    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, in Nagoya, Japan, features a "glass sky" filled with water and surrounded by a glass walkway. The project 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.

    DESIGNING COLLEGE LIBRARIES

    There is no shared facility more central to the purpose of a modern college or university than its library system. Whether as a collection of print materials, an electronic database, or a place of group activities, the campus library provides a core of resources and services for learning and research that is vital to every discipline. Next week we'll learn about some important library-design considerations from John Ruble, of Moore Ruble Yudell Architects and Planners.

    A SCHOOL IN THE LEED

    The Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara, designed by the Los Angeles office of Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Partnership, has been recognized with a 2003 Calibre Award for Environmental Leadership. According to the awards jury, the Bren School exemplifies green interior design through its use of materials developed from renewable sources. Next week we'll learn about how the Bren School carries this concept further through public education.
