    U.S. HISTORIC SITES IN PERIL

    An art deco highrise in eastern Mississippi continues to deteriorate, as does one of the last remaining Negro League baseball stadiums, in New Jersey. A 1,300-year-old cultural site in Guam is threatened by U.S. Navy construction plans, and the character of Connecticut's scenic Merritt Parkway is at risk. — Published 2010.0623

    THE REVOLVING VILLA

    "I have decided to make the complete turn."

    Euphoric over seeing his still under-construction house rotate its planned 180 degrees for the first time, the Italian civil engineer Angelo Invernizzi quickly wrote a colleague that the final version had to go all the way around. — Published 2009.0715

    POSTCARD FROM SAN FRANCISCO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The exhibition Art Deco 1910-1939 has opened at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and will be on view until July 4, 2004. Although entire buildings cannot be brought into the museum, the exhibit successfully captures the essence of the deco style through films, drawings, furniture, models, posters, and reconstructed rooms. — Published 2004.0414

    ART DECO PHOENIX

    The City of Phoenix, Arizona may be admired for its maverick spirit and the beauty of the surrounding desert. But this sprawling city of more than 350 square miles (900 square kilometers) has never been known for high-density living. The residential redevelopment known as Orpheum Lofts, however, sets a more urban example. — Published 2003.1015

    GREEN ROOF RETROFIT

    The 1925 art deco-style Montgomery Ward Catalog Building in Baltimore, Maryland has just undergone a rehabilitation. The adaptive reuse project by DMJMH+N, an architecture/ engineering firm in Washington D.C., restored the facade of the landmark building and installed a 30,000-square foot (2800-square-meter) "green" roof. — Published 2003.0409

    LEVIN AND LOS ANGELES

    In the early 1980s, Brenda Levin was one of the chief engineers of a collective epiphany that the city of the perennial future had a past. Fresh from Harvard's Graduate School of Design, she was the right architect in the right spot at the right moment to restore a succession of historic buildings in Los Angeles. — Published 2003.0108

    ART DECO SOUTH BEACH

    The historic "art deco" district of South Beach, in Miami, Florida, is arguably one of the most successful urban restoration projects in the history of American architecture. Hundreds of buildings have been restored to their early 20th-century appearance. — Published 2002.1030

    A CONCERT HALL RESTORED

    Severance Hall, although a beautiful 1930s-vintage neo-classical building, was less well known than its primary occupant: the Cleveland Orchestra, conducted for many years by George Szell. Over time, the world-class symphony grew in fame, while the building suffered from a series of misguided "renovations." — Published 2000.1018
