Built originally as a hotel for the World&rsquo;s Columbian Exposition of 1893, the <a href="http://www.chicagodetours.com/2014/04/mecca-flats-chicago/" target="_blank">Mecca Apartments</a>, which once occupied the site of the now-heralded IIT campus in Chicago&rsquo;s Bronzeville neighborhood, served as a cultural epicenter for the city&rsquo;s Black community. This was a community formed primarily by participants of what is called &ldquo;the Great Migration,&rdquo; one of the largest mass internal migrations in history. Between 1916 and 1970, 1.6 million people fled the American South, where they faced Jim Crow laws, racist ideology, and widespread, institutionalized murder (nearly 3,500 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968). But when they arrived in Chicago and other Northern cities, they were met with similar instances of racism, segregation, and violence. Places like the Mecca Apartments served as rare shelter. So when, under the guise of so-called &ldquo;urban renewal,&rdquo; the Mecca Apartments were slated for demolition to make room for the IIT campus,...</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150012408/18-amazing-examples-of-festival-and-event-architecture-to-celebrate-the-end-of-summer 18 Amazing Examples of Festival and Event Architecture to Celebrate the End of Summer Anastasia Tokmakova 2017-08-29T12:28:00-04:00 >2018-01-30T06:16:04-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/kk/kkoepjv80nbesaak.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>The culture and lifestyle associated with music festivals has greatly changed since they first emerged. Evolving from a symbol of counterculture into popular mainstream entertainment, many music festivals have embraced the use of visual arts and architecture. Typically, this comes in the form of temporary structures and installations that provide visual stimuli, some shade, and often much-needed landmarks for locating lost friends. Even if confined by a tight budget and a short deadline, these temporary structures nevertheless represent exciting examples of efficient and engaging design.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150022723/architecture-architectural-architecture-100-young-architects-present-their-post-digital-microcosms-at-the-a-d-museum "architecture, architectural & Architecture" - 100 Young Architects Present Their Post-Digital Microcosms at the A+D Museum Matthew Allen 2017-08-16T12:52:00-04:00 >2018-01-30T06:16:04-05:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/xv/xvragzqe9s1t874i.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>I may be stepping over some kind of line by reviewing an exhibition that I have something in, but I promise to assume the responsibility of the critic&mdash;that is, to be critical, even self-critical. And to have a point. The eminent art critic Claire Bishop recently lamented that there haven&rsquo;t been many projects that thematize our digital condition. [1] I'd like to elaborate on how this exhibition and the works in it did just that. The take away will be an encapsulation of some of the things to absorb from "the digital" and some themes being pursued in post-digital architecture.</p>
