    STIRLING PRIZE FOR ACCORDIA HOUSING

    Pairing sensitively designed housing with generous open space, the architects of Accordia created an enduring residential development in Cambridge, United Kingdom, that embodies the inherent sustainability of livable communities.

    Their careful efforts have earned Accordia the Stirling Prize for 2008. Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios designed the project with Maccreanor Lavington and Alison Brooks Architects. This is the first residential project to receive the prestigious prize, now in its 13th year. — Published 2008.1015

    RESIDENTIAL RECLAMATIONS

    It's a spacious, imposing Los Angeles residence that has a central courtyard with lush vegetation and a cooling fountain. But don't look for palm trees or swimming pools or movie stars — this is no stereotypical Southern California abode. — Published 2008.1008

    OSLO OPERA

    The new Oslo Opera House is a monumental architectural statement for Norway, providing a glamorous new home for the National Opera and Ballet and a striking public plaza overlooking the Oslofjord.

    Instantly shedding opera's snooty, high-art image, the new building by Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta slopes down from the roof to the water's edge. The gleaming-white marble threshold between land and water welcomes hundreds of people on a sunny day. — Published 2008.1008

    BRICK AWARDS 2008

    The Durham County Regional Public Library in Durham, North Carolina, takes advantage of brick for environmental benefit.

    Brick's thermal mass improves the energy efficiency of the LEED Silver-certified facility, helping to keep energy use 35 percent lower than that of comparable conventionally designed buildings. The brick was procured locally, and made from raw materials extracted regionally. — Published 2008.1001

    SHOWER DESIGN FOR AGING IN PLACE

    Customarily, architects, builders, and contractors have designed, specified, and built curbs at shower entrances that require users to pick up their feet and step over and into the shower pan. In some cases, the floor of the shower pan is lower than the floor of the bathroom. — Published 2008.0924

    DESIGNING FABRIC STRUCTURES

    The first step in designing a fabric structure is to create a form with sufficient pre-stress, or tension, to prevent it from fluttering like a flag or sail. Lightweight structures with minimal surfaces optimally should have double curvature — a surface that possesses a high-point (positive) curvature along one principal axis and a low-point (negative) curvature along the other principal axis. — Published 2008.0924

    CURRIER MUSEUM OF ART

    The Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire, reopened its doors in spring 2008 after an expansion designed by Ann Beha Architects. This was both a sympathetic and a very modern expansion, and the results provide quite an elegant increase in the museum's scope. — Published 2008.0917

    AIA HEALTHCARE AWARDS 2008

    At the CHA Women & Children's Hospital near Seoul, a softness of natural light, organic elements, and curving form tempers a sleek building of glass, aluminum, and stainless steel. KMD Architects designed the facility, with associate architect yo2 Architects, to provide uncluttered respite from the surrounding neighborhood's visual noise. — Published 2008.0917

    HOUSES FOR VICTORIANS

    Underlying the almost infinite variety of Victorian houses were a few basic structural forms, repeated millions of times over by builders following well established principles.
