posted on Wednesday, December 3rd AT 05:18:29 PM

American Apparel's first green store, designed by JPDA, was published in VMSD magazine. Excerpt below:

"There's a difference between changing out your palette to look green and actually incorporating sustainable practices," says Darrick Borowski, creative director at JPDA.

Remote Lounge featured in Birgit Krols' Extreme Bars book, available now from Tectum Publishing. Excerpt below:

For those not shy of the spotlight and up for their 15 minutes of fame, there was, for a short time only, just one address: Remote Lounge. ... An ideal place to spy on people, although you have to accept that you will also be and remain the object of curious looks. Because despite the fact that some people didn't like to find evidence of their behaviour on the internet, the bar's motto was "whatever goes online, stays online."

posted on Saturday, September 6th AT 07:12:05 PM

Article excerpt from Omaha.com:

American Apparel officials still see promise in the sparse retail-commercial district and in Omaha, said Randy Plemel, project manager with Jordan Parnass Digital Architecture, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company hired by American Apparel to open the store.

"I think what's really positive about American Apparel's position right now is they can be very selective with the sites, and go with the ones that make sense financially," he said. "This sort of up-and-coming area, with all the projected development, is a very exciting place. It's definitely the type of location that American Apparel likes."

Brooklyn Modern is the first book to explore the connection between Brooklyn’s astounding rebirth and its emerging architecture. As the new cultural heart of New York, Brooklyn has recently attracted many young people interested in creating their own sense of space, as well as in renovating brownstones and townhouses. The results are homes that express the optimism, resourcefulness, and experimentation of many of Brooklyn’s bohemian residents. Cutting-edge new public buildings have also enhanced the area’s cachet. Working with spatial and financial restraints, architects in Brooklyn have demonstrated deft solutions to urban living everywhere.
