Jonathan's Cornell ID card

My old Cornell ID was not swiping properly at the fitness center so I went to the Registrar's office and got a new one, with a new photo, on June 4, 2019. And yes, I'm increasingly using those drugstore reading glasses.

new cedar raised bed under construction

The raised bed that I made in June 2014 with recycled scaffolding planks is replaced with a new cedar structure at the end of the growing season, Oct. 2019.

home workstation during COVID-19 shutdown

I'm working from home as of March 13, 2020—the COVID-19 virus has changed everything. More than two months later, still working from home, I write this love song for a pandemic.

Twitter portrait page showing 'God in the details caulk' image

In a "Golden Notebook" moment, I consolidate my various webpages into a single secure and ADA-compliant domain (jonochshorn.com) and bite the poisonous Twitter apple @jonochshorn, July 2020.

new booksnew books

I publish two books, a third (free) edition of my structures textbook (Sept. 2020) and Building Bad, a monograph on architectural utility and architectural theory (June 2021).

Portrait of Priscilla Lates

My mother, Priscilla Lates, dies on April 8, 2022, exactly one month shy of her 97th birthday. Born and raised in Brooklyn, except when her mother moved the family (sans father) to Tucson and Miami, she taught 4th grade for many years in New Rochelle, was a talented artist, and played the harmonica.

Bookshelves at home holding books transferred from my Cornell office

I retire from Cornell, effective July 1, 2022, and transfer many of my office books to an upstairs bedroom at home where I've been working since the pandemic (I had built the bookshelves originally for my mother's house and retrieved them when she moved into assisted living).
