    THE NEXT GENERATION OF BRITISH ARCHITECTS

    While critics debate the fate of Modernism and Post-modernism, many young architects are ignoring the doomsayers and generating an energetic body of work. They belong to a generation that began to practice at a time when the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain and the wave of lottery-funded millennium projects in Britain transformed the public appetite for architecture. One example is the Fingal County Hall in Dublin (pictured) by the Northern Ireland firm of Bucholz McEvoy Architects. In his introduction to New Architects 2, Deyan Sudjic places these young practitioners in their emerging context of architectural history.

    THE ART AND SCIENCE OF COURTYARDS

    Courtyards are special areas that allow the inside and outside to mingle, where rain, wind, daylight, night darkness, and sound can be showcased in niches of beauty and solace. For several years, architecture professor John S. Reynolds has been studying courtyards in Spain and Latin America, and photographing and measuring their forms, variations, and responses to local climate conditions. Next week he will share a few examples of how open-air courtyards can remain comfortable during the heat of the day.

    BUILDING IN THE AGE OF ANXIETY

    The 17th annual Build Boston conference held on November 13-15, 2001 captured critical themes foremost in many minds these days. According to construction industry experts, the first recession in the United States in a decade, exacerbated by the disaster of September 11, and the boom and bust of the Web world in the past 2-1/2 years have forced us to reevaluate and reaffirm fundamental principles of sound business practices. Yet despite the gloom, there was plenty of "build" at Build Boston. Next week, Evan H. Shu, FAIA will share his observations at the trade show, including a tour of Boston's Big Dig and an exhibit of design awards.
