I participate in a portraiture project organized by architecture student Carly Dean, along with Mark Morris (top left) and Henry Richardson (top right) — based on a prior photo (bottom) of Raymond Hood and others at Rockefeller Center: November, 2013 (top photo by Carly Dean).
We construct an animal-proof cage for a raised-bed garden, using the frame from an old Harbor Freight portable garage and covering it with left-over welded-wire fencing donated by a friend: June, 2014 (photo by Susan Schwartz).
We drive Rob to Pittsburgh for a New Year's Eve party; Susan takes this picture of Rob and I at the Warhol Museum: December 31, 2014 (photo by Susan Schwartz).
The three Ochshorn brothers take a road trip to Ann Arbor, MI, stopping in Erie, Cleveland, Buffalo, and here for lunch — at the Village Casino in Bemus Point, NY: late May 2015. You can see my performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
I publish a second edition of my Structural Elements textbook with Common Ground, a new academic publisher: August, 2015.
To celebrate my 64th birthday on May 6, 2016, I record the classic McCartney tune, "When I'm Sixty-Four."
I spend five months, from Sept. 2016 through Jan. 2017, as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar teaching at Tianjin University in China, here waiting for the No. 3 line subway in Tianjin, Sept. 2016. See my photo-journal.
Back in Ithaca, the first two months of 2018 are too cold for shaving; it's been 17 years since I last grew a beard, but the time seems right for a change.
My PSA is rising; I have a prostate MRI at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC; then a biopsy which finds cancer; and then a robot-assisted radical prostatectomy in late August, 2018 (photo by Susan Ochshorn-Schwartz).
