It’s been a busy winter. Results are coming in the form of boxes filled with newly printed stuff landing at our door (from Rochester, in this case).
Look familiar? If you know the Cornell University campus, you’ll recognize the Foundry building on our cover of the spring 2009 issue of the AAP newsletter. Workers are laying down the stone paving for University Avenue — in 1909. Turn the page, and we mirrored that view with an identical one, showing OMA‘s rendering of Milstein Hall one hundred years later. It’s almost the same perspective — a fortuitous pairing that lends the controversial site a larger historical context.
