    COASTAL ARCHITECTURE

    Over the last few decades, BOORA Architects has become known as one of the west coast's premier design firms, fusing the resources of a large company with the design acumen of a smaller, boutique practice. Now one of BOORA's most impressive projects is also one of its smallest: a single family house perched on a wooded hillside on the rugged Oregon coast, designed and inhabited by firm principal Stanley Boles, FAIA. Next week Portland writer Brian Libby will show us around.

    TRAVEL POSTCARD FROM RONCHAMP

    In April 2003, a small group of young British designers left home to travel the world by bicycle. Their route will take them literally around the globe, recording architectural and urban spaces as they go, crossing Europe and Asia and biking up through Central and North America over the course of one year. Next week team leaders Matt Bridgestock and Adam Mellotte will send ArchitectureWeek a postcard from Notre Dame du Haut, at Ronchamp, France, designed by the renowned early-20th-century architect Le Corbusier.
