Park Hill Flats

A bridge too far: Jason, next to the neon version of his original message. Photograph: Murdo Macleod for the Observer One spring day in 2001 a tall man walked into Sheffield’s Park Hill flats and along a street in the sky. He strode past the brutalist flanks, out on to the footbridge. He thought: this’ll do. Jason didn’t look down; he gets vertigo and he was 13 storeys up. He leaned over in his yellow Puffa jacket and sprayed her name. “Clare” came out haphazardly and “Middleton” hit the ledge. He planned to take her to the Roxy on the facing hill…

London style House

London plays home to an incredible and eclectic range of architectural styles, formed as the city grew up – its diverse social and cultural evolution reflected in the architectural patterns and designs you can see today. London developed over the years in a much more ad hoc style than many other major cities, both in the UK and the World, creating a sort of mishmash of building styles, materials and shapes. Many of these styles are reflections of monarchic periods, and demonstrate the fashions, technological trends, and social organisation of the…

Traditional Irish House

Traditional Irish House

The Washington Square Harp and Shamrock Orchestra at New York University is led by Professor Mick Moloney. The Orchestra plays traditional Irish music with a focus on older tunes, tunes with New York City history, and tunes with fun stories attached. Members learn by ear from Prof. Mick Moloney, as well as NYU Ethnomusicology PhD candidates and other experienced musicians. The orchestra name is reminiscent of Irish-American dance bands of the early 1900s, such as Dan Sullivan s Shamrock Band, or Pat Roche s Harp and Shamrock Orchestra, or even Erin…

Best Modern Architecture

When you hail from one of the magnificent capital cities of New England, such as Boston or, in my case, Providence, Rhode Island, it’s sometimes a little hard to admit that there are worthy architectural landmarks anywhere else. But on a recent trip to Raleigh, North Carolina, I discovered what might be one of America s greatest examples of modern architecture: Dorton Arena, the former livestock pavilion at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds. Another view of Dorton Arena. William Morgan Although cattle-judging long ago moved to new quarters, Dorton…

Best Architectural Websites

… or as I call them, my “current favorite websites”, but let’s not split hairs. After exhaustive research ( a.k.a. my internet explorer history ) and peer feedback (I sent some emails, reviewed suggestions in the comment area, and asked the people in my office) I have created the definitive listing of the Best Architectural Websites in the World for 2015. I will admit that this list is completely biased because what I like might not be what you like (even though it should be, let’s be honest). I don’t read as many websites as I once did so this…

One of the most baffling questions facing a generation of physicists is what happens to the information about the physical state of things that are swallowed up by black holes? Is it destroyed, as our understanding of general relativity would predict? If so, that would violate the laws of quantum mechanics. Today at the Hawking Radiation conference, Hawking presented his latest idea about how this paradox can be solved — that is, how information is preserved even if it s sucked into a black hole. Hawking is in town for the weeklong conference, which…

The London school was also rated second best place to study architecture in the world in a recent ranking by higher education data specialists QS.
