The Iowa Yearly Meeting House is a historic church in Oskaloosa, Iowa. The church was designed by A.T. Simmons in Colonial Revival style and completed in 1913. The church replaced a simple structure from 1865 as part of an effort to draw more patrons to the Quaker church.  The church gained its name from the yearly Quaker meeting held here.

Anamosa Public Library

The Anamosa Public Library, an example of Romanesque Revival, was built by Dwight H. Perkins. The building is unique because it was built using exclusively private funds. Community members began campaigning for the library in 1900 after a community member named Walter S. Benton donated $10,000 to the city for purchasing library books. Benton’s donation was based on the expectation that the city would build a library by 1903. When the city failed to follow through with the project Miss “Lou” Shaw took charge and raised the necessary construction funds.

Savannah Architecture Tour

Georgia is known for its beautiful, vast array of architectural styles.  Savannah alone offers stunning examples of English Regency, Greek Revival, Gothic, Exotic Revival, and Steamboat Gothic architecture.

Look no further than the Owens-Thomas House, pictured above, for one of the best examples of English Regency in the United States.  The home was designed by English architect William Jay and built in 1816. It is now a historical landmark and museum.

The Massie Common School House is a notable example of Greek Revival architecture. The school was built in 1856 with two wings, connected by passageways, added in 1872 and 1886. The school is open for tours and hosts a variety of community events.

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is a stunning illustration of Gothic architecture. The church was finished in 1896 and nearly destroyed by a fire just two years later. Over the years, the church has been updated and restored numerous times, ensuring the building remains standing for years to come.

The Student Center is considered an exotic revival building. Noteworthy features include keyhole arches, arabesque windows, carved and corbelled details, and Moorish-style domes.  Designed in 1909 by Hyman Witcover, the building acted as a synagogue until 1970 and an Episcopal Church until 2002.  It was reopened as the Savannah College for Art and Design Student Center in 2006.

Innovative German Architecture

(photo by 3deluxe)

The KaffeePartner is a coffee machine manufacturing company headquartered in Osnabruck, Germany. The KaffeePartner headquarters were designed by 3deluxe and built in 2012 after just 16 months of construction.  The building is U-shaped and made of white concrete. The corner portion of the building consists of 150 custom-made concrete parts. Each slab is unique with differing widths, giving street viewers an ever-changing view in terms of depth and light.  The property includes factory and administrative aspects of KaffeePartner, as well as, a coffee drive through and sitting area for the public.

3deluxe designed the building with an eye for architectural sculpture and the functionality of commercial buildings. The building is designed to convey the personality of KaffeePartner, right down to the coffee-inspired color palette.

3deluxe is gaining notoriety for designing unique spaces tailored to their inhabitants. The Leonardo Glass Cube was built in 2003 for Glaskoch, a German glass goods manufacturer. The company uses the innovative building for meetings and corporate hospitality. The Cube was designed to blur the lines between the interior and exterior of the property while demonstrating Glaskoch’s products to visitors.

Architects, are you ready to share your knowledge?

The architecture industry took a major hit during the recession of 2008, however, the industry has been slowly recovering over the past five years with growth expected to continue for the indefinite future. Industry growth has led to an increase in individuals obtaining architect licenses.  New architects will be hungry for trade secrets and senior architects will be looking for new, more efficient methods. Architects Training Institute is offering you the chance to use your expert knowledge to meet this increased need for education by authoring online courses. If you haven’t considered authoring a course, ask yourself the following:

  • Have you acquired knowledge about subjects in your industry that you are passionate about?
  • Have you developed working processes within your own career that have helped you grow and succeed?
  • Are you tired of seeing the same mistakes made over and over within your industry?

Author hours are flexible and their only cost is time. Authors write content, record voice narration, or use the office recording studio at their convenience. Writing a course is a great way to leave a legacy in your industry that benefits professionals for years to come. Pay is based on royalties from course sales with Architects Training Institute offering leading compensation for the online education industry.

6 TIPS FOR COURSE WRITING SUBMIT YOUR COURSE IDEAS

“I am thrilled to be able to share the knowledge I’ve accumulated over the years.  I thought once I retired it would just be put aside.  This has been a great experience, plus I’m enjoying helping people enhance their careers.”
