HONEY BEE OBSERVATORY

The building is a rectangular donut with hives located at its center. Bees enter and leave the hives through glass observation tubes that pass through public space. Visitors in this space are provided with a unique means of observing both bee traffic and the act of bee keeping but are always safely removed from danger.

WETLAND LABORATORY Situated near a swamp, the form of the building looks to diffusion for inspiration. Portions of the lab loop out over land and water, engaging the surrounding landscape through small courtyards and scenic views. Additionally, the roof itself acts as its own landscape, intended to provide researchers with private gardens for more controlled study.

MEMENTO HOUSING Two bar buildings flank a central passage of deciduous trees. Exterior walls are clad in panels of untreated lumber meant to weather at different rates. The arrangement serves as a gentle reminder of the constant flow of time.

HARBOR PAVILION From its exterior, the pavilion appears an understated glass box. Inside, however, the walls bend and ripple so as to distort views toward areas of interest. Through a form reminiscent of Aalto’s Savoy Vase, tourists are presented with an opportunity to see the harbor differently.

AMERICAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE The building’s library doubles as its circulation. Cuts through multiple floor plates reveal what lies ahead, but the path is never direct. In moving upward, visitors encounter not only a wealth of knowledge via books, but a wealth of wisdom via the staff members who work adjacent to the library path. The intention is to reinforce the idea that genuine success only follows a zeal for knowledge.

CREEKSIDE RESTAURANT Situated alongside a neglected creek, the proposal suggests clearing an abandoned big box strip mall and replacing it with a park and restaurant. Located in a flood plain, the restaurant itself sits atop a series of terraces and cantilevers out over the water, drawing attention to what could be a site rife with natural beauty. Note: Creekside Restaurant was part of a larger studio that sought to make a series of surgical interventions into the city of Maplewood, Missouri. Building in a flood plain was only pursued given that the area was already developed and in serious disrepair.

MONASTERY AND CONTEMPORARY ART SPACE Monks’ cells and a cloister sit atop the structure, opening to the sky, while merchants’ shops engage the street. The monastery, closed off to the public and clad in translucent glass, hangs within the center of the building like a jewel. Art galleries and balconies wrap around the structure, terminating in the chapel, wherein monks and visitors are permitted to intermingle.

As Homecoming Weekends go, the 2006 celebration could not have gone much better. Hundreds of alumni and friends descended upon campus on October 6-8 to take in the Alumni Awards Banquet, a Charger football game, the tent party and other activities while also basking in the seasonably warm temperatures and sunshine, with not a cloud to be found in the bright blue sky all weekend long.

pride to their alma mater through outstanding accomplishment in their careers and dedicated service to the College and to others. Ten alumni were honored at this year’s ceremony. Dr. James Seward, ’64, CarolAnn Coppler Barker, ’63, and J. Wickliffe Ach, ’70, received Distinguished Alumni Awards. Seward works as a consultant in the areas of cardiovascular disease and pediatric cardiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and also teaches at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine. He has authored four books, almost 1,000 other publications and holds 18 patents. Seward gave a presentation on his work at the Academic Interest Session held on Saturday morning. Barker is a familiar face to many alumni as she served as dean of women at Hillsdale from 1980 until her retirement this summer. Prior to working for the College, Barker taught high school English and journalism in Quincy, Dearborn and Hillsdale. She taught journalism courses at Hillsdale and also advised numerous organizations in her capacity as director of

Washington-Hillsdale Internship Program (WHIP) The Washington-Hillsdale Internship Program (WHIP) provides students an opportunity to earn academic credit coupled with practical political experience interning in Washington, D.C. WHIP is open to Hillsdale College students of all majors, but all WHIP internships should be political internships, such as at Congressional offices, government agencies or public policy think tanks. Interested students should have completed at least three political science courses, including Political Science 101, “The U.S. Constitution,” and it is highly recommended that students wait until their junior or senior year to participate in WHIP. After applying and being accepted into WHIP, the student is responsible for identifying and securing the internship of his or her choice. Hillsdale students have a choice of a summer internship or a semester-long internship during the academic school year. For a semester internship, students enroll and pay regular tuition for 12 credit hours. (All scholarships for the regular academic year apply toward WHIP.) Students can earn three credit hours for a summer internship of at least four weeks, and six credit hours for an internship of seven weeks or longer.

WHIP WASHINGTON-HILLSDALE INTERN PROGRAM

While interning in Washington, D.C., students will enroll in “Congress and the Administrative State,” a course taught by Hillsdale College adjunct professors in the D.C. area. Thought and action merge together as student interns participate in the political process of the United States government, presenting opportunities to meet influential political figures and utilize the many research resources in the nation’s capital.

WHIP

For more information, contact Assistant Professor of Political Science and Director of WHIP Dr. Thomas Krannawitter at tkrannawitter@hillsdale.edu or (517) 607-2490.

DETECTIVE SHORT Scotch neat.

Besides a divorce...? I guess another drink’ll do, thanks.

Jess sent you to bring me back to Chicago.

Not exactly... You need anything, ma’am?

What can I get you sir?

Mr. Hunter sent me and three other fellows. He wants his papers back.

I’ve hidden them.

Scotch neat, thanks.

I know. One reason I’m glad I found you before the others.

Apparently not hard enough, Mr. Jordan.

That, and you’re still alive.

How do you know you’re the first?

You’re a hard woman to find, Mrs. Hunter.

Illustration

Mr. Hunter is still paying me, for one.


So it’s like that.

Mallard Hotel

Want to know why I’m in this line of work, Mrs. Hunter?

He doesn’t want to divorce you, Maxine. Alimony. Audits.

You’re a nosy bastard so dirty even the cops won’t have you?

Will he send those others after me?

That’s my choice? What about the divorce? I figure you’ve still got half the money you left Chicago with. You give me the papers, I’ll see you safely onto a ship. You’ve got a sister in Buenos Aires don’t you?

Just one second, I’ll get my key.

If you’re out of the country and he’s got the papers? Not Likely.

Half right. I wasn’t dirty enough.

This the one you took with you or the one you bought in Nevada?

People are pretty tame. Most only do crazy awful things when they’re desperate, when they think they don’t have a choice.

People like your husband. Like you, maybe.

Don’t bother.

I do this job to give people choices. I’m here to give you a choice, Mrs. Hunter.

It’s Maxine. Call me Maxine.

C’mon in. They’re gone.

My god! They’ve torn everything apart.

To be continued...
