I interviewed novelist Sol Yurick back in March 2009. Rather than publish the interview on BLDGBLOG as I should have, however, I thought I'd try to find a place for it elsewhere, and began pitching it to a few design magazines. Yurick, after all, was the author of The Warriors—later turned into the cult classic film of the same name, in which New York City is transformed into a ruined staging ground for elaborately costumed gangs—and he was a familiar enough figure amidst a particular crowd of underground readers and independent press aficionados, those of us who might gravitate more toward Autonomedia pamphlets, for example, where you'd find Yurick's strange and prescient Metatron: The Recording Angel, than anything on the bestseller list.
No. 572 - 2012.1205 The Corruption of Wood by Kevin Matthews Trees are fundamental to urban landscapes and natural ecosystems. Wood from trees is a fundamental material for architecture.

Until recently, one had to choose whether to ask for electricity from solar panels or heat from solar-thermal panels, but you couldn’t have it both ways. Now, thanks to a team of researchers from Boston College and MIT, you can. As reported in the Nature Materials journal, engineers have worked out a way to trap heat in a flat panel so as to help you enjoy heat and electricity at the same time. What hindered researchers to come up with this until now was the lack of right materials – so far none of those used had the properties to produce enough electric power. So how did they overcome this shortage? Read the rest of this entry » Eco Trees - alternative energy, electric cars, solar power, wind power

We can only wish. Yesterday a coworker sent me a link to this New York Observer article describing mayor Bloomber’s desire for 10 additional buildings by Frank Gehry by the end of his term.Â Bloomberg is out of office in two years. By the mayor’s own estimation, that means Gehry has 70 days to crank out each project – which we know isn’t really how things work, but is still a crazy thing to think about. But even crazier, I’d argue, is the idea of 10 more buildings by America’s favorite “hey, I know that guy” starchitect, pseudo-commissioned by the mayor. It’s strange. Now it would be easy to take the hater route and complain about how NYC would look like a pile ofÂ misshapen, curvy metal panels – but that’s getting tired.
