    PORTLAND CELEBRATES ARCHITECTURE

    Once a year, in many American cities, architects set aside a week to celebrate the built environment and to share their passion for it with the general public. This so-called "Architecture Week," (no relation to the on-line magazine) also gives the profession an opportunity to further its own education and to honor peers for their accomplishments. — Published 2000.1025

    HIGH-TECH WINDOWS COULD SAVE ENERGY

    A window is one of the most complex components in a building. It gives us light, views, fresh air, and the sun's warmth. Yet at times trying to balance these benefits works against the goals of comfort and energy savings. Having too few windows deprives workers of psychologically important vistas and increases the need for electric lighting. But too much direct sunlight can cause glare and increase the cooling load. And the delicate balance among all these factors changes throughout the day and year. — Published 2000.1004

    ONCE AND FUTURE GRAPHICS PIONEER, PART II

    The Program of Computer Graphics (PCG) at Cornell University, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, continues to set the highest standards for innovation in architectural design technology. Director Donald P. Greenberg has led the program since its founding in 1974. — Published 2000.0920

    ONCE AND FUTURE GRAPHICS PIONEER

    In the glitzy world of computer-generated visualizations that dominate movies and magazines today, it's easy to take for granted the photographic quality that architects are able to give their renderings of proposed buildings.

    But behind the scenes, there have been have been four decades of grueling, dedicated, and inspired research to make possible these synthetic images that are indistinguishable from photographs. — Published 2000.0913

    FUN WITH COMPUTER-AIDED MODELING CLAY

    One hundred years ago, Spanish architect Antonio Gaudi was astonishing the world with sculpturally creative, irregular, organic forms. While others in the profession worked with straight edges, Gaudi invented his own methods for modeling parabolic arches from the catenary curve created by suspending a length of chain between two points. — Published 2000.0816

    SCALE MODELS FROM THIN AIR

    Some day in the next millennium, architects may be able to put design information into a machine that will automatically construct a complete building. Hints of this distant future are visible in the experiments of Japanese construction companies, in which robots assemble building components in the field. Already the idea is being implemented, albeit at a much smaller scale, with a new family of technologies called rapid prototyping. This enables designers to build physical models directly and automatically from 3D computer models. — Published 2000.0802

    CASHING IN ON ENERGY-SENSITIVE DESIGN

    Imagine a future in which architects and builders do well by doing good. When they devote time to carefully integrating all the energy-related systems in a building; when the resulting efficiency dramatically decreases our dependence on imported oil; and when the triumphant designers are gratefully rewarded with significantly higher design fees. — Published 2000.0705

    SYSTEMS 2000 HOSTS TECHNOLOGY PANOPLY

    The biggest attention getters at this year's A/E/C SYSTEMS Show may have been the project extranet companies and CAD systems, but there were plenty of other interesting products on display. These serve the construction industry in areas as diverse as presentations, structural analysis, team communications, job site reporting, and legal documentation. — Published 2000.0628

    TURNING TODAY'S RESEARCH INTO TOMORROW'S SOFTWARE

    Over the past four weeks, a series of articles in ArchitectureWeek has looked at four examples of university research projects that may some day become commonplace design tools for architects. Each of the four demonstrates a narrowly focused capability that is desirable but missing from current practice. — Published 2000.0628
