    IN MEMORIUM

    On behalf of everyone at ArchitectureWeek, and the entire extended design and building community, I want to express our deepest sympathies to all the victims of Monday's tragedy in the Blue Ridge Mountains, at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, shattered by the twisted violence of a broken soul: stricken survivors, families, friends, witnesses, associates.
