    A BETTER SUBURBIA

    Visiting "Village Homes" for the first time, one is struck by how different this 1970s-era community looks from typical California developments. Arriving by car, one notices narrower streets and less visually dominant parking, with access kept to the edges along long, narrow cul-de-sac streets. — Published 2005.0119

    POSTCARD FROM LELYSTAD

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Sporting a striking new glass "climate zone" at its front entrance, the Tjalk shopping center is a new asset to the commons in Lelystad, the Netherlands. The open space of the entryway provides a smooth transition from the street while expressing some history of the building as well. — Published 2005.0105

    TEN DAY THEATER

    How do you create a temporary theater on a miniscule budget? And make sure that the construction materials will be undamaged and reusable at the end of the performance space's ten-day life? One way is to start with a vacant warehouse and add plenty of ingenuity, generosity, and collaboration. — Published 2004.1208

    RECOVERING KINGSDALE

    The refurbishment of a dilapidated 50-year-old secondary school in a London suburb has set a number of significant benchmarks for school design in the United Kingdom. The project has lifted concepts of roof design to new heights with what may be the first "variable membrane" roof in the world. — Published 2004.1103

    BUILDING HURRICANE SURVIVAL

    It's a hurricane season in the Caribbean region that will go down in the record books as one of the worst ever. And, as of this writing in early October 2004, it's far from over. With another six weeks left in an already devastating season, the design and construction industry is facing a daunting job of rebuilding. — Published 2004.1006

    BUILDING LIBRARY SECURITY

    The public library tends to present an inherent security contradiction. Precious people and objects need to be safe within, yet they also need to come and go often, easily, and appropriately. Editor — Published 2004.0908

    RECYCLING GETS CONCRETE

    A lot of attention has been given recently to the reuse of building materials rescued from demolition sites. Of course, some materials are more reusable than others. In some places, it has become quite fashionable to install century-old doors and windows or entire buildings nicks, stains, and all. — Published 2004.0811

    SHOW HOUSE CUBED

    In Gurgaon, India, a fast-growing suburb of Delhi, an unusual house has just been erected. Designed by architect Ganesh Ganapathy, the building is a glass cube seemingly balanced on one vertex. Its uniqueness is admired by neighbors and passers-by, but working out the details of fitting a functional, stable house into such a form proved a formidable challenge. — Published 2004.0728

    PRINTED PLASTIC PLACES

    "Mass customization," contradictory though it may sound, has been successfully achieved in various niches of the manufacturing world for several years. The term refers to products coming off an assembly line that have been individually configured according to customer specifications. The same combination of customization and economy of mass production may be coming to architecture. — Published 2004.0714

    SMALL WOODWORKING SHOPS

    There is no perfect workshop. Any image conjured up by one woodworker would probably be less than ideal for the next. There are, however, many wonderful shops. Contemporary American woodworkers share a common cultural heritage with a nation of resourceful settlers who made do with what could be patched together. — Published 2004.0623
