    Seldom do skyscrapers succeed simultaneously on the skyline and at the curbstone. The typical goal of a tall building is to make an impact on the city as seen from a distance — to be an architectural monument in space.

    The new Devon Energy headquarters in downtown Oklahoma City is certainly a potent landmark on the skyline; cab drivers from the airport enjoy pointing it out with a dose of civic pride.

    Approaching the new Lane Community College (LCC) Downtown Center in Eugene, Oregon, you're greeted by a huge planar screen of vertical glass tubes suspended above the building entrance, partially shading the glazed southern facade of its atrium.

    The screen is a thermal collector array for the center's domestic hot water system, hinting that the new campus satellite, including academic and student housing buildings, was created with a focus on sustainability.

    New materials and building technologies have been allied with challenges to conventional social habit, while the rugged terrain, lush vegetation, and benign climate have provided a profound measure to the artifice of design.
