What’s Your Favorite High-Country Structure?

Mountain Living magazine recently asked several top mountain area architects to name their “favorite high-country building.” Charles Cunniffe, principal of Charles Cunniffe Architects, named the Grand Canyon Skywalk as his building of choice.

“The Grand Canyon Skywalk. Its bold and simple gesture in the landscape allows people to experience the canyon in an outrageous and unexpected way.”–  Charles Cunniffe

Located in Mohave, Arizona, the Grand Canyon Skywalk is a horseshoe-shaped cantilever bridge offering unobstructed views of the Grand Canyon. The overlook was commissioned by the Hualapai Indian tribe and designed by architect Mark Ross Johnson. The length of the Skywalk is 69 feet and it sits suspended 4,757 feet above the base.

Explore The Theory of Moderism, Design & The Luminaire at Anderson Ranch Arts Center

This summer Oscar Carlson, our incredibly talented Job Captain, took part in Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s workshop called “Modernism, Design & the Luminaire”. The week-long session introduces students, via image and lecture, to the theory of Modernism, the design process and lighting principles. Each student designed and crafted their own project using mixed-media techniques. Oscar’s work connects life and light through the use of metal as an organically composed exoskeleton as the light source, and controls light through the use of Plexiglass and edge treatments.

Through experimentation, he was able to bring life to something made from very cold and sterile materials. We are so proud of his talents and appreciate Oscar’s creativity and artistic endeavors. For more on this class visit Andersonranch.org.
