    EERO AND ONWARD

    On a December day of 1955, fresh over from Paris, I walked into the small Eero Saarinen office in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, with a beat-up box of eight-by-tens of my Beaux-Arts graduation work. "Can I see Mr. Saarinen? I'm looking for a job." He did see me, and having reviewed my prints, asked whether I could start that very afternoon for $2.75 an hour pay. I did. — Published 2008.0730

    AIA/HUD SECRETARY AWARDS

    Where a failed urban housing project once stood, enclosed and separated from its surrounding neighborhood in San Francisco's Mission District, the mixed-use Valencia Gardens development now supports an integrated neighborhood designed to promote safety through activity.

    Architect Van Meter Williams Pollack LLP, with associate architect Martinez Architects, Inc., lined the sidewalk with building entries and reintroduced vehicular streets into the site, connecting it with the urban fabric. — Published 2008.0730

    ART IN BEIJING

    With Beijing hosting the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the Chinese government has sought, like a typical Olympic host, to make a statement about the country's progress. In China's case, this has included some ambitious and high-profile architecture projects, such as Herzog & de Meuron's spectacular bird's-nest-like National Stadium. — Published 2008.0716

    GREAT PUBLIC MARKETS

    The activity of buying and selling food has shaped our cities and towns for centuries, since an urban population by nature depends on others for agricultural production. At the heart of this activity stands the public market the buildings and spaces in which vegetables, meat, and other commodities intended for human consumption are sold by diverse persons from numerous spaces or stalls, all under a common authority. — Published 2008.0709
