Peter Aaron photographed the Julian Street Library at Princeton University, designed by Joel Sanders Architect.  The project, a wired multimedia environment for students, has just won the 2012 Library Interior Design Competition.  The biennial award is jointly issued by the International Interior Design Association and the American Library Association in recognition of excellence in library design.  According to Dr. Susan E. Parker, a panel member for the competition, the winning entries “delivered fresh, imaginative, and comfortable spaces that have been designed, built, and furnished with a thoughtful understanding of the needs of the libraries’ constituent communities.”

The project will be featured at the ALA Annual Conference on June 24, 2012.  It will be published in upcoming issues of both Contract and American Libraries Magazine.  Keep an eye here for links to the project once the project is published.

There is a new Esto Gallery at Architect Magazine: Staircases.

From Alex Hoyt: This slideshow presents some of the most stunning examples of this declining art form, from the corkscrewing entryway to a famed Le Corbusier housing unit to the swooping steps of a Bernard Tschumi, FAIA, concert hall, all captured by Esto photographers.

The 10th Anniversary of 9/11 is an important event in our country’s  history. Esto photographers are working with architects and writers to create images for editorial coverage to commemorate the occasion.

Jeff Goldberg photographed The National 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan, designed by Michael Arad.

David Sundberg captured the 9/11 Memorial in Jersey City, NJ, designed by Frederic Schwartz Architects.

Both are powerful and moving tributes to those who lost their lives in the attacks.


David Sundberg was in the right place at the right time: Hoboken on a recent afternoon.
