AN is excited to share the digital version of our March/April 2023 issue with you. The issue’s “seriously playful” features dive into three subjects: Bill Millard explores the growing interest in urban casinos; Allyn West visits two buildings by HASTINGS renovated for songwriting and publishing along Nashville’s Music Row; and in Colorado Timothy A. Schuler chronicles a new visitor for Pikes Peak by GWWO Architects. The issue’s Focus section explores wellness through products and four projects: Salmela Architect expands a restaurant of its own design into a retreat along Lake Superior; Alda Ly Architecture delivers two new locations for Tia, a women’s healthcare provider, in New York and Brooklyn, respectively; and Wheeler Kearns Architects stacks a set of programs into a new facility for LGBTQ youth in Chicago. Up front, you’ll find news about architects spatializing reproductive justice, a review of OFFPOLLINN’s Reggio School in Madrid, and a text about O’Neill McVoy Architects’ Bronx Children’s Museum. At the end, Tayfun Kahraman writes from Turkey about the widespread preventable devastation after recent earthquakes.
