    801 17TH STREET IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

    Developer Louis Dreyfus Property Group, now Property Group Partners (PGP), had high goals for its 801 17th Street building, strategically located a block from the White House and Lafayette Park. — Published 2012.0620

    PETER BOHLIN - AIA GOLD MEDAL

    On New York's Fifth Avenue, people approach the Apple Store's glass cube, often first walk around it, then enter and descend by the glass stairs to the below-ground showroom. This store is not only the icon for Apple Inc., but also an exemplar of the architecture of Peter Bohlin: it is an original statement, powerful yet minimalist, that enhances its surroundings and respects the human scale while creating an invigorating sense of movement, pulling in shoppers and spectators in staggering numbers, 24 hours a day. — Published 2010.0414

    NEWSEUM BY POLSHEK

    The Newseum building by Polshek Partnership Architects adds vitality and a sense of time and place to Pennsylvania Avenue, a street that, like so many important streets in Washington, D.C., had been devoid of movement and three-dimensionality in massing.

    A museum about news, the aptly named Newseum moved from across the Potomac River, in Arlington, Virginia, where it had outgrown its space. Its parent organization, the Freedom Forum, sought a location more heavily frequented by tourists. — Published 2008.0903

    HEARST TOWER

    Pritzker Prize laureate Norman Foster is a master of levitating buildings of dubious design, treatment, or association to the pantheon of architectural icons. The Hearst Tower in Manhattan, which he designed in collaboration with architects Adamson Associates and Gensler, is the most recent example of this resuscitation.

    The 42-story glass- and metal-skinned tower is characterized by a large diagonal grid, emphasized by vertically alternating recessed and projecting multistory corner triangles. — Published 2007.0523

    SWISS AMBASSADOR’S RESIDENCE

    The most unusual buildings in the U.S. capital city are often those erected by foreign governments for their embassies. Some are insipid interpretations of a country's architectural traditions. Others are inspired efforts to combine the best of a country's past architecture with cutting-edge trends. — Published 2007.0110

    NAVY TEMPLE

    In addition to the usual challenges facing an architect designing a synagogue, Joseph Boggs confronted a few special ones at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. Any contemporary U.S. synagogue designer has to create a sanctuary large enough to hold the High Holiday full house while creating a space that still feels intimate when mostly empty during the weekly services. — Published 2006.0503

    PRIZING CONTRASTS

    Twice in recent months, the National Building Museum in Washington D.C. has hosted a ceremony to honor a tireless international leader in the public promotion of architectural ideals. The prestigious Vincent Scully Prize went to Prince Charles of Great Britain and to Phyllis Lambert, founder of the Canadian Centre for Architecture. — Published 2006.0308

    POSTCARD FROM CHICAGO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    On January 6th, 2006, Pilgrim Baptist Church suffered extensive fire damage to its architecturally significant interior. From news photographs it appears that only the shell remains. Although best known for its association with gospel music of the early 20th century, the 1891 building held an important place in architectural history. It was designed by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan as the Kehilath Anshe Ma'ariv Synagogue during a period in which Frank Lloyd Wright worked for their firm. — Published 2006.0111

    BALTIMORE BERYL

    The 179-year-old Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) is one of the cultural gems of Baltimore, a city that seldom receives the recognition it deserves for its rhythmic 19th-century classical architecture, occasionally edgy 20th-century modernism, and outstanding cultural and educational institutions. — Published 2006.0111

    150 YEARS OF SMITHGROUP

    The Detroit-based SmithGroup turns 150 this year, making it the oldest architecture firm in the United States. It is also the country's fifth largest, according to a 2002 report from Building Design & Construction. A look back at past successes and recent innovations — such as in the McNamara Terminal and Chesapeake Bay Foundation headquarters — and a look ahead to projects still on the boards demonstrate that the SmithGroup continues to reinvent itself. — Published 2003.0806
