FROM THIS EPISODE
Last August, Brooklyn resident Jeffrey Tanenhaus quit his day job and headed west -- on a sturdy three-speed Citi Bike. This week, he completed his journey at the Santa Monica Pier.
He chats with DnA about his 3,000+ mile ride, where he’ll go next, and what happens when you exceed the bike-share use time limit, by five months.
Some big announcements in the architecture world: Alejandro Aravena won the coveted Pritzker Prize, and the list of firms vying to design the Obama Presidential Library in Chicago was narrowed to seven.
Cliff Pearson talks about Aravena's socially oriented, "muscular" work, and the firms in the running for the Obama Library design. Aric Lasher weighs in on how Obama's transformative role as America's first black president shapes expectations for his library.
Goodbye Cat Fancy, hello Catster. The traditional cat magazine, with its articles on grooming and purebred felines, has been replaced by more stylish and Instagram-friendly periodicals.
Gideon Brower talks to Adweek's Emma Bazilian about the new breed of cat magazines and meets the creative team behind Puss Puss, a high-end British semiannual focused on art, fashion, lifestyle -- and cats.
