    IT'S OFFICIAL: VENICE IS SINKING

    One of the most visited tourist centers in the world is today threatened by the very element that makes it famous. The canals of Venice, Italy can no longer hold back the rise of the tidal waters. As the city sinks and the tides rise, the architectural heritage is seriously threatened. Join ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Don Barker as he tours the famous city explaining the problems, the history of flooding, strategies for preventing further damage, and methods of underwater repair.

    THE PRINTWORKS OF DUBLIN

    In part two of a series on the building that has recently won the Silver Medal for Housing from the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland, we take a closer look at the building itself.

    On the rugged Northern California coast stands a unique, decades-old development called Sea Ranch. Houses there have always been designed according to strict guidelines that respect the wind-swept bluffs.

Next week, Michael Wike, AIA shares his thoughts on modern design processes for traditional architectural forms.
