The NY Daily News has an article on Karl Fischer’s new building at 101 Bedford Avenue, across from McCarren Park, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.

The new building fits into the neighborhood context, and provides myriad amenities and indulgences within the building.

The full article, with several of Francis’ photographs is at the NY Daily News.


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.

Also, there are more images at the DUST website.

After digging out from Nemo, and working at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Albert Vecerka perched atop an immense boulder for this shot.

Albert was in Tuxedo Park, New York to photograph the house below him, designed by Weiss Manfredi.  He initially photographed the house in the fall of 2011, but had to wait until this winter for the snow shots.

Albert had been on this boulder on his previous trip to the site. He and his assistant were guessing how close to the edge he could go without falling – luckily he stayed on the rock!

Francis’ work was recently profiled on the blog Mix and Chic.  This image of a New York apartment is a dramatic counterpoint to his photographs from the Middle East.  We’ll post more of the work from Dubai soon.  Keep checking back!

The Wall Street Journal Online has an article called Regional Flair describing outstanding examples of regional architecture, where the emphasis is on homes that speak to their local surroundings.  Jeff Goldberg’s photograph of Rick Joy’s Desert Nomad house headlines the slideshow.

Fireplaces is the newest Esto Gallery at Architect Magazine.

Alex Hoyt writes: In this gallery we present the high altars of 13 homes, ranging from the massive hearth of Taliesin West to a discreet Saarinen cubbyhole, from a Philip Johnson–designed wood stove to Thomas Jefferson’s Rumford fireplace at Monticello—all captured by Esto photographers.

The image above is a Hariri and Hariri house in Virginia photographed by Jeff Goldberg.

The other day we shared information about the new Esto Gallery on the Architect website featuring Ezra Stoller’s 1941 photographs of the A. Conger Goodyear house by Edward Durrell Stone.

Following that post, David Sundberg reminded us of his more recent photographs of that house.

In 2001, David, in conjunction with the World Monuments Fund, photographed the house in a state of near-total disrepair.  These images, coupled with those from 1941, helped garner attention for house.  In 2002 it was placed on the WMF list of endangered properties. Saved from destruction by temporary funding from the Barnett Newman Foundation, the Fund to purchased the property in 2005.  Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the house has changed hands several times in the past six years.  Recently, it was purchased by real estate developer and art collector, Aby Rosen.

We look forward to the renovations of this house and hope to be able to continue chronicling its evolution.

There is a new Esto Gallery on the Architect Website.

Ezra Stoller’s 1941 images of the A. Conger Goodyear house show this early modern house by Edward Durrell Stone.  Described by critic Paul Goldberger as “one of the most important houses built in the United States between the two world wars”, the house was built by A. Conger Goodyear, the founder of the Museum of Modern Art.  Narrowly saved from destruction by the efforts of the Barnett Newman Foundation and the World Monuments Fund, the house is now in private hands.
