Action Second Renovation</em></p> <p>Rooms for data processor and faculty offices were installed on the first floor of Rand Hall for the Cornell Computer Center in 1959. Additional interior walls were erected to expand the office spaces on the west end of the second floor of Rand Hall. Today, the digitized collection of the entire library can be contained within the memory of a hard drive smaller than the size of a single book. But in 1959, the physical space required by a digitized library would have occupied more area than a traditional library of book stacks containing the same amount of information.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150059816/cross-talk-5-criticism-introduction Cross-Talk #5: Criticism — Introduction Anthony Morey 2018-04-13T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-04-20T23:35:53-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/i7/i7g0lkij6rrcriej.gif" border="0" /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> https://archinect.com/features/article/150059581/redlines-pidgin Redlines: Pidgin Anthony Morey 2018-04-12T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-04-12T14:08:10-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/pt/ptgegfoaaro3hm47.jpg?fit=crop&auto=compress%2Cformat&w=1200" border="0" /><p>Redlines is a collection of interviews with editors&nbsp;that make today's most provocative architectural publications come to life.&nbsp;While architecture is traditionally concerned with buildings, materials, and scale, their importance and historical impact are recorded through words, books, and images that are often organized, published, and disseminated. Redlines seeks to understand the pedagogical and design frameworks that shape this process.</p> <p>In this session, we look at Pidgin, produced and edited by graduate students at the <a href="https://archinect.com/schools/cover/309/princeton-university" target="_blank">Princeton School of Architecture</a>. Published twice yearly, Pidgin features the written and visual work of students, scholars, artists, and writers.</p> https://archinect.com/features/article/150059406/soapbox-social-housing Soapbox: Social Housing Anthony Morey 2018-04-11T09:00:00-04:00 >2018-04-11T00:22:02-04:00 <img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/cd/cd51hoywk5n6ktye.gif" border="0" /><p><a href="https://archinect.com/news/tag/1045325/soapbox" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Soapbox</a>&nbsp;is a weekly series delivering a curated set of lectures, talks and symposia concerning contemporary themes but explored through the archives of lectures past and present.
