Join Caterina Roiatti and Robert Traboscia at the Center for Architecture on July 22nd at 6.30

When: 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM FRIDAY, JULY 22

Where: At The Center   

Join us for our first Summer in the City evening roundtable discussion series about design relationships, starting with architect couples. Architect Couples was inspired by the joint Gold Medal awarded to Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi, following a widely-published petition. As a result, the AIANY Architecture Dialogue Committee began thinking about work/life balance and the struggle architects face to find their design voice while developing long-term relationships. Couples in all stages of their careers build practices and build families. Panel participants will discuss the challenges they faced as designers and couples.

Speakers:
Caterina Roiatti, AIA, and Robert Traboscia, TRA Studio
Hayes Slade, AIA, and James Slade, FAIA, Slade Architecture
Anna Torriani, AIA, and Lorenzo Pagnamenta, AIA, APT Architecture

Moderator: Hana Kassem, AIA, Director, KPF

Cocktail designed by: Eben Klemm

Organized by: AIANY Architecture Dialogue Committee and CultureNow

Price: One drink included: $15 for members; $20 for non-members

 Lots of progress at 173 West Broadway this week. The roof deck is complete (just in time for unseasonably warm March afternoons), the storefront windows and elevator cab are being installed, and the kitchens are nearing completion.

Initial 3D scan results are in!

We got our first look at the results of the 3D scans. Even without the color, its clear that much of the interior and exterior details have been captured.

Check out the screenshot slideshow:

Once all the scans are combined, we will be able to see the full building with color.

Townhouses with Tunnels becoming fashionable

61st Street Townhouse, designed by TRA Studio

As TRA's 61st Street Townhouse construction continues, the New York Post reported that Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes purchased a West Village townhouse with a subterranean tunnel.

While uncommon, it is not impossible to find townhouses in New York City that have coach house in the rear yard. These small structures are often hidden from the street, surrounded by the buildings that have popped up over the last century.

It can be a design challenge to utilize these historic spaces, while also complying with modern building and fire codes. By building a cellar tunnel at the 61st Street project, the design was able to retain the courtyard, while connecting the two structures.

As property values climb in NYC, designers will continue to find ways to make every square foot count.

Laser scanning begins on Fonthill Castle, Bronx

The Fonhill Castle renovation project is underway as the existing conditions are mapped and scanned with a precise laser. TRA will be able to use the scan to create an accurate, detailed computer model of the whole building.

Fonthill Castle is located on the Hudson River on the campus of the College of Mount St. Vincent in the Bronx, NYC.

It took two days of scanning to completely capture the interior and exterior of the castle.

The laser uses the white spheres to orient itself and help combine scans from multiple locations.
