But each incarnation raises the question: how do we architecturally define privacy in the 21st century?</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149944930/how-4-us-cities-are-applying-architectural-solutions-to-homelessness How 4 US cities are applying architectural solutions to homelessness Julia Ingalls 2016-05-23T18:29:00-04:00 >2016-05-29T23:24:52-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/91/91bgehprdw8q9rbq.jpg" width="650" height="433" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Housing First, a federal policy for ending chronic <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/314845/homelessness" target="_blank">homelessness</a> that grew out of initiatives in Los Angeles and New York in the late 1980s and early 1990s, provides what appears to be the most effective solution to homelessness in the United States: actually housing people. Since implementing Housing First programs in Utah&nbsp;in 2005, Salt Lake City reported up to a 91% reduction in their rate of the chronically homeless.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149938311/the-internship-test-or-why-even-become-an-architect-at-all The internship test or: why even become an architect at all?

Exploited labor or necessary rite-of-passage? It&rsquo;s a debate that&rsquo;s been raging for decades almost exclusively through this binary, even as the context in which it&rsquo;s been waged has transformed considerably. While certain practices have moved to institute fair compensation into their intern programs, life for many architecture interns today remains a struggle.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/149910526/meow-parlour-is-a-modern-hangout-for-nyc-s-adoptable-cats Meow Parlour is a modern hangout for NYC's adoptable cats Alexis Petrunia 2016-03-14T15:58:00-04:00 >2016-04-02T17:20:52-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/vw/vwxflmgvxmtypfm6.jpg" width="650" height="433" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Looking out inquisitively&nbsp;onto a busy New York City avenue, a white and grey cat perches on a counter that is supported by a base that fittingly reads&nbsp;<em>M E O W </em>in bold<em>. </em>She soaks in warm light that beams through a floor-to-ceiling window, while dozens of other felines play and lounge throughout the rest of their 800sf domain. These cats are temporary residents at&nbsp;<em>Meow Parlour</em>, a modest venue that allows adoptable cats and city-goers a chance to interact within a comfortable &ndash; and refreshingly upbeat &ndash; environment.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/145736562/liz-diller-gets-high-discussing-the-high-line-s-development-with-christopher-hawthorne Liz Diller gets high: discussing The High Line's development with Christopher Hawthorne Julia Ingalls 2016-02-19T18:07:00-05:00 >2016-02-24T13:02:49-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/5p/5pw0ergqh76bgomn.jpg" width="650" height="488" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Few would have predicted that a &ldquo;used-condom-strewn&rdquo; elevated railway line running through what used to be seedy Chelsea would become one of New York City&rsquo;s biggest cultural attractions. And yet, according to Elizabeth Diller in conversation with <em>Los Angeles Times</em>&nbsp;architecture critic&nbsp;Christopher Hawthorne at LAX Art on February 16, last year over seven million people walked Diller, Scofidio + Renfro&rsquo;s <a href="http://archinect.com/news/tag/2191/high-line" target="_blank">High Line</a>. That&rsquo;s about four million more than attended MoMA or even all of the Yankees games, making The High Line not just a renovated railway, but a literal cultural bridge between the pedestrian and the aesthetic realms.</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/136826657/imagine-that-review-of-imaginary-apparatus-new-york-city-and-its-mediated-representation Imagine that: review of “Imaginary Apparatus: New York City and Its Mediated Representation” Julia Ingalls 2015-09-17T14:31:00-04:00 >2015-09-23T06:37:04-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/s7/s7iwankf5zmgr9fs.jpg" width="650" height="980" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Like an infrastructural Ouija board planchette, the Foucaultian &ldquo;apparatus&rdquo; isn&rsquo;t exactly a device, but rather the effect of a multiplicity of participants. Each of these participants, whether they are the media, philosophical traditions, physical objects or even legal proceedings, exert a complex and nuanced force on the other, helping to control the method by which reality is shaped.&nbsp;</p> http://archinect.com/features/article/103338066/the-deans-list-mark-wigley-of-columbia-university-s-gsapp The Deans List: Mark Wigley of Columbia University's GSAPP Amelia Taylor-Hochberg 2014-07-07T14:38:00-04:00 >2014-07-14T19:24:38-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/rb/rbo95eg7lvxrdfwb.jpg" width="650" height="528" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>The&nbsp;<a href="http://archinect.com/features/tag/378110/deans-list" target="_blank"><strong>Deans List</strong></a>&nbsp;is an interview series with the leaders of architecture schools, worldwide.
