The American Institute of Architects
, the country's oldest, most respected and (okay) only trade and advocacy group for architects has a nice piece up about the Arch grounds design competition,
parsing the finalists' designs from a position of architectural erudition that we here at Daily RFT
don't quite occupy ourselves.
It went out in the group's Friday newsletter, AIArchitect
, and is on the top of its website
. (We'll forgive associate editor Zach Mortice
for calling our fair city "a down-on-its-luck Midwestern city of red brick, vanished industry, and past glories.")
If you've been following the competition, the piece isn't breaking any major news, but it's definitely a smart look at the designs, and it's nice to get noticed by architecture's major outlet.
