    VIRGINIA FIRMS HONORED FOR DESIGN EXCELLENCE

    Eight projects have recently received kudos from the Virginia Society of the American Institute of Architects. One of these is the Morgan Boulevard Station (photo by Jeffrey G. Katz) in Landover, Maryland, designed by a joint venture of Hayes Seay Mattern & Mattern and STV Incorporated. Jurors were impressed by the airy openness of the station, which they attributed in part to the complex structural form. Next week we'll take a look at this and the other Virginia design award recipients.

    SOFT WALLS FOR NEW ROLES

    Like Ray and Charles Eames in the mid-20th-century, architects Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen, of Vancouver, BC, are doing their bit to push contemporary industrial design in bold new directions. One of their inventions, Softwall, is a flexible partition prefabricated from several hundred thin layers of soft, translucent paper or polyethylene nonwoven textile. Next week writer Janet Collins will introduce this flexible partition that can be set up anywhere to alter the space of a room on a whim.
