    LIVING UNDER A LAKE

    In a unique exploration of the capabilities of laminated glass, architect Hideki Casai of the Obayashi Corporation has created an elevated lake over a space used for concerts and exhibitions. Oasis 21 features a “glass sky” filled with water and surrounded by a glass walkway. The project in Nagoya, Japan was one of four winners in this year’s 2003 Solutia design awards program. Next week we'll take a closer look at this and other novel applications of architectural glass.

    VIEWING ARCHITECTURE IN THREE DIMENSIONS

    The View-Master has been a favorite children's toy for generations. By displaying a slightly different image for each eye, the device conveys an impression of three-dimensionality. Now the technology is being used to display the work of modern architectural masters. Next week Michael Kaplan will show where this "toy" fits in the context of a century of stereo photography. (Shown here: Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, a registered service mark of Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.)

    ART, CAPPUCCINO, AND WIRELESS BANKING

    A branch of Umpqua Bank in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon, is an example of what its designers are calling "the next frontier in banking." ZIBA, an award-winning design and branding consultancy, has worked with architecture firm Thompson, Vaivoda & Associates to "reinvent the way consumers and businesses think about banking." The branch offers customers everything from chocolates to wireless laptops. Next week we'll see what this frontier is all about.
