For R.

Cheap, sturdy, and easily to install, cast-iron fa&ccedil;ades were used to dress up older industrial buildings and attract new tenants. The material was pliable yet durable, and could be easily cast into ornate forms, which were often informed by classical Italian and French designs with an American twist. More than just an aesthetic embellishment, replacing the fa&ccedil;ade dramatically changed the experience of the interior, allowing for enlarged windows and higher ceilings.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149976858/faulders-studio-s-wynwood-facade-highlights-street-art-in-miami-s-dynamic-parking-structure-scene Faulders Studio's Wynwood Facade Highlights Street Art in Miami's Dynamic Parking Structure Scene Julia Ingalls 2016-11-10T13:59:00-05:00 >2016-11-27T21:20:22-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/p6/p6cb732b54kucuw5.jpg" width="650" height="443" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>An eight-story parking garage and mixed-use office building becomes an ever-changing reflection of its street art surroundings with Faulders Studio's modifiable Wynwood Facade.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149977571/screen-print-47-fresh-meat-s-of-the-city-from-uic Screen/Print #47: Fresh Meat's 'Of the City', from UIC Nicholas Korody 2016-11-09T12:05:00-05:00 >2016-11-28T09:56:15-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/mz/mzs4ll6x22u7vcn5.jpg" width="650" height="809" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Individuality is a prized commodity. &ldquo;Dare to be different,&rdquo; we&rsquo;re told. &ldquo;To thine own self be true,&rdquo; inspirational posters implore, butchering a quotation from <em>Hamlet</em> that originally implied multiple, different meanings.
