Ned Cramer's Dialogue

  • Practicing What They Preach, Quietly

  • I Want To Go To Yale

  • Don't Forget to Brush

  • The Great Leap Backward

    Everybody has a doomsday scenario these days. Climate change. Peak oil. Unchecked immigration. Big government. Nuclear conflict.

  • Walter Netsch, Architect

  • Beltway Bull

    t takes a lot to make me angry. But a recent article in The Washington Post did more than that; it made my ears smoke. On May 27, the paper's culture critic, Philip Kennicott, reported that Congress is considering the appointment of a non-architect to the vacant post of Architect of the Capitol.

  • This Job Just Keeps Getting Better

    I love my job. Every issue of ARCHITECT gives me and my fellow editors the chance to challenge myths about the profession; promote noteworthy ideas, projects, and people; and, perhaps most gratifyingly, cook a few sacred cows.

  • Power To The People

    Did the nation's architects flinch in unison upon learning the results of the AIA survey of America's favorite architecture? It turns out that We, the People, and We, the Profession, aren't necessarily on the same page when it comes to defining quality in architecture.

  • The Neuroscience of Building Products

    Every issue of the Product Spec Guides will identify the latest trends and technologies in the development, manufacture, sales, and distribution of building products.

  • Calling All Technophiles

    Architecture's all-or-nothing affair with technology ended badly in the 1970s, when the promise of modernism began to smell like a threat. It's a shame, because despite the fact that counseling was in order—Brutalism, anyone?—architecture and technology can make good bedfellows.
