2013 AIA Young Architect Awards Honor Tyler Architecture Alumni

Author: Michael Carwile

Tyler Architecture was well represented at last fall’s AIA Philadelphia awards, where alumni Brian Szymanik and Denise Thompson were each recognized with the 2013 Young Architect Award. Brian and Denise are both graduates of Temple with professional Bachelor of Architecture degrees. According to Mary Werner DeNadai, chair of the committee presenting the awards, both Brian and Denise represent “two very diverse sets of credentials” in the Philadelphia architecture community. The Young Architect Award is given to individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and made significant contributions to the profession in an early stage of their architectural careers, and, as DeNadai commented, “Philadelphia has a very promising future for new architecture and planning if these candidates are just a small representation of young architects out there.” Read More

Temple Alum Talks Bricks at Arch Street Meeting House

Author: Michael Carwile

Let’s first set the story aside and contemplate the setting. I think the Quakers would approve of such a reflective pace. It’s a leafy yard in Old City on a weekday afternoon. It’s not quiet per se (few places in the city really are) but the street noise feels held back by a stout wall. Within the wall stands a surefooted brick building, modest but not timid, large – two tall stories under a high hip roof – but not imposing. Against the wall of the building, a master inspects its craft. For it was in this contemplative setting, at the Arch Street Friends Meeting House, that Brent Schopfel, President of Masonry Preservation Group, gave a brief introduction to his trade. Read More

Architecture Conversation at the Athenaeum

Author: Michael Carwile

On September 10th at the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, two accomplished architects spoke in a public conversation. Peter Bohlin (above, center), a founding principal of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, with an office in Philadelphia, and Paolo Desideri, an Italian architect based in Rome, spoke in front of a packed audience in the Athenaeum’s library.  Each architect provided an abbreviated overview of their work, which is even more briefly recounted here: Desideri has recently completed two major public projects in Italy, an opera house in Florence and a railway station in Rome; Bohlin's practice, dating back to 1965, defies easy summary, but is perhaps most widely known for his iconic Apple Stores, including the flagship glass cube on 5th Avenue in New York.
