    JØRN UTZON WINS PRITZKER PRIZE

    Danish architect Jørn Utzon, who designed the Sydney Opera House in Australia and the Church at Bagsværd, Denmark (Photo by Bent Ryberg /Planet Foto), has been chosen as the 2003 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Lesser known but also distinguished works have emerged from Utzon's long career. Next week we'll look at more of the great work that earned him this prestigious prize.

    LARGE-SCALE MODEL FOR SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

    When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency contemplated a future research and administrative campus in North Carolina, they decided to make it a showcase for environmental ethics. Architects at HOK designed a facility that would be sensitive to the surrounding landscape and set a standard for energy conservation and use of "green" materials. Their efforts have paid off in high indoor air quality and low maintenance costs. Next week, HOK sustainability experts Sandra Mendler and William Odell will explain some of their green design strategies.

    STEVEN HOLL'S BUILDING FOR ASPIRING ARCHITECTS

    Steven Holl has described architecture schools as one of the most difficult of architectural commissions. "Aspiring to design a building which can add to the educational experience of architecture," he says, "is comparable to the problem of a brain surgeon operating on his own brain." The new College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota is Holl's most recently completed response to that problem. Next week, Katharine Logan will explain how he succeeded in integrating two schools of design while enhancing the larger campus.
