    TROPICAL DESIGN FOR A BIG CITY

    In Singapore, city of skyscrapers, a new building by Kohn Pedersen Fox stands out as the city's first "groundscraper." The design of One Raffles Link reflects a Singaporean tradition of efficient urban planning that makes the most of the city's precious land and reinforces its aim to remain a garden city. The building spans two cultures, with a ground-level colonnade providing shelter from Singapore's tropical climate and European-style rusticated stonework reminiscent of nearby colonial buildings. Next week we'll look more closely at the building's other unique features.

    WRIGHT'S PRAIRIE STYLE PRESERVED IN OHIO

    In 1907, a new house in Springfield, Ohio was considered by local residents a monstrosity. Now almost 100 years later, the unique wood and stucco house by Frank Lloyd Wright is the subject of international attention and a restoration campaign. After years of gradual deterioration, the house is under the protection of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and the Westcott House Foundation, which are collaborating in its preservation.

    A WEEK OF ARCHITECTURE IN OLD AND NEW VIRGINIA

    The Northern Virginia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects celebrated "Virginia Architecture Week" in mid-April. This was an opportunity to remind residents of the region which includes Washington D.C. of the country's history that lies embedded in its buildings. Old Town Alexandria, for example, which began as a seaport in the 18th century, has successfully preserved its historic scale, while remaining a lively, vibrant city. Next week Deborah Burns, executive director of AIA Northern Virginia will show us why the region has reason to celebrate.
