    In Memoriam

    by Kevin Matthews

    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.

    [an error occurred while processing this directive]

    Saturated, overflowing, or washed distantly with grief, all who know of this tragedy are touched through with its sadness.

    As part of the community of architecture, engineering, and construction, we want to give some special attention to these past and future colleagues lost:
