We consider video a complement to still photography. The view may pan over a scene; there may be movement within the frame itself. The images flow in a lively sequence that seems to match our hurried world.
Conventional photographs allow the viewer to explore each image. In a glance, one can see the basic content. Then, with more time, one can identify various layers of meaning. Further investigation can reveal what’s beneath the surface. The viewer realizes that the image is a selected piece of reality: one sees what’s in front of the lens and can infer what’s been omitted.
The new Esto reel includes clips by Jeff Goldberg, David Sundberg and Albert Vecerka. There are time-lapse elements and video footage shot from the ground, from neighboring buildings and from the air. The reel was prepared by Frederick King of Fountainhead Transmedia.
