    THE NEWEST PHASE OF GREENWICH MILLENNIUM VILLAGE

    Innovation and sustainability are the two key drivers for the Greenwich Millennium Village in southeast London. Built to a master plan by Swedish-based architect, Ralph Erskine, it is an ambitious mixed-use development incorporating public housing and its own information technology infrastructure. The architecture accentuates flexibility, efficiency, and economy without compromising design, and the project aims to set new standards for environmentally sustainable developments. In our next issue contributing editor Don Barker will show us around.

    NEW ENGLAND PRESENTS DESIGN AWARDS

    In late September, the New England Regional Council of the American Institute of Architects announced its annual design awards. Honor awards were given to eleven firms including Boston-based Ruhl Walker Architects, Inc. for the loft apartment pictured here. The jury cited a "sophisticated use of materials and detailing and wonderful lighting." In addition, a 25-Year Award was handed to BTA Architects, Inc. for Quincy Market in Boston. The adaptive reuse project has become a trend setter for urban marketplaces. Join us next issue in surveying these and other award winners.

    WAREHOUSE RENOVATION BECOMES ECOLOGICAL SHOWPLACE

    Some have called it Portland, Oregon's "greenest building." The Jean Vollum Natural Capital Center, which opened in September, is a century-old, brick-and-timber warehouse renovated with environmentally innovative materials and techniques. This is a project of Ecotrust, a nonprofit organization that promotes a conservation economy along North America's rainforest west coast. ArchitectureWeek will look at the renovation's use of recycled materials and the underlying philosophy of the progressive businesses and organizations that now call it home.
