    AUTODESK GOES CONCEPTUAL

    For two decades, as mainstream software for architects has gradually increased its ability to support design development and construction document production, one phase of design has proved more elusive to software providers.

    What has been relatively lacking in the digital realm is support for conceptual design, an activity typically carried out in a fast-paced, personal "conversation" between a designer and a series of sketches, through the medium of soft pencil on paper. — Published 2002.0508

    NEW HOME FOR OLD PHOTOS

    Last year, the American Academy in Rome moved its valuable photographic archive to a newly renovated villa built in the early 1920s. The challenge for Studio Abbate & Vigevano, the architects designing the villa's renovation, was to create a delightful, daylit interior while protecting the delicate negatives from heat and humidity. They call the result a "minimalist model of sustainable architecture." — Published 2002.0417

    MIDWEST FARM STYLE

    What better to welcome visitors to a working 1890s farmstead than an exhibit hall suggesting traditional forms. With an economy reminiscent of 19th-century Illinois farm life, the Chicago firm of Teng & Associates, Inc. has designed a barn-like structure for Kline Creek Farm . The new visitors center has an outward appearance appropriate for the historic farm context, but on closer inspection it reveals modern construction techniques and sensibilities. — Published 2002.0227

    SUSTAINABILITY WORKSHOP

    Along with the recent surge in knowledge about, and adoption of, sustainability practices has come a realization that senior staff in architecture firms are confronting topics that scarcely existed when they were in architecture school.

    In some cases, learning new technologies can be assigned to junior staff. But when the topic, like sustainability, is so integrated in the very art and science and business of design, it's time for senior staff to go back to school themselves. — Published 2002.0213

    ACADIA REFLECTS ON 20 YEARS

    Every October, a group of architecture professors, students, and practitioners from around the world meets to reflect on the directions the profession is going with computer technologies.

    These thinkers gather to decipher the effect of digital media on education and practice and to explore new options through their research. This year they met at the State University of New York at Buffalo, under the leadership of Wassim Jabi, who also edited the published proceedings, Re-inventing the Discourse. — Published 2001.1031

    OFFICE INFILL TREADS LIGHTLY

    The BP Amoco Research Center posed several challenges to its architects. The client wanted the 40-building campus to have a new corporate identity expressed in a high-profile marker at its entrance. Three existing buildings needed to be connected through a central circulation space. And to keep costs down, the addition needed to impose minimum disruption on the existing structure. — Published 2001.1024

    PENTAGON BATTERED BUT FIRM

    On September 11, when an American Airlines Boeing 757 crashed into the Pentagon, home of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), about 20,000 people were at work in this, the largest office building in the world. Yet according to the DoD casualty update on October 1, only 125 Pentagon employees were killed along with the 64 from the fated airliner. — Published 2001.1003

    ART TO GO WITH ARRIS

    There's no longer any question that large architectural projects call for sophisticated computer-aided design systems for their execution. But sometimes very small projects do too.

    As recently demonstrated in the new San Francisco Museum of Modern Art store at the San Francisco International Airport, a top-of-the-line design system can work very well to control the design quality and cost of a small architectural gem. — Published 2001.0905

    CHIEF AT SEA RANCH

    On the rugged Northern California coast stands a unique, decades-old development called Sea Ranch. Buildings there have always been designed according to strict design guidelines that keep development clustered and rooflines compatible with the wind-swept bluffs.

    Architects who continue the Sea Ranch creative tradition accept these restrictions. One of them, Michael Wike, AIA, has learned to make his CAD software of choice, Chief Architect, from ART, Inc., adapt to his design style. — Published 2001.0815

    DOING UNIVERSAL DESIGN

    CD-ROM Review: Universal Design Exemplars by the Center for Universal Design, North Carolina State University, 2000.

    A Japanese garden pond with the lily pads within anyone's reach; a rustic log cabin fully accessible to wheelchair users; a museum exhibit that tells its story through touch and sound. These are a few of the recently published examples of the principles of universal design. — Published 2001.0801
