The illustrations are conveniently organized into seven main categories and 40 subdivisions. Each poster is also individually numbered and signed by the artists.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/il/ilq35tqrb2vqa7cy.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/7t/7t973xyxitaykhqr.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/c8/c8mtd96eyn9z5zsm.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/lz/lzdxcpxs1l1f5wmy.jpg"><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/my/myex243izodlqghc.jpg"><br><em>Images via popchartlab.com</em></p><p>The poster is available for purchase <a href="http://popchartlab.com/products/the-architecture-of-american-houses" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a>.</p><p>h/t <a href="http://www.visualnews.com/2015/07/25/home-in-on-4-centuries-of-american-house-architecture-with-this-print/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Visual News</a></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/118194332/relax-on-kepler-16b-where-your-shadow-always-has-company Relax on Kepler-16b: Where Your Shadow Always Has Company Nicholas Korody 2015-01-12T13:39:00-05:00 >2015-01-14T20:41:28-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/pk/pk6zrbphelj29f6b.jpg" width="514" height="742" border="0" title="" alt="" /><p>Remember the memorable double sunset on the desert planet Tatooine in the original Star Wars? As it turns out, such a vista isn't unimaginable &ndash; if you can get to Kepler-16b, an exoplanet about 196 light years away. Of course, if you did get there, you might be disappointed to find that the planet is actually a gas giant, or that its temperature is close to that of dry ice.</p><p>One of a thousand such exoplanets recently discovered by NASA, Kepler-16b has been commemorated in a poster designed by&nbsp;Joby Harris, David Delgado and Dan Goods. In a style reminiscent of early 20th-century travel advertisements, the poster is part of a <a href="http://planetquest.jpl.nasa.gov/images" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">series</a> that playfully celebrates the exciting discoveries that have been made by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kepler_%28spacecraft%29" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Kepler telescope</a>, launched in 2009 to discover Earth-like planets. Published under the guise of the fictional "Exoplanet Travel Bureau," the posters help bring the excitement of the project into legible terms for us layfolk.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/ld/ld796dlp2i03gmwa.jpg"></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>"Experience the gravity of HD 40307G," a "super planet" with ...</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/76629908/the-design-value-of-the-lecture-poster The Design Value of the Lecture Poster lrenechln 2013-07-09T13:00:00-04:00 >2013-09-20T23:08:25-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/e6/e6gpdurrfuqw474o.jpg" width="514" height="771" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>A selection of GSD events posters has been acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago for its permanent collection...Zo&euml; Ryan, Chair and John H.

These are artifacts of built and unbuilt projects documenting the process and ideas of architects from Adler and Sullivan to Jeanne Gang and Diller + Scofidio. There are also architectural fragments, design objects, and furniture pieces which make up the museum's robust collection.&nbsp; The most recent acquisition to the department's holdings, however might simply be stored in a tube or a modest flat file drawer.&nbsp;</p> <p> Students and faculty at any architecture school are used to receiving a folded copy of the semester's visiting lecturers in their mailbox.&nbsp; These seasonal posters become ubiquitous around campus as they are taped, pinned, and posted along the hallways also.&nbsp; So what has inspired the elevation of such event posters to become archived by the Art Institute of Chicago?</p> <p> <strong>Zo&euml; Ryan, Chair and John H.
