Iconic Buildings: TWA Terminal, New York - Tulip chair creator Eero Saarinen's exercise in the fluid line, NY's TWA Terminal, is a stunning yet functional building that anticipated the needs of future travellers.

Green spaces go underground
What if the subterranean world was not only inhabitable, but life-giving and restorative.

Making NYC denser and greener - Jeffrey Shumaker has a leading role in reducing the carbon footprint of New York City. The plans there are to increase the population of New York by one million, but reduce the overall carbon footprint by 30 percent. Where will these extra one million people live, and how can a city as dense as NYC become denser, yet more sustainable?

i-heart-ny-tm - By now, the story is well known. A man sits in the backseat of a cab, sketching on a notepad as night falls over a crumbling city. He scribbles the letter I. He draws a heart. And then an N, and then a Y. Right away he knows he’s got something. This is it, he thinks. This is the campaign. The man was a designer named Milton Glaser. The city was New York. The year was 1977.

At the Federal Hall National Memorial on Wall Street, George Washington took the oath of office as the first President, and this site was home to the first Congress, Supreme Court, and Executive Branch offices. The current structure, a Customs House, later served as part of the US Sub-Treasury. Now, the building serves as a museum and memorial to our first President and the beginnings of the United States of America.
