The new Milstein Hall, by OMA office for The Cornell University, is well known and widely published in different media. In its interior spaces, the curtains for the auditorium and workspaces are remarkable. One of the most important collaborators is Petra Blaisse and its Inside Outside company whose proposals are essential to provide a unique filter to the new Milstein Hall.

The start of the Olympics, on Friday, conditions all the events of recent days in London. For a single extraordinary day, on July 15th, commissioned especially by the Mayor of London and London 2012 Festival, staged as part of LIFT 2012, the London International Festival Of Theatre, Brooklyn's visionary choreographer Elizabeth Streb thrilled London with an electrifying series of daredevil, surprise events right on its doorstep.

Streb and her company push the human body to the boundaries of the possible, creating daredevil feats of extreme athleticism, positioned somewhere...

The indirect reference to which we refer is a 1967 sketch for a music score by the composer Istvan Anhalt, “Symphony of Modules,” which was discovered in a book by John Cage titled “Notations,” and which...
