Oregon Becomes the First State to Legalize Mass Timber High Rises

August 17, 2018 Eric Baldwin 0

Oregon has become the first state in the U.S. to allow timber buildings to rise higher than six stories without special consideration. The recent addendum to the state’s building code is the result of Oregon’s statewide alternate method (SAM), a program that allows for alternate building techniques to be used after an advisory council has approved the “technical and scientific facts of the proposed alternate method.” The decision stands as a precedent for future construction across the United States.

Oak Park Housing is a compact urban infill development on a long-vacant lot in Sacramento’s Oak Park district, a demographically diverse neighborhood that, for decades, had suffered from economic stagnation and urban disinvestment. In recent years, young professionals, artists, and students have started to rediscover Oak Park as an affordable community close to downtown Sacramento, with new art galleries, independent coffee shops, and small businesses in tow filling abandoned storefronts throughout the area.

Hollow cubes help to transform a large industrial building into offices for a production company in Los Angeles, completed by local studio FreelandBuck. The project was undertaken for Hungry Man Productions, which had acquired an 8,000-square-­foot (743-square-metre) warehouse with a large open floor plan and hardly any windows.

Emmys 2018 Poll: Who Should Win for Supporting Actor in a Drama Series?

August 17, 2018 0

Two veteran actors tower over their competition in this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series race, with a combined 11 nods in the category. But will a fresh face pull off a shocker and take home the win?

The Emmys have been very, very good to two of this year’s contenders: Peter Dinklage, who nabbed his seventh nomination as Game of Thrones‘ Tyrion Lannister, with two previous wins already in his trophy case; and Mandy Patinkin, who scored his fourth nod as Saul Berenson on the Showtime spy thriller Homeland. (Patinkin also won a Lead Actor in a Drama Emmy back in 1995 for Chicago Hope.) They’ll face a stiff challenge, though, from the less seasoned side of the field.

Stranger Things star David Harbour is back for a second straight year for his work as Sheriff Jim Hopper on Netflix’s sci-fi throwback, and the rest of this year’s nominees are first-timers. After seven seasons, Dinklage’s Game of Thrones co-star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau finally earned his first nod as swordsman Jaime Lannister, while Joseph Fiennes rode a wave of Handmaid’s Tale buzz to his first nomination as Commander Waterford. Plus, Matt Smith broke through in his second season as the chilly Prince Philip on Netflix’s The Crown.

All fine choices, to be sure… but which actor most deserves to clutch gold on Emmy night? (That’s Monday, Sept. 17, if you’re marking your calendar.) Vote for your favorite in the poll below, then hit the comments to defend your pick.

Every day through Aug. 31, we’ll be posting another “Who should win?” poll, so be sure to visit TVLine.com each day to weigh in on who deserves TV’s most prestigious honor. (For a list of this year’s major Emmy nominees, click here; to see all of our previous Emmy polls, click here.)

Your Favorite Fictional Universes in Pen and Paper

August 17, 2018 Niall Patrick Walsh 0

In a world of 3D, HD, 4K, and CGI, architectural representation in the film, television, and gaming industries are becoming ever-more realistic, ever-more dazzling, and ever-more expensive. But strip away the special effects, and the beautifully-crafted architectural forms of fictional worlds such as Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Marvel are no less impressive.

Sleeve House / actual / office

August 17, 2018 Fernanda Castro 0

Oriented in relation to the rolling hills of its site and views of surrounding mountain ranges, the house is conceived as two elongated volumes – a smaller inner volume sleeved into a larger outer – sitting on a cast-in-place concrete base. Sleeving the two volumes creates two distinct types of interior space: first, between the inner and outer volumes, and second within the inner volume.
