    POSTCARD FROM PUCON

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Traveling in southern Chile recently, I was delighted to discover a lovely hotel in Pucon. Situated on a steep wooded hill overlooking Lago Villarica, the Hotel Antumalal is more than a hotel; it is an architectural experience. With a backdrop of snowcapped mountains, the small intimate hotel is surrounded by acres of beautiful gardens. — Published 2007.0523

    POSTCARD FROM SHIZUKUISHI

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    While traveling in Japan, I attended a Mochi Maki event in Shizukuishi, a small town of 20,000 in Iwate prefecture, northern Honshu. Mochi Maki is a rice-ball throwing event held during the construction of new buildings in Japan. An altar is set up within the building, and friends of the owners are invited to participate in a prayer ceremony conducted by a Shinto priest. During the service, the gods are invited to be present during the construction and occupancy of the building. — Published 2005.0810

    TOWERING WITH ARCHICAD

    When completed, the 90-story Eureka Tower in Melbourne, Australia will be the tallest residential building in the world, rising 985 feet (300 meters) above street level. The builder, Grocon Pty. Ltd., takes pride that this large-scale venture is right on schedule. The construction firm attributes their efficient communications to the decision by Fender Katsalidis Architects (FKAU) to use object-oriented architectural design software. — Published 2003.0226

    VISUALIZING ARCHITECTURE

    In just 18 months, Andrea Starkey has revolutionized the way she creates architectural visualizations. For years, she had relied on pen-and-ink and watercolor to create renderings for builders, architects, and local home shows. But as computer technology improved, she began looking for ways to speed up the rendering process. — Published 2002.0410

    LIGHTING THE SCENE IN NORWAY

    In Norway, the Land of the Northern Lights, a small computer graphics company is wowing clients with dazzling visualizations and photographic lighting simulations. Since its inception, the company has relied primarily on the Lightscape rendering system.

    The visualization firm, curiously named Placebo Effects, is partly owned by the large company Dark-Gruppen, whose divisions provide a range of design consulting services. Placebo Effects provides computer graphics services to Dark-Architects and others in the Norwegian design and architecture community. — Published 2001.1205
