Weitz Center for Creativity in Northfield, Minnesota by MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Article source: MSR (Meyer, Scherer, & Rockcastle)

From its earliest inception, Carleton College’s Weitz Center for Creativity was imagined as much more than an arts building. While it does create much-needed new exhibit and performance spaces, the Weitz Center’s true mission is to serve as a working laboratory for creativity—not only in the arts, but across the entire curriculum. It positions the College as a national leader in arts programs by creating an environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, collaborative working skills, and cross-cultural exploration. An adaptive reuse of and addition to a former middle school, the new Weitz Center for Creativity houses the departments of studio arts, dance and theater, and cinema and media studies.

Cascades of Lights in San Jose, Costa Rica by Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Saturday, November 1st, 2014

Article source: Benjamin Garcia Saxe

Framing and fading the view become guidelines for the imagination; where an escape from the city is built and transported into a fictional world that is dancing with the wind, and light plays absorbed by its threads that catch between their frames a changing landscape.
