    MIES, MORE OR LESS

    In New York this summer, Mies van der Rohe seems to be everywhere. The Museum of Modern Art's "Mies in Berlin" and the Whitney Museum of American Art's "Mies in America" each bookend the work of one of the most celebrated Modern architects.

Or something very different? Next week join Michael J. Crosbie as he explores the exhibits and architecture.

Next week CAFM expert Eric Teicholz will explain why understanding this evolution is important to facility managers for the effective practice of their professions.

    A BUILDING AS A CONTEXTUAL MACHINE

    As disciplines, urban design and architecture often seem to be at cross purposes. Urban design tends to concern itself with the collective, architecture with isolated buildings. In Dublin, architect Derek Tynan has created an instructive exception.

Next week we look at the first part of an essay by Raymund Ryan in which he explains this model for modern urban architecture.
