    TWO ARCHITECTURAL GREATS LOST

    In March, 2005, the world of architecture lost two of its most respected 20th century masters, Ralph Erkskine of the United Kingdom and Kenzo Tange of Japan.

Tange is remembered for bringing Japan out of the ashes of World War II. (Pictured: his St. Mary's Cathedral in Tokyo.) Next week we'll look back on the two illustrious careers.
