    PRESERVING DOO-WOP

    Visitors to Wildwood cross a bridge from the New Jersey mainland to the island beach resort and step back about 50 years. Rows of small-scale, multicolored motels sit beside swimming pools and copious bright green plastic palm trees. Beaming over the motels are oversized neon signs in pink, green, yellow, and blue. — Published 2001.1017

    ENVIRONMENTAL REFUGE

    The new Cusano Environmental Education Center sends a message from its wetlands setting near Philadelphia: that environmentally sound construction can be attractive and not necessarily expensive.

    The center is an oasis on a site that could be an environmentalist's nightmare. The John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge is the most urban refuge in the United States, with giant jets from the nearby Philadelphia International Airport buzzing overhead. — Published 2001.0418

    Each teenager teamed with a designer. At the end of the day, the students coordinated their efforts with that of the others. Later that month, their ideas became a reality. — Published 2000.1220

    REAL DILEMMA FOR TIFFANY DREAM GARDEN

    Where does architecture end and interior art begin? In Philadelphia this question revolves around The Dream Garden, a mural designed by the Tiffany Studios in 1916. It was installed in the headquarters of The Curtis Publishing Company which had been designed by architect Edgar Seeler in 1910. The mural's fate now hinges on whether it is entitled to the same protections as historic architecture under the strong local historic preservation code. — Published 2000.1018

    NEW APPROACHES TO LABORATORY DESIGN

    The dark, smelly laboratories where scientists worked in isolation behind closed doors will soon be relegated to horror movies as science centers build increasingly elaborate facilities to compete for top researchers and grant money.

    An important design factor realized in 21st century labs is their open, inviting feel with work stations lit by natural light beaming through large windows. Another component is the absence of permanent walls, recognizing that scientific work is done in teams. — Published 2000.0802

    RITZY PRESERVATION SAVES PHILADELPHIA LANDMARK

    About 97 years ago, the Girard Trust Bank commissioned the New York firm of McKim, Mead and White to construct a monumental new facility in Philadelphia near the City Hall.
