July/August 2019: Developer
ETs are taking over New York! No, we’re not talking about Alf and the like—we mean the Excessively Talls, the new breed of skyscraper sprouting up around the city. Our features this month look at ETs and other issues in real estate development from across the country, including San Diego’s ambitious plans marking the city’s 250th anniversary.
Other stories look at new construction technologies being developed for the controversial U.S.–Mexico border wall project, Allied Works’ new Portland Timbers stadium, a roundup of the fall’s architecture and design biennials, and an overview of DS+R’s impact on New York City. Robert Somol discusses the legacy of Stanley Tigerman, and I. M. Pei’s passing is marked. All things glass come alive in the special products section, and Virgil Abloh, SO – IL, and a jazzy ’70s supper club make their mark.
