  • Inga Saffron takes us inside the new headquarters of the healthy-fast-causal food chain Honeygrow at Front & Oxford Streets in Fishtown, where architect Richard Stokes has conjured, inside a 18,000-square-foot building, an office space in harmony with the four-year-old company’s millennial culture: therapeutic guitar riffing, a test kitchen and cafeteria, a mezzanine library, room for yoga sessions, an industrial-size commissary that can serve all of the chain’s 15 locations, and a growing series of commissioned murals along its façade. “Dappled light flutters into a serene rustic-industrial main space, and a towering blue spruce tree fills the huge windows on the east wall…The background noise comes from the gentle murmur of fountains, and a small ‘oasis’ garden offers employees a Zen refuge. The rumbling El seems very far away, indeed.”
  • Choreographers Alie Vidich and Tatiana Hassan talk with NewsWorks’ Kimberly Haas about this year’s performance of their “Invisible River” acrobats suspended from the Strawberry Mansion Bridge. Organized in conjunction with this weekend’s Schuylkill River Arts Day, this performance art fully allies itself with our “Hidden River,” taking note of every variable that the wind and tide provide. “The element of unpredictability is really high,” says Hassan. “You have to be more flexible and be more into structured improvisation,” she said. “You have to move along with nature.”
  • From Three Logan Square’s 51st floor, Naked Philly peers across 18th & Arch Street, up to the still rising core of the Comcast Innovation and Technology Center.
