ARCHITECTURE IN CHICAGO

Carson recently returned from a trip to Chicago with the Wentworth Architecture Club. He braved the Windy City's early March cold to take in all of the architectural delights. His favorite building, Marina City, was designed by Bertrand Goldberg, who also designed the tower at Brigham and Women's Hospital

Marbling

On a recent trip up Dorset, Vermont, Kaki noticed that the sidewalks are paved with Vermont white marble.

Old Man Winter

Mark visited the polder landscape of northwest Germany (Friesland) near the North Sea, which is very similar to the Dutch landscape of farm fields and windmills, all below sea level. On Easter-eve he joined family friends for their annual bonfire that burns away the winter cold and brush cleared from the fields, to usher in spring. This amazing German tradition is widely celebrated, and fires were visible in every direction from our spot on the Pfahldeich (pile-dike, built in the 1600s).

Spring Chickens

It’s spring and Mary’s chickens are in heavy production! Today was the first distribution day at KMDG.

Pedestrian Patterning

Mosaic paving is used in towns across the Azores on sidewalks and plazas.  The black stones are native to the islands, and islanders exchanged them for the white stones from mainland Portugal.
