    INNOVATION AT IRVINE

    For residents of Los Angeles, California, the county line to the south is often referred to as "the orange curtain." Stereotypes of Orange County depict a different world politically and architecturally: "red" versus "blue," suburban versus urban, predictable versus vivacious. The orange groves after which the county is named have all but disappeared, replaced by office parks and subdivisions of million-dollar houses. — Published 2005.0518

    SWISS RE TOWER BY FOSTER AND PARTNERS

    During construction, London's newest highrise conjured up many emotions from visitors and locals alike: here was a building that would bring a major change to the skyline. It became affectionately known as the "Gherkin," but was it worth it? Was it a white elephant? — Published 2005.0504

    PARIS AIR TERMINAL COLLAPSE REPORT

    On May 23, 2004, a portion of roof at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris collapsed, killing four travelers and injuring three more. Ten months later, an investigation of the innovative vault construction has resulted in a report citing probable causes. — Published 2005.0427

    SEATTLE PUBLIC LIBRARY

    Were the architects inspired by sculpture when they designed the idiosyncratic form of the Seattle Public Library? Were they perhaps influenced by the angularity of the nearby street sculpture, Vertebrae, by Henry Moore? — Published 2005.0420

    DOUBLY TRANSPARENT

    Growing concern for occupant comfort and lower energy costs has led to a recent revolution in curtain wall design, primarily in Europe. Dynamic, double-skin walls that induce air movement between the layers of glass are replacing the static, sealed envelopes that have until recently characterized modern curtain walls.

    The new generation of glass wall is an active component of the heating, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) system, bringing air tempering installations from the hidden central core to the building perimeter. — Published 2005.0316

    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

    FIRE STATION LIVING DE PARIS

    There's a newcomer to an otherwise typical Parisian suburban landscape of highways, railway lines, factories, and housing. In the fast-growing town of Nanterre, a fire station has become a new landmark, with a copper-colored facade that changes with the daylight.

    Designed by the French architects Jean-Marc Ibos and Myrto Vitart, the fire station is also a redefinition of the building type, mixing conventional fire-fighting program elements with multifamily housing. — Published 2005.0216

    NEIGHBORLY MOD

    The Ebeling House in Dortmund, Germany makes a direct challenge to conventional expectations and local taste, and it is equally bold in its reference to modernist minimalism. Is this boldness hostile, or friendly? Does it reward analysis? Does it make a humane place for living? — Published 2005.0202

    SCHOOLS OUR KIDS WOULD BUILD

    In 1967, and again in 2001, British schoolchildren were invited to submit their ideas to a competition "The School I'd Like." In their drawings and poems, they expressed the desire for schools that are attractive, safe, flexible, relevant, and respectful. This review of the archived results suggests that architects could benefit from understanding these children's visions. Editor — Published 2004.1117

    ON NOT COOKING CLIENTS

    On a recent trip to Havana, Cuba, I observed colonial architecture with characteristic thick adobe walls and naturally ventilated courtyards that were cool and comfortable, in marked contrast to the hot and humid conditions outside the building. — Published 2004.0825
