    ASU POLYTECHNIC GREEN

    The new academic complex on the Polytechnic campus of Arizona State University (ASU) was built to withstand the insistent, erosive forces of the desert around Mesa, Arizona.

"It requires a durable architecture which we call 'desert tough.'" — Published 2009.0422

The residential redevelopment known as Orpheum Lofts, however, sets a more urban example. — Published 2003.1015
