A rebuilt elementary school stands as a symbol of resilience in a flood-ravaged village.

In September 2011, Tropical Storm Lee roared into the Gulf of Mexico and wreaked havoc in states from Louisiana and Mississippi all the way up to Pennsylvania and New York. It caused severe flooding in many of those states and left deep scars on many communities in its wake.

One of those communities is the town of Owego, New York. The county seat of Tioga County, the town of just about 4,000 was hit hard by rising waters brought on by Tropical Storm Lee. The school district was hit with particular fury. Four of the district’s buildings were completely destroyed by flooding, and others were severely damaged. (more…)

Custom green metal panels highlight a building that represents hope for the needy.

By Henry Burke

For the West Texas Food Bank, the color green is a symbolic design element. Green represents both freshness and hope, which the organization has been providing in the Odessa, Texas, region since 1985.

So when the hunger relief organization set out to build a new 60,000-square-foot volunteer and community center that would house its expanded food assistance efforts, it was only natural for the color green to play a central and unifying role. Parkhill, Smith & Cooper (PSC), the building’s designer and a longtime supporter of the food bank, designed an entryway highlighted by a custom “festival green” color as a focal point for the building.

TreanorHL Architects Link Exterior Design with Interior Purpose for Cutting-Edge Research Facility. 

It’s amazing what nearly one million pounds of bi-directional pressure is capable of.
