ICYMI: Meccano has rolled out a furniture line, the judges of the Sony World Photography Awards have shortlisted entries, the Boston Society of Architects has announced its Design Award winners, and the Boston blizzard is taking a toll on the city's buildings.
Quote of the Day: "You create your own space, which maybe is not the exact space, but it is more real than a wide-angle descriptive photograph. I often refer to the space you create when you read a book or have a dream. If you want them to know everything about the building, they have to go." —Hélène Binet, architectural photographer and recipient of the 2015 Excellence in Photography award from the Julius Shulman Institute.
