A Classical Revolution

Devin Kimmel, Principal at Kimmel Studio, LLC. and ICAA member, has been named one of five finalists in the World War One Centennial Commission’s Design Competition for the National World War One Memorial in Washington, DC. The only traditional design among the five finalists, Mr. Kimmel’s proposal brings classicism to the forefront of this important competition. The winning monument is expected to be chosen in January 2016 and subsequently constructed on a parcel of land now known as Pershing Park, located on Pennsylvania Avenue.

I wanted to bring to everyone's attention that the University of Notre Dame is now offering a Master of Science in Historic Preservation in addition to their world renowned Classical Architecture program.

I realize this, however in addition to faster page loading, it provides a streamlined and unified aesthetic.

I agree. 1280 is perfectly fine as it also allows to represent details better, and btw most responsive devices like phones are actually adjusting the image size by themselves, so it's not much of a problem. But for download bandwidth issues, I recommend not to go beyond 1280, as some people across the globe still have to deal with verly slooow connections.

Iowa State Sigma Chi Is Getting A New House That Makes Yours Look Inferior



If you need any evidence that Greek life is on a meteoric rise all across the country, just look at the new houses being built. It seems like you hear about a new one every other day. These new residences aren’t just plain old houses, either. A lot of the new fraternity houses being built are veritable mansions that stand tall over the rest of the campus. Sigma Chi at Iowa State is building one that will be just that.

The Sigma Chi chapter had its 50-year-old house demolished to make room for something much bigger and better. The new 17,000 square foot house, which will cost a grand total of $3.5 million, will house more than 50 brothers. This is no new development, however. While the house won’t be complete until Fall 2015, the project started about five years before the demolition of the old house in July.

The new house will feature numerous amenities that the previous one did not have. There will be suites that sleep four men each, a conference room, study areas, a movie theater, and a recreation room. Additionally, there will be private bathrooms–which is a big upgrade from the eight-man shower in the old house.
