Making Marks

Making Marks: Architects' Sketchbook - The Creative Process
Will Jones
Thames & Hudson, March 2019

Hardcover | 12 x 9 inches | 320 pages | 900+ illustrations | English | ISBN: 978-0500021316 | $50.00

Publisher Description:
Making Marks follows up on the highly successful Architects’ Sketchbooks, which presented, for the first time, the rich breadth of sketches being created by contemporary architects following the digital revolution. Taking a post-digital perspective, the sixty renowned architects whose work is collected here show how drawing and new forms of manual presentation have been refined since the reawakening of this basic technique. Notepads, stacks of paper, pencils and fine-point pens are as present in the architect’s studio as phalanxes of screens. Revealing why and how hand-drawing still matters, this global survey presents the freehand drawings, vibrant watercolours and abstract impressions of rising talents and well-known names, including Jun Igarashi and Brian MacKay-Lyons. Will Jones’s introduction reviews the importance of the physical sketch and its vital part in the architect’s creative process.

Water Filters for Well Water

Water is a commodity that we take for granted. We are lucky in the USA to have plenty of water for domestic use; other countries in the world are not so lucky. You probably don’t think about where your water comes from if you live in a city or town, but what if you live somewhere further afield? This article is about filtering water that comes out of a well, so if you’re reading this, you probably live somewhere that uses a well for water supply.

It could be a small village or town, or you may be on a remote farm or ranch, but if you use a well, don’t think you’re living in the past: many thousands of homes in the USA are effectively off the grid where water supply is concerned, and will have use a well for many years, perhaps even decades.

Why are we suggesting that you need a water filter for your well water? If you think about it, things make sense. The water in your well has come from deep underground. It may have been standing there for a long time, and it may be exposed to the elements. In many ways, well water may actually  be more pure than that which comes out of a faucet in the city, but it is still sensible to filter it before use.

What Filter Should I Use?

New York City’s long awaited Hudson Yards has finally opened its doors to the public for the first time. Built on Midtown Manhattan’s West Side, the project is New York’s largest development to date and the United States’ largest private real estate development, covering almost 14 acres of land (more than 56,000 sqm) with polished residential towers, offices, plazas, gardens, shopping centers, and restaurants, all designed by some of the world’s most iconic architects.
