Albert Vecerka’s photographs of the new Krishna P. Singh Center for Nanotechnology at the University of Pennsylvania, designed by Weiss/Manfredi, are featured in the November 2013 issue of Architectural Record.  In the article,  Joann Gonchar writes, “At Singh, Manfredi and Weiss have thoroughly melded landscape and building, integrating the project into Penn’s campus, and making it difficult to tell where nature ends and architecture begins.”

Albert’s images also appear in a piece in Architecture, where the lead-in reads: Weiss/Manfredi turns the strict requirements for a nanotech lab on a dense urban campus into forward-facing design features.  The full article, including more photographs is here.

There is also an earlier post about the building, and one that shows Albert on the job.

The Tucson Getaway House, designed by DUST is published in Record Houses, the April 2013 issue of Architectural Record. The house, located in the mountains outside Tucson, is made of rammed earth and affords a subtle, yet deliberate, connection to the surrounding desert.  Jeff Goldberg photographed the project for the architects,  DUST, a new design/build office in Tucson led by Cade Hayes and Jesus Robles.

The full article on the house is at Architectural Record, where there is also a slideshow of the project that helps to fully describe the building.

William Morgan reviews Ezra Stoller Photographer in the January Issue of Architectural Record.  Morgan writes that while Stoller and Korab were “once regarded as commercial adjuncts to the profession, they are now subjects of monographs that argue for their acceptance as artists in their own right.”

He continues that “modernism’s bold unadorned forms lent themselves to the strong compositions Stoller strove for in his photos [and that the] photos of the Guggenheim, Manufacturers Trust, or the Glass House have become indivisible from the buildings themselves.

The full review is at Architectural Record.
