If writing about music is like dancing about architecture, then what is writing about architecture like? Singing about cooking? Miming about painting? Whatever you call it, it’s what I do. I write about the design and the construction, the process and the project, the precedents and the innovation. I write about houses, schools, hospitals, museums, offices, shops, restaurants, and parking garages, as well as the people who create them. I write for architects, their clients and the public. And, I aim to communicate the powerful role good architecture – in all its forms – plays in shaping our communities and our lives.

The room, with its rows and rows of conduit aligned in an intricate, pattern of overlapping and parallel pipes is the building’s beating heart. Or, for Buchholtz, a work of art. “It’s like a Michelangelo ceiling,” he says, referring to the impressive order and organization of lines and ducts overhead. read more
