By Stephen Powers
Valentine’s Day brings an avalanche of platitudes, from the banal to the heartfelt, delivered to the subject of one’s amore. Normally, the recipient of these overtures is a person, but in the case of artist Stephen Powers, city neighborhoods, and the people that live and work in them, are the muse. Claiming the sides of forgotten buildings and outdated infrastructure as his canvas, Powers presents city dwellers with provocative text-based art that riffs on popular forms of communication, from self-help affirmations and advertising mantras to starry-eyed confessions. This earnest language cast in colorful formations is a satisfyingly jolting juxtapositio
Owen Williams, Boots Packed Wet Goods Factory, (1930-1932)
Owen Williams’s most successful daylight factory — one for which he is justifiably famous — is also the first project for which he served as both architect and engineer. It is considered a masterpiece of the Modern Movement. However, its style did not emerge from the European modernist line but from American concrete technology and industrialized construction methods.
Williams’s atrium roof — a steel truss with cast concrete purlins and a concrete slab punctuated with cylindrical glass block skylights — was to become a Modern Movement standard. His use of slender steel framed glazing, where coupled frames are used to create ribbons of glass, was a new development that also became central to the Movement.
