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…

UK’s College of Arts and Sciences will lay off at least 30 staffers in the next few weeks to solve a $4 million deficit in the fiscal year that ends June 30. The shortage has nothing to do with upcoming state budget cuts, official said. Instead, it happened when contracts from foreign governments — including Saudi Arabia, Oman, Brazil and Ecuador — to teach their students English as a second language dried up unexpectedly. Lisa Wilson, associate provost for finance and operations, said that unlike most federal grants, the contract money was not…

Roman Architecture in Britain

The ideal Roman city plan was based on a regular grid of streets, dividing up square building plots or insulae . In the central insula was the forum, or market square – with a basilica, or great hall, running the length of one side of the square, and the council chamber and civic offices adjoining it. In forts like Chesters and Housesteads on Hadrian’s Wall, the central headquarters building was a small-scale version of the civic forum-basilica. Here, soldiers collected or banked their pay, the administration of the unit was carried out, and the…

Based at University College London, the school has now headed the newspaper’s league for three years in a row. Last month the Bartlett also came top of this year’s AJ100 poll of the best architecture school. The University of Greenwich props up the bottom of the league, despite attracting a number of Bartlett staff back in 2011 including its ex-professor and vice dean Neil Spiller. The top ten list remains largely the same as last year, with just two schools, Liverpool and Northumbria, dropping out, to be replaced by Oxford Brookes and Manchester…
