Paul Felder – The Architectural Studio

The prospect of designing a building comes with infinite possibilities, and while this is what makes Paul Felder’s job fun, he believes it can also be a trap. “As an architect, you must know when to stop designing,” he says. “I’m not looking to push people out of their comfort zone or attempting to see […]

The phoenix-from-the-ashes analogy is much overused, but it still comes to mind when one strolls through the Hunt Valley Towne Centre in northern Baltimore County. Residents of sufficient longevity will remember that this now vibrant and uplifting outdoor shopping and lifestyle area was once the site of the Hunt Valley Mall that, like so many […]

Derrick C.W. Childs has his hands full—literally—on a late May day, handling an array of tools as well as a cellphone during a lively interview from a construction site in Cleveland. But that’s business as usual for this high-spirited man whose work ethic and Christian faith run deep. And, as if heaven-sent, business is booming […]

Seafront condominiums don’t often win plaudits for creativity. Functionality, for sure; after all, they tend to be big-box, even bland buildings packing in as many units as possible, each with pricy views of the ocean. Then again, few of those buildings were designed by the late Charles Moore. For it was Moore who designed a […]

Hendrick Inc.

It may be a building’s exterior that gives that all-important first—some say, lasting—impression, but the interior is equally as important. It’s where people spend a large portion of their day. When that building is part of the hospitality industry, it had better seem hospitable. That means that as business practices, employers and employees evolve, they […]

Focus Design Builders

Paul Eitel takes pride in building, whether it’s a physical structure or his children’s character. It just better stand the test of time and whatever storms—literal or metaphorical—may arise. Just back from the Republic of Georgia, where his 11-year-old son, Hayden, joined him in relief efforts on behalf of refugees from some of the world’s […]

Bialosky Cleveland

When Bialosky Cleveland designed its new office, the 67-year-old multidisciplinary design firm had an opportunity to practice what it preaches, “building more with less.” Housed on one floor of a former automobile manufacturing facility in midtown Cleveland, the loft-like design studios embrace a minimalist, industrial aesthetic that is true to the building’s original character. By […]

MacLachlan Cornelius & Filoni Inc.

In 1859, amidst acres of 400-year-old trees in what is now the Glen Helen Nature Preserve in Yellow Springs, Ohio, Antioch College’s first president, Horace Mann, addressed the graduating class with these infamous words: “Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for humanity.” Not unsurprisingly, this expectation has bred a campus culture […]

Garmann/Miller & Associates

While a town square on a Sunday afternoon is a good place to observe foot traffic, a school is a better place to take the pulse of a community. “Think of all the extracurricular activities, the band, athletics. It’s a place that normally has a big impact to the people around it,” says the CEO […]

Atkin Olshin Schade Architects

By any measure, the late Louis Kahn (1901-1974) was among America’s most prominent architects, but that doesn’t mean the eccentric Philadelphian was infallible in every project he undertook. The Richards Medical Research Laboratory he designed for the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1950s may have met every aesthetic test, even scoring National Historic Landmark […]
