Collaborative artists&nbsp;Frances Nelson and Bradly Gunn seek to mark the unmarked by creating a series &ldquo;thresholds&rdquo; to walk under&nbsp;and pass through, as an acknowledgement of the final resting place of Kent&rsquo;s founding pioneers.&nbsp;</p> <p> THRESHOLDS is generously supported by 4Culture&rsquo;s Site Specific Program and the University of&nbsp;Washington&rsquo;s College of Built Environment&rsquo;s Digital Fabrication Lab, with additional support from McLendon&nbsp;Hardware, Dunn Lumber and Miller Paint Co.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/68553691/the-dead-architects-society The Dead Architects Society Archinect 2013-03-01T09:17:00-05:00 >2013-03-04T21:10:43-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/85/853fb78d308f17951ee29a8b6c82a470.jpg" width="514" height="343" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>In Santa Barbara, Calif., the hot architect in town is George Washington Smith.

These architects have a few things in common: They're long dead, they're relatively unknown outside the small, affluent pockets where they practiced in the early 20th century and they've all made a comeback.</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/60245032/john-m-johansen-last-of-harvard-five-architects-dies-at-96 John M.
