Space Craft

In Re:Crafted (April; $50) Marc Kristal highlights 25 buildings in which site-specific designs produce exceptional architectural spaces. When it comes to defining craft, Kristal, a longtime contributor to Metropolis, invokes the former Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart on pornography: “I know it when I see it.” A more exact definition lies somewhere in the selected projects, including an art center clad in deliberately crinkled steel, a residence outfitted with steampunk hardware, and an ethereal mobile chapel of thermoplastic rods.
