"All System's Go," an article appearing in the April issue of Architectural Record, profiles the work of Austin + Mergold, the firm of Assistant Professor Aleksandr Mergold (B.Arch. '00) and Jason Austin (B.Arch. '00).

The article focuses on the firm's ability to "find unconventional beauty in conventional building materials," and highlights several recent projects including SuralArk, which won the Architectural League's 2014 Folly competition; and The Lancaster Bundle, their winning entry to a competition to transform a 700-gallon stormwater cistern at a brewery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania into a public artwork.
