Charles Hill, Heroic Undercover Art Detective, Dead At 73

“Hill’s willingness to take major risks in order to find some of the world’s greatest stolen artworks” — most famously, Vermeer’s Lady Writing a Letter With Her Maid (in 1993) and Munch’s The Scream (in 1996) — “made him one of the most celebrated art detectives in the world.” – ARTnews

The Fifteen-Minute City? Sweden Considers The “One-Minute City”

A plan piloted by Swedish national innovation body Vinnova and design think tank ArkDes focuses attention on what Dan Hill, Vinnova’s director of strategic design, calls the “one-minute city.” It’s a order of magnitude smaller than other recent think-local planning conceits. While Paris works with a 15-minute radius and Barcelona’s superblocks with nine-block chunks of the city, Sweden’s project operates at the single street level, paying attention to “the space outside your front door — and th...

DIY: Build your own book arch

Scott Hill, the proprietor of Sandman Books in South Florida,  has shared his secrets on how to make your very own book arch. It begins with a familiar bookseller quandary – what to do with all those books one acquires “that are simply at the end of their lives”. Hill decided to do something fun and went to work building a book arch. He built his first one in 2013 and when his shop moved in 2019 he was back at it. The arch has become a bit of tourist destination and next month the first wedding...

The amount of plastic in the ocean could triple in 10 years

Plastic in the ocean could triple between 2015 and 2025, according to a new report for the United Kingdom government.

Professor Edward Hill of the UK National Oceanography Center told the BBC, “We really need a mission to planet ocean — it’s the last frontier.” Related: Shocking Caribbean photos reveal a “sea of pl...

Why Trump's $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan is a disaster for the environment

Today President Trump finally revealed his much-hyped infrastructure plan, which sets a goal of improving America’s crumbling transportation systems. But the $1.5 trillion-dollar plan only includes a small amount of federal funding and focuses heavily on working with private investors. Even more concerning is the fact that the proposal alters the way projects get approved, which could have a devastating impact on the environment. So how does Trump’s infrastructure plan threaten the environment,...

Chaucer, Rabelais, BALZAC: A Music Man Glossary

Meredith Willson’s The Music Man contains dozens of words and phrases that most of us have never used or even heard, many of them things that Willson himself must have heard growing up in turn of the century Iowa.

Sticks & Stones Home by Luigi Rosselli Architects

Hunters Hill is an attractive, historic peninsula that lies between the Parramatta and Lane Cove rivers on the north shore of Sydney Harbour. The suburb, a precursor to the Garden City movement, was subdivided in the 19th century with sandstone mansions and Victorian timber cottages sitting side by side, with large gardens and private parks containing centuries old trees. It was natural to choose stone and timber to build a new house on the edge of one of these private parks. Sydney...
