    SYDNEY BISTRO

    When a restaurant opens adjacent to a theater lobby, one might expect a dramatic play of lights and space. Indeed, designers with the Australian architecture firm PTW have served up a class act with their Hickson Road Bistro at Walsh Bay, Sydney. The space works equally well during the day and at night, but it's the after-dark performance of color and light that arts patrons won't want to miss. — Published 2004.0505

    HONG KONG'S NEW TALLEST

    The second tower for the International Finance Centre, new headquarters for the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, perches near the narrowest crossing of the beautiful Victoria Harbour and marks a new gateway to the city. The so-called "Two ifc," at Central Waterfront is said to be the world's third-highest building and the safest highrise completed since September 11, 2001. — Published 2004.0421

    UNCONVENTIONALLY COLORFUL

    In case the city of Montréal, Québec needed a kickstart into the 21st century, it certainly has one now. The colorful expansion of the Palais des Congrès doubles the size of the existing convention center and puts the city on notice that sober limestone and granite are being challenged as the urban norm. — Published 2004.0407

    HOME IN STOCKHOLM

    One hundred new apartments in downtown Stockholm may be a hint that urban living is slowly returning to the city's shopping and business district. The mixed-use redevelopment "Klara Zenit" is a transformation of a gloomy 1971 office monolith into a colorful block of apartments, offices, and shops. — Published 2004.0317

    TOMORROW'S PATIENT ROOM

    In the health-care field, change comes quickly as medical technology advances and care-giving methods evolve. This change is reflected in contemporary hospital architecture, perhaps most visibly in patient rooms, where flexible design is critical.

    What will the adaptable patient room of the future be like? That's the question Ellerbe Becket medical planners, architects, interior designers, and engineers set out to answer. — Published 2004.0303

    HOUSING HIGH AND LOW

    Spanish architect Roberto Pérez-Guerras has worked on a diversity of projects since the mid-1970s. He describes his design process as "fueled by the objective of creative imagination as a cultural evolution" and by "the attempt to obtain spaces for cohabitation out of sites whose value has not been realized." Here to illustrate these guiding principles are two very different residential complexes by the firm of Pérez-Guerras. — Editor — Published 2004.0218

    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

    POSTCARD FROM ARMEA DI SANREMO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    We conceived the enlargement of the Armea cemetery as a place where oblivion lives together with memory, and where memory passes gradually from personal to collective. The site is made up of a burial area, an individual ossuary tower, a common ossuary/cinerary, and a service area. — Published 2004.0128

    HOTEL TRESSANTS IN MENORCA

    When Italo Calvino wrote his 1972 novel about magical cities based on places he imagined Marco Polo might have visited, he was probably not thinking specifically of the Spanish island of Menorca (Minorca). — Published 2004.0121

    MANHATTAN INSIDE UPDATES

    Like putting a new engine in a classic car or an updated graphics card in an old computer, a few New York architects are giving high-tech interiors to historic buildings. In each case — car, computer, building — the external appearance of the original can be maintained while its function is upgraded. — Published 2004.0107
