    BASICS - STAIRS, RAMPS, AND SLOPES

    Stairs, ramps, and slopes are specific types of flooring assemblies that join two or more different levels.

    Their design is guided, in part, by larger design intentions that involve human movement through space, along with scale, location, orientation, wayfinding strategies, and their contextual fit within the immediate and surrounding environment. — Published 2012.0418

    PALLADIO AWARDS 2011

    Hurricanes were a primary concern for Michael G. Imber Architects when the firm designed a traditionally styled home for the new Beachtown development in Galveston, Texas.

    Located on the Gulf of Mexico, the vacation-home development combines New Urbanist architecture and planning with systematic fortification against the fierce storms. — Published 2011.0608

    POSTCARD FROM STUTTGART

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    When I first arrived at the Akademie Schloss Solitude near Stuttgart, Germany, I was struck by a flamboyant baroque and rococo construction. From a tree-lined avenue, one sees the cream-cake-like layering of arches and ornament of the Solitude Palace, commissioned by Herzog Karl Eugen between 1763 and 1767. Today, 30 artists and architects are in residence at the academy. — Published 2005.0525

    POSTCARD FROM OVIEDO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    With its 263-foot- (80-meter-) high spire visible from most parts of town, La Catedral de Oviedo serves as a city symbol and directional landmark in the heart of Oviedo, Spain (not to be confused with Orvieto, Italy!). The cathedral stands on one side of a historic square with government buildings lining the other sides. The street is closed to motor vehicles, but is always busy with pedestrians. The church continues to hold services and is a popular site for weddings and baptisms. — Published 2004.0818

    JUVARRA IN TURIN

    The Duke of Savoy was in search of an architect to help him transform the city of Turin in the Italian Piedmont. The duke wanted his capital to be a modern, successful city of his Late Baroque period, that would show that the powerful House of Savoy stood at the forefront of world architecture. — Published 2003.1029

    FROM VERNACULAR TO MODERN IN SWEDEN

    The history of architecture in Sweden over the last four centuries is one of "functionalistic eclecticism," with traditions borrowed from other cultures, molded by national politics, and blended into uniquely Swedish form.

    Sweden's traditional building culture was anonymous, exemplified by the Bjoerkvik storehouse, a nobleman's showpiece. But in the 1600s, Sweden began to fight its way to a position of international influence that spurred huge architectural ambitions. The traditional artistry continued and coexisted with high-profile architecture. — Published 2003.0507

    TWO CITIES OF NICARAGUA

    For much of the 19th century, two conflicting political groups contested for power in Nicaragua: the liberals, based in the northwestern city of León, and the conservatives, based in Granada to the south. The country's capital rotated between the two cities, shifting with changes in power, whether by elections or by war. — Published 2003.0305

    LIVABILITY PARIS STYLE

    Breaking away from the modern mistakes of mass urbanization and heirs to a vast classical architectural tradition, the French are perhaps well placed to tackle the challenges facing the city and to invent a habitable, livable world, in short, a human one. — Frédéric Edelmann, Le Monde, 2001 — Published 2003.0122

    HISTORIC FRENCH STYLE

    The 18th century is thought by some to be the most elegant era in European history, with French furniture from this period singled out for praise. Oblivious to the political and social turmoil that once surrounded it, French furniture radiates luxury and commands a loyal following among antique dealers, decorators, and collectors who appreciate fine craftsmanship and have the means to buy it. — Published 2002.0522
