For 125 years, the Homestake Mine in Lead, South Dakota, founded by the mining magnate George Hearst, was the largest and deepest mine in the Western Hemisphere, and the most productive gold mine in recorded history. In the end, more than 40 million ounces of gold were extracted from the massive underground complex. The mine ceased operations in 2002, but in recent years its deep underground chambers have become home the Sanford Underground Research Facility and some of the most sophisticated physics experiments in the world.

Design Destiny: A Diary of the World Trade Center Site

Keith Helmetag and Amy Siegel of C&G Partners have a long history with the World Trade Center, starting almost 30 years ago. Ironically, one of the first signs they designed for Lower Manhattan, just across the street from the site, survived the attacks of 9/11 and is now an artifact in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. They’ve shared their story with us in a special Designers’ Diary.

Science City, National Science Foundation, New York Hall of Science, Chermayeff & Geismar

An on-the-street exhibit that reveals how cities work, the Science City exhibit for New York Hall of Science and the National Science Foundation is a truly interactive piece. Visitors see the depth of water mains below through periscopes, look at the antennae through telescopes and read about infrastructure on interpretive signs. The idea is slated to be adopted by science museums throughout the United States.
