    POSTCARD FROM HAVANA

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The young architect Maikel Menenioz Gonzalez was awakened by an unexpected telephone call at 1 a.m. and instructed to be ready in ten minutes for a project interview. Fidel Castro had just received word that his negotiations with the U.S. government for the return of Elian Gonzalez had been thwarted by the boy's relatives in Miami. — Published 2001.0314

    TO DESIGN AN ENDURING MUSEUM

    When the doors open at the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., people are already lined up, waiting to get in. This is because effective interpretive design motivates people to discover meaning. In a world where nearly everything is for sale, genuinely meaningful experiences are rare commodities. In fact, they are priceless. — Published 2001.0314

    BUILDING HERTITAGE IN BRNO

    In the heart of Europe, Brno is proud of its architectural reminders of the past, many of which are being revitalized today. Modernist buildings of the 1920s and 30s, including the Tugendhadt Villa by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, are receiving renewed international attention and inspiring new construction. — Published 2001.0307

    POSTCARD FROM ATHENS

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    If you think of Athens as the once-upon-a time capital of the classical world, you may be surprised to find out that after the fall of the ancient Greek civilization, the "city" dwindled at one point to a village of about 400 individuals. — Published 2001.0228

    BRUCE GOFF COMES TO REST AMONG PEERS

    In a 20-month project that culminated in October 2000, Seattle architect Grant Gustafson, AIA took responsibility for the disposition of the remains of the late Bruce Goff eighteen years after the death of the unique teacher and self-taught, iconoclastic architect.

    Gustafson designed a marker, secured funding for it and a burial plot, and brought together Goff aficionados to pay a tribute to the master as he was laid among other greats of 20th century architecture. — Published 2001.0228

    THE THEATERS OF HARDY HOLZMAN PFEIFFER ASSOCIATES

    The wisest thing ever said to me about the connection between the theater and architecture was a teacher's offhand remark that architecture didn't matter at all. "The greatest theater is done in a barn, not in a palace," he said.

    I was astonished. I was an eager high school student studying theater for the summer at a local college; architecture and theater were my two loves, and it seemed inconceivable to me that these worlds were not mutually dependent. — Published 2001.0207
