THE NEW ISRAELI EMBASSY IN BERLIN

This was to be Israel's first embassy in Berlin, the same city in which, almost 60 years ago, the then-ruling Nazis decided on the "final solution," which was to be a death sentence for six million Jews. In designing the embassy, the architects were faced with the challenge of finding an appropriate architectural expression of the symbolism, while refraining from monumentalism. Next week ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Lili Eylon will explain how Tel Aviv architect Orit Willenberg-Giladi, in collaboration with German architect Wolfgang Keilholz, met the challenge.

A GREENE AND GREENE HOUSE RETURNS TO LIFE

The Robert Roe Blacker House in Pasadena, California, was the largest and most elaborate house that came out of the architectural collaboration of brothers Charles and Henry Greene. Now the early-20th-century house has undergone a five-year renewal, and restoration architect Randell L. Makinson has documented the building and its history in a new monograph with photos by Thomas A. Heinz. Next week ArchitectureWeek will display a portion of this book in which the two architect/authors discuss the site, the interiors, and the furnishings as well as the building and its role in the history of the Arts and Crafts movement.

WILKINSON EYRE ARCHITECTS WIN STIRLING PRIZE

A former steel works in the north of England, transformed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects into a hands-on science adventure center, has won this year's Stirling Prize, the United Kingdom’s most prestigious award for architecture. Unlike other British museums that tell the tale of the country's industrial past, the Magna Centre uses the framework of its former life to provide a window to the future. Next week join ArchitectureWeek contributing editor Don Barker as we embark on an adventure through the award-winning building.
