The glorification of Kim KarTRASHian is disgusting! She has yet to show that she possesses any real talent, skills or substance. Her "following" represents just one of the many vehicles for our crumbling society and a hindrance for feminism and "equalism" How about we admire those such as Alicia Keys, Hilary Clinton, Eleanor Roosevelt, Toni Morrison, or Maya Lin? I've seen enough of her *** How about you try to make a difference by devoting TIME to something other than sex, money or fame
As a veteran of the Vietnam era, I am especially appreciative of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial where the names of many of my Army friends are inscribed. Although I could share pages of information about the memorial, I have tried to limit my comments to details that many may not know. Today in 1984, President Reagan dedicated all 3 units of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial--the wall (designed by 21-year-old undergrad Maya Lin of Yale University), the bronze statue of slightly larger than life-size men named "Three Servicemen" (sculpted by Frederic Hart, who also did massive sculptures at National Cathedral), and an American flag (12' x 18', which flies from a 60' pole 24 hours a day, 7 days a week). The wall is a simple, V-shaped, black-granite wall inscribed with the names of 57,939 Americans missing or killed in the conflict, arranged in order of death, not rank. The architect's Asian heritage was a sensitive issue. Maya Lin, born in the U.S., the daughter of Chinese immigrants, was not even named in ...
Maya Lin, who alongside her husband is building an arts center in won the Gish Prize. Congrats, Maya!
What Is an Architect? An architect is a licensed professional who organizes space. Architects design houses, office buildings, skyscrapers, landscapes, ships, and even entire cities. The services of a licensed architect depend on the type of project; fees may range from 10% to 15% of the total construction costs. Architects organize different types of spaces. For example, architect Maya Lin is known for sculpted landscapes and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, but she has also designed houses. Likewise, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has designed houses in addition to the 2013 Pavilion in London. What Do Architects Do? • Design and plan structures for looks (aesthetics), safety, and accessibility • Turn ideas into reality (see Liberty's Pedestal: Richard Morris Hunt's Architectural Design) • Manage the building project (large projects will have both a design architect and a project manager architect) • Continue their education throughout their career Professional Architects: Architects are trai ...

Today in History -- Saturday, Oct. 5 (Barry Switzer, Steve Miller, Brian Johnson of AC/DC, Karen Allen, Clive Barker, Bob Geldof, Maya Lin, Kate Winslet) The Associated Press Today is Saturday, Oct. 5, the 278th day of 2013. There are 87 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 5, 1921, the World Series was carried on radio for the first time as Newark, N.J. station WJZ (later WABC) relayed a telephoned play-by-play account of the first game from the Polo Grounds, where the New York Giants were facing the New York Yankees, to a studio announcer who repeated the information on the air. (Although the Yankees won the opener, 3-0, the Giants won the series, 5 games to 3.) On this date: In 1892, the Dalton Gang, notorious for its train robberies, was practically wiped out while attempting to rob a pair of banks in Coffeyville, Kan. In 1910, Portugal was proclaimed a republic following the abdication of King Manuel II in the face of a coup d'etat. In 1931, Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon com ...
Good Morning all! If you were not able to click the link from yesterday's New York Times article, I have posted the text below. It's a pretty interesting read, which I hope you all might agree. Squabble Disrupts a Refuge for the Rich NEWPORT, R.I. — Change has rarely been welcomed in this seaside haven of the uber-rich, where the famously over-the-top mansions of the Gilded Age are still called “cottages.” Longtime residents weren’t happy when the America’s Cup defected, or when Bob Dylan went electric at the Folk Festival, or when Maya Lin designed a contemporary memorial to honor the heiress Doris Duke in the village green. And they’re not happy now that the local preservation society, in the name of progress, has proposed a visitors center — with wheelchair-accessible bathrooms and prepared food — on the grounds of the most visited mansion, the Breakers, where the Vanderbilt family’s carved oak dining room table could seat 34 and at least one daughter changed her outfit up to seven ti ...

Here's a clip from a doc we recently watched at a HS. Maya Lin is the designer/architect of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC
Ira writes: "This outfit called the Academy of Arts and Letters gave me a medal last week. The Academy is supposedly made up of the 250 greatest writers, composers, artists and architects in the country. One has to die for another to join. It's been around since 1898. Its membership is a hilariously intimidating list of writers you read in school and iconic cultural figures you'd never think you could meet: Joan Didion, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, E.L. Doctorow, Paul Auster, Toni Morrison, Robert Coover, Elie Wiesel, Don DeLillo, Tom Wolfe, David McCullough, W.S. Merwin, Claus Oldenburg, I.M. Pei, Richard Serra, Chuck Close, Michael Graves, Red Grooms, Tony Kushner, Maya Lin, David Mamet. The medal I received — for Spoken Language — has these previous winners: Bill Clinton, Mario Cuomo, Paul Robeson, Claude Raines (you know, from Casablanca). Crazy, right? They award the thing on the stage of the vast clubhouse they have in New York, a building the size and general vibe of a museum. There's a room that loo ...

On dc November 15, the Museum presents its fourteenth Vincent Scully Prize to Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic Paul Goldberger, for his lifetime work encouraging thoughtful discourse and debate about the importance of design. Goldberger has written for a number of publications including The New York Times, The New Yorker and is currently a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. Scully juror Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk noted his unique ability to “explain architecture to the popular readership in a way that bridges the perceiver and the designer,” and David Schwarz added, “Paul is a person that lets people understand the importance of place.” During the public program, Paul Goldberger delivers an original presentation on the state of architecture criticism today, the changing role of mainstream media in a digital world, and the rise of citizen journalists. Maya Lin, architectural designer and artist, provides opening remarks. The Scully Prize was instituted in honor of Vincent Scully, the Sterli ...

Philosophical Friday: I've heard but not confirmed that, in 1965, a Yale student, Frederick W. Smith, submitted a thesis on the need to develop a system for time sensitive deliveries and received a "C." Six years later, he founded Federal Express. I've heard but not confirmed that another Yale student, Maya Lin, submitted her semester's art project and also received a "C." That project was later commissioned to become the Viet Nam War Memorial. In 1929, a young author published his first novel, Cup of Gold. Not many saw this first novel as it only sold 1,500 copies. Not discouraged, the author continued to hone his craft until he published his masterpiece in 1939. The book was Grapes of Wrath and the author, of course, was John Steinbeck. A highly regarded infantry captain returned f ...

May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a celebration of the immeasurable contributions of generations of Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander ancestry have made to the development of our nation, such as those who helped build the transcontinental railroad, often facing discrimination and exclusionary laws; those who toiled in our fields; the brave men and women in the US Armed Forces who defended freedom during the Civil War, World War I and World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War and in Iraq and Afghanistan; those whose innovations led to a digital and information revolution and breakthroughs in technology, science, medicine that have improved the quality of our lives; and those who have made major strides in the arts and sports –like Maya Lin, Hines Ward, and Jeremy Lin. They are the embodiment of our rich American history and experience and we honor them for the integral roles they played in building and making our nation what it is today.
