Clásicos de Arquitectura: Instituto de Arte Munson-Williams-Proctor (MWPAI) / Philip Johnson

archiWEB 3.0 - July 16, 2014 - 13:00

© Ezra Stoller/Esto

El Instituto de Artes Munson-Williams-Proctor es una obra maestra moderna del año 1960 y el precedente revolucionario del diseño del museo americano. Ubicado en Utica, Nueva York, fue el primero de muchos  equipamientos culturales  diseñados por Philip Johnson. También conocido como el Museo de Arte, la estructura representa un punto de inflexión estilística en la carrera de Johnson, que marca el final de su lealtad hacia el Estilo Internacional y el inicio de su experimentación con el Neoclasicismo.

archiWEB 3.0 - July 16, 2014 - 12:00

It’s no secret that California is in the midst of a devastating drought, but a new report is putting actual numbers on the problem, and the results are not good. This year alone, California stands to lose over 17,000 jobs and $2.2 billion dollars in revenue because of the water shortage. And while mother nature is partially responsible, the report reveals that local governments and farmers carry more than just a little of the blame.
