The Academy of Modern Ruins » The Philosopher’s Library
"In our age of increasing distractions, the need for perspective and reflection is essential. Candy Chang and James A. Reeves will transform an abandoned gas station on Route 66 into a library dedicated to pilgrimages and personal transformation. Located in the Mojave desert, The Philosopher’s Library will be a remote sanctuary filled with books about leading an examined life, as well as a card catalogue where travelers can share their philosophies for personal well-being.

Initial preparations for the library are underway. Share the books that changed your life below and we’ll include them in our catalogue. Your description will be printed on a handsome book plate inside the book you’ve recommended."

Neighborland
"Neighborland is a fun and easy way for residents to suggest new businesses and services that they want in their neighborhood. It's a great tool for residents to voice new ideas for vacant commercial real estate, existing public space, and development projects in the works. As our community grows, entrepreneurs, property owners, and developers will be able to hear the collective needs and wants of a neighborhood, and build relationships with their future customer base. Neighborland is supported by the Tulane City Center, part of Tulane's School of Architecture, with the generous support of Tulane's Social Entrepreneurship Program and the Rockefeller Foundation."
