    CHEMISTRY'S NEW HOME ON CAMPUS

    A new research tower and lecture hall have been built to expand and revitalize the chemistry facilities at the University of Wisconsin. They are already serving as prototypes for what other campuses want from their architects. Perhaps this is because this building, designed by Flad + Associates, takes as its inspiration the scholars who use it. Next week Katharine Logan will describe how the building is a simple statement about who the scientists are and what they’ve achieved.

    ALL HANDS OFF DECKS

    Natural materials in a pristine setting: no worries about toxics, right? Wrong, says a study from the Environmental Working Group. Their report documents a risk from high levels of arsenic leaching out of pressure–treated wood in older decks, play sets, and picnic tables. The EWG says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was wrong in reassuring the public last year about the safety of existing structures. Next week we'll examine the risks and solutions.

    AWARDS TO BUSINESS-CENTERED ARCHITECTURE

    Once a year, Business Week and Architectural Record magazines join forces to present awards to projects highlighting how architecture can enhance business strategies by improving image and workplace efficiency. One of those selected is the University of Pennsylvania Department of Facilities and Real Estate Services. The refurbished industrial building includes new office space (photo by Barry Halkin) that has been credited with the department's greater ease in recruiting and retaining personnel. Next week we'll look at a few more of the award-winning projects.
