    GREEN BUILDING SCHOOL

    At the University of Florida in Gainesville, the new home for the School of Building Construction is setting an example for sustainability on campus. Rinker Hall has achieved a "gold" LEED rating from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). Its success has raised the bar for this university's new buildings which will now be expected to meet or exceed LEED silver standards. — Published 2005.0309

    YALE CENTER FOR BRITISH ART

    The Yale Center for British Art, in New Haven, Connecticut, is considered to be among the finest structures of noted architect Louis I. Kahn. Begun in 1973, one year before his death, and opened to the public in 1977, the museum was built to house the most comprehensive collection of British art outside the United Kingdom. — Published 2005.0302

    PSYCHOLOGICALLY ACCESSIBLE

    Any visit to a hospital or clinic can seem frightening, all the more so for children afflicted with autism. The slightest distraction, even something as seemingly benign as a water fountain or a beam of sunlight, can trigger a "meltdown," in which autistic patients are overcome with anxiety. — Published 2005.0119

    GEHRY AT MIT

    The latest installment in a billion-dollar construction program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has just opened on the Cambridge campus, and it's unlike anything else MIT has ever built.

    The Ray and Maria Stata Center, designed by Frank Gehry, is a rambling collage of odds and ends that now houses three MIT departments: the Computer Sciences and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems, and the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy. — Published 2004.0623

    LIBESKIND IN LONDON

    The new, modestly sized Graduate Centre for London Metropolitan University is the first permanent building in London by Daniel Libeskind. It's not a glamorous commission compared to his World Trade Center project in New York, nor does it have a particularly beautiful or meaningful site, as does his Jewish Museum in Berlin. — Published 2004.0526

    B.C. CAMPUS COMPOSITE

    In the realm of mixed-use developments, certain mixes of use have become commonplace: office and retail; housing and schools; cultural and entertainment facilities. But a new complex for Surrey, British Columbia, Canada has drawn attention by combining an unlikely pair: a regional shopping mall and a campus for a major university. — Published 2004.0414

    CLASSICAL PORPHYRIOS PRIZED

    In an age when modern and "post-modern" buildings compete for attention, a London-based architect has made a name for himself designing buildings that might have come down from antiquity.

    Demetri Porphyrios, both a practicing architect and a theorist, is known for his design of traditional and classical forms. He has recently been awarded the second annual Richard H. Driehaus Prize for Classical Architecture from the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture. — Published 2004.0310

    DANCES WITH BUILDING

    Three years ago, when a father and his daughter were looking at colleges and evaluating dance programs, they visited the University of Arizona in Tucson. There they discovered one of the country's best dance programs with one of the worst facilities. The man offered to donate funds for a new dance theater if the university and its College of Fine Arts would each match his gift. The result: the new Stevie Eller Dance Theatre. — Published 2004.0204

    TOTALLY TUBULAR KOOLHAAS

    As a commuter train roars into a college campus in Chicago, its noise is suddenly muffled when it enters a stainless steel tunnel that sits atop the new student center. The tube and the building below it are the work of Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and his firm, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). The school is the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT), still bearing the stamp of its mid-20th century modernist origins. — Published 2003.1119

    YALE'S SOUND RENOVATION

    In renovating a historic concert hall, it can be a tricky balancing act to improve both thermal comfort and hall acoustics while respecting the traditional character of the original building. At Yale University's School of Music, Canadian architects Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg, teaming with acoustical consultants Kirkegaard Associates, have succeeded in achieving this balance. — Published 2003.1029
