    KUDOS IN NORTH CAROLINA

    North Carolina architecture once again took the spotlight as that state's chapter of the American Institute of Architects handed out its top awards to a diversity of recent projects. Among them is a single-family house in Raleigh, designed by Architektur, PA (photography by James West), where a combination of rough and refined materials combined to create a warm environment. Next week we'll look at this and some of the other award recipients.

    ENGINEERING GREAT ARCHITECTURE

    Uruguayan engineer Eladio Dieste would not have realized his innovative works had he relied on the conventions of ordinary practice. Instead, he embraced techniques of building with reinforced masonry that in his day were little known and less exploited. Through that technique, he invented structural types that he applied with daring. Next week, Stanford Anderson will introduce us to Dieste's first architectural work, the Church of Christ the Worker, completed in 1960 in the small village of Atlántida.
