As it turns out, one of Kundig&rsquo;s newest construction, dubbed the Flagg Mountain Hut, protrudes into the viewshed of a pristine ridge in the valley... the community is not happy with the project and they&rsquo;ve launched a campaign asking the owners to move the hut.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/69015292/architect-jim-olson-of-olson-kundig-architects-to-design-museum-of-art Architect Jim Olson, of Olson Kundig Architects, to design Museum of Art Archinect 2013-03-07T20:21:00-05:00 >2013-03-11T18:33:19-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/56/56521e8203bd07260f12c24180a74a15.jpg" width="300" height="355" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The award-winning firm of world renowned Seattle architect Jim Olson has been selected to design the new Museum of Art at Washington State University.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/47198463/national-mall-design-competition-selects-the-three-winning-teams National Mall Design Competition Selects the Three Winning Teams Alexander Walter 2012-05-03T19:28:00-04:00 >2012-05-04T07:52:30-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/cp/cpef6thwr914ydb7.jpg" width="514" height="355" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Today the Trust for the National Mall announced the three winning teams of the National Mall Design Competition.

He is embedded in the rock like something not yet fully born, suited and stern, rising from its roughly chiseled surface. His face is uncompromising, determined, his eyes fixed in the distance, not far from where Jefferson stands across the water. But kitsch here strains at the limits of resemblance: Is this the Dr. King of the &ldquo;I Have a Dream&rdquo; speech?

DC is uniquely blessed with such incredible public museums that private museums often have to compete, and while they often do it incredibly well, it&rsquo;s tough to see one move from a free model to one supported by admission fees. The National Building Museum announced today that by the end of the month they will be charging an $8 fee for adults, and a $5 fee for children, students, and seniors.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
