    DELFT MEDIA LIBRARY

    Durability through transformation. That was the architects' vision for the DOK Library Concept Center in Delft, the Netherlands.

    The multimedia library occupies part of the overhauled Hoogovenpand, a 1970s mixed-use building facing a public square. Architects Liesbeth van der Pol of Dok architects (no relation) and Aat Vos of Aequo BV revitalized the gloomy building, creating the library space among existing commercial and residential functions. — Published 2009.0128

    HOUSE ON RED HILL

    The abstract expressionist painter Robert Motherwell once said, "Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it." Those words convey the inspiration behind much of the work of Christopher Harty and Chris Botterill. — Published 2007.0411

    ELEMENTARY AURORA

    New schools are springing up across the United States with design that doesn't go "by the book." These schools for grades Kindergarten through 12 are responding to meet new community demands or simply to replace aged facilities.

    Forty-five percent of the nation's elementary schools were built between 1950 and 1969, according to ZweigWhite, a market research firm. And enrollment in public K-12 schools will continue to rise through 2012, predicts the National Center for Education Statistics. — Published 2006.1213

    WHO CARES?

    The U.S. Gulf coast is struggling to rebuild after several 2005 hurricanes destroyed countless homes, businesses, and lives. Yet as the 2006 hurricane season gets underway, much of the region is still in ruins. — Published 2006.0628

    PATAGONIAN LUXURIES

    An exotic location like Chilean Patagonia demands an exotic hotel. Hotel Remota's design draws from the dazzling explosion of islands, glaciers, icebergs, and mountains on this southern tip of South America.

    Inspired by Patagonian sheep farm buildings, Hotel Remota offers warm interiors to shield visitors from the wind and cold. A central courtyard introduces visitors to the Patagonian wilderness: except for a few large boulders, the plaza is empty, but full of suggestion. — Published 2006.0405

    HOUSE BY UNIT A

    Nestled on the edge of a town in southwest Germany is the Fleischmann House. Its owner, a photographer, craved open, visually quiet surroundings to counteract the visual bombardment of his profession. One-third studio, two-thirds open-plan dwelling, the house is a sustainable abode flavored by Japanese tradition.

    The building plan is rectangular. Maki Kuwayama, of unit a architects, describes both the exterior architecture and interior design as "simple and clean... not so much a style as a lifestyle choice." — Published 2006.0222

    GULF SOUTH STRUGGLES

    As yet another record-breaking and devastating hurricane season draws toward its close, we are still far from a final assessment of damage from Katrina, the most costly natural disaster in U.S. history, or from Rita, the subsequent multibillion-dollar storm. — Published 2005.1102

    WHERE PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

    Blacksmithing is such a fundamental craft that in French, the familiar proverb, "practice makes perfect," takes the form, "c'est en forgeant qu'on devient forgeron," or literally in English, "it's by forging that one becomes a blacksmith." Editor — Published 2005.1005

    SMALLER CHEAPER BETTER SCHOOL

    Do students learn better in smaller environments? A growing number of educators and architects think so, and in Federal Way, Washington, a few of them have created a school that reflects this conviction. Harry S. Truman High School is flexible enough to accommodate the "smaller is better" approach to education and innovative enough to win top honors from the Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI). — Published 2005.0824

    BUILDING HURRICANE SURVIVAL

    It's a hurricane season in the Caribbean region that will go down in the record books as one of the worst ever. And, as of this writing in early October 2004, it's far from over. With another six weeks left in an already devastating season, the design and construction industry is facing a daunting job of rebuilding. — Published 2004.1006
