    RICHARD ROGERS'S CONTRIBUTION TO WOOD STREET

    Wood Street, a relatively low-profile area in the east central business district of London, is just emerging from its latest architectural makeover with Richard Rogers Partnership's first City building since the controversial Lloyd's project in 1986. This elegant, yet airy structure adds an important element to the street's skyline. Next week ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Don Barker will describe the new building, with its "unapologetic modern facade, elegant concrete frame, and honest spirit." This article will also include a 3D model of the building to explore.

    GOING THE NEXT STEP IN SUSTAINABILITY

    Over 700 people gathered recently in Atlanta, Georgia for the fifth annual EnvironDesign5 conference to learn about current and visionary work related to environmental stewardship. Setting the theme of "Best Practices in Sustainability" were William A. McDonough, FAIA, and Michael Braungart who stressed the importance of being not just "eco-efficient" but "eco-effective." As with their master plan for revitalizing the Ford Motor Company's Rouge River Plant, they envision a transformation of the environmental movement from its emphasis on minimizing waste to rethinking entire systems, thus eliminating waste. Ross Leventhal, of NBBJ, will explain their thinking and that of other conference presenters.

    VALPARAISO: CRUMBLING MONUMENTS AND COLONIAL FOLLIES

    Half way down Chile's long, jagged Pacific coast, Valparaiso has seen better days. Some of its buildings, including the landmark wedge-shaped Turri clock tower, are typical of the way the quirky architecture molded itself to the twists and turns of the city that grew "organically" after Spanish explorers first landed there in 1536. Yet many of these buildings suffer from neglect and a history of earthquakes. ArchitectureWeek's new South American correspondent Sophie Arie will explain the city's resolve to preserve its colonial past and start capitalizing on its potential as the cultural capital of Chile.
