FROM THE WORLD OF ABC STONE

TPG Architecture Designs New York Office for the Associated Press

TPG Architecture has designed a New York office for Associated Press (AP), located in Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects’s Brookfield Place. It is made up of three continuous executive floors with a separate dedicated newsroom floor. The New York outpost acts as a satellite for 263 offices in 106 countries. Transparency was embraced as a design theme to reflect the ethos of the AP as a cooperative, unincorporated association of journalists working together to get at the truth behind current events. Our friends at TPG were given a canvas of 172,K SqFt of space on which to work, and charged with the task of creating a workplace “ring as on-brand” for the organization, which was established in 1846, meaning the scheme had to embrace the past of journalistic tradition and the future of news reporting.

Our friends at OMA | Office for Metropolitan Architecture‘s 9-storey exhibition venue “The Tower” is a luminous white poured-in-place concrete structure which stands beside the Prada Foundation arts complex in Milano. The Rotterdam office of OMA and its head, Rem Koolhaas, along with Christopher van Duijn, have headed up the renovation of 7 former industrial buildings dating back to 1910, and constructed 3 new. The tower is relatively small in terms of footprint—21.6,K Sqft, featuring one gallery per floor on six levels, with the additional three featuring a café, coat check rooms, and miscellaneous services—but stands 200’. It features rectangular and wedge-shaped floors.

In Conversation: Ross Matteson and “Peregrine’s Plate”

Growing up with five siblings in a Pacific Northwest United States family that supported exploration, multicultural exposure, knowledge of current world affairs, creativity, scientific and religious education, Olympia, WA-based sculptor Ross Matteson’s life has always included some form of adventure and imaginative experimentation. In 2016, Ross purchased 1,600 pound custom cut block of Belgian Black marble from ABC Stone. His aim: to create on commission a large plate-shaped sculpture depicting a duck hunt.

After familiarizing himself with the particular species of duck endemic to the area in which the finished sculpture would be displayed, observing and taking thousands of photographs of the bird, and consulting with duck hunters, Ross set to work on his project. Using both CNC and traditional sculpting tools, he produced his sculpture: Peregrine’s Plate.
