Architect, designer, and environmental artist Maya Lin carved a permanent, powerful place in the American heart with her Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington DC.

She was 21 when she drew that black granite line in history, and she went on to a wide-ranging life in design.

Ten years ago, Maya Lin announced she was out of the memorial business entirely. But now, she’s done one more: to all the species vanished or vanishing from the Earth. A king-sized listening cone, filled with the sounds of birds and frogs and primates slipping away.

This hour, On Point: Maya Lin and “What Is Missing?”

@tsarstepan,
Wow,

She's something.

That Vietnam memorial is the best war memorial I have ever seen.

And that cone is very powerful.

@dlowan,
They say there is a traveling exhibit as well but they didn't say where it was travelling to and from.

@tsarstepan,
I've followed her for years, but I'm a sloppy architectural follower, and miss stuff.

I have always loved it that she got (I think) a B- for her Vietnam Memorial design in some class.

@ossobuco,
I must have forgotten or never heard that little fact. I should rewatch that great Oscar winning documentary on her... Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision (1994)

@tsarstepan,
Eh, I just read stuff at the time, so I don't know where I read that. So, she is being sanctified? I'd figure she'd take that as constraining. I must perk up on my arch news.

@tsarstepan,
All right then, I like the woman who runs it and the woman who runs arcspace (not sure I have that name right).

I've followed archnewsnow for years and ignored it off and on. I'm in an off period, but I respect the site.

You don't have to name drop ... I'm already impressed! Cool

I used to follow http://www.architectureweek.com/today.html. Or one of the sites affiliated with such... I got in on the student subscription but since I'm no longer a student nor do I have the money to waste I haven't returned to the sites. Too much of a academic luxury rather then something I could use in practical terms.

@tsarstepan,
Don't be impressed by me, I'm a sort of omnivore within my own zones of interest. Never trust me on anything, but I'm occasionally right.
We could play who is poorer - my online connection is my key expense.
I get a kick that you know archnewsnow.

Eh, we will argue in the future, it's inevitable. But I'm enjoying our agreements.

Beautiful, in form & the concept.

Thanks for this thread, tsar.

Her work is just wonderful.

I've been checking out some of the links on this page. Look at this. Stunning! It's called "Desert".:
