A great writeup from Hidden City Philadelphia on the Cret Illustrated Show hanging in the Hamilton Mansion. Come check it out at the opening tonight from 5:30-8:00

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.

    Since its installation this summer, the West Chestnut Street parking-protected bike lane has been a huge success. People who ride bikes in, out, and through, West Philadelphia have been using the lane with relative ease, and the lane has successfully calmed traffic on what has historically been one of Philadelphia's most crash-prone stretches of street.
