    BUILDING AN IGLOO

    The igloo, also spelled "iglu," and sometimes called an aputiak, is a temporary winter shelter built by native Eskimos primarily for use in winter hunting camps. In their native language, Eskimos call themselves Inuit, meaning "the people." They inhabit much of the Arctic from as far west as the Aleutian Islands of Alaska to as far east as the western coastline of Greenland. — Published 2007.1212

    GROWING A FARMHOUSE

    The 1829 Jacob Yoder farmhouse in the rolling hills of eastern Pennsylvania is crafted from the materials that surround it: fieldstone, pine, and oak. The patient hands of time have turned the pine floors amber and the stone walls a color wheel of earth tones. The house is one with the land and history, which is precisely why the owners, two refugees from Manhattan, bought it. — Published 2007.1031

    TACOMA NARROWS NUMBER THREE

    Does your project require special equipment to convey structural steel on site and into position? Maybe big trucks with oversize loads, and special cranes. But have you ever commissioned a flatbed ship for placing steel? — Published 2007.0905

    VIRGINIA ARENA

    When designing the new basketball arena for the University of Virginia, local Charlottesville firm VMDO Architects had two significant legacies to uphold.

    First there was the celebrated campus, originally designed by Thomas Jefferson, and symbolized by the Pantheon-inspired Rotunda (circa 1826) and the extensive green Lawn upon which it sits. The university grounds were the first in America to be centered upon a library (then housed in the Rotunda) rather than a church. — Published 2007.0718

    POLSHEK'S KAHN YALE GALLERY RESTORATION

    The Yale University Art Gallery, designed by Louis Kahn, reopened a few months ago after a three-year restoration and rejuvenation by Polshek Partnership Architects, working with a team of experts in restoration, exhibit design, and other specialties. The result brings the building back very close to the way Kahn envisioned it when it was completed in 1953. — Published 2007.0613

    DETERMINING SHENZHEN

    It is a historical fact that with economic transition comes environmental change. Perhaps there is no greater influence on the physical environment than the rapid industrial and economic development of towns and cities.

    This occurred in Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries, during the Industrial Revolution. Transportation innovations like the train and later the car encouraged a physical and psychological detachment between the home and workplace, leading to an expansion of residential and commercial districts into rural pastures. — Published 2007.0530

    FIELD GUIDE TO SPRAWL

    Words such as "city," "suburb," and "countryside" no longer capture the reality of real estate development in the United States. Most Americans inhabit complex metropolitan landscapes layered with tracts, strips, malls, office parks, and highways. Widespread dissatisfaction with speculative building has provoked many critiques, but precise terms to define the physical elements of sprawl are often missing. — Published 2007.0502
