    ULM MÜNSTERPLATZ

    Just over 100 miles (170 kilometers) from Freiburg, Germany, the city of Ulm straddles the banks of the Danube River, and although the two cities' cathedral squares — Münsterplätze — have slightly different birthdates, they are virtual twins. They grew up over the same five-and-a-half centuries, only to be laid low in the same bombing raids of 1944. — Published 2010.0929

    EDUCATIONAL BUILDING

    At two schools in the Pacific Northwest, daylit classrooms stand in small clusters rather than linear arrays along corridors.

    HOUSE AT STONE CREEK CAMP

    The remote Stone Creek Camp compound near Bigfork, Montana, is entered gradually by descending a narrow gravel road through the deep vegetation of a northern primordial forest. About a mile into the pilgrimage, the forest opens to a dramatic expanse of land, sky, and water. Flathead Lake reaches into the distance. — Published 2010.0825

    ON 'TRAVEL AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT'

    News flash: The distance between a residential development location and the metropolitan center is one of the strongest factors influencing how much residents will drive.

    The density of a neighborhood, in and of itself, turns out to be the weakest of the commonly considered "D" variables, key dimensions of the built environment that influence how — and how much — people move around. — Published 2010.0818

    USING BIM FOR SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

    In the process of sustainable design, at one point or another during the design or documentation process, there comes a need to quantify the energy savings, the daylighting, or the recycled content in your building materials. This is done by using other applications to run analysis on the building design and deliver these metrics. — Published 2010.0714

    URBANISMS / TURKEY

    In Akbuk, Turkey, overlooking the Aegean Sea, a new eco-reserve of small town fragments, like islands in a preserved landscape of cultivated natural vegetation, will be characterized by advanced technologies in sustainability, while also anchored in the poetic reverie of this ancient site. The nearby ancient Greek town of Miletus inspires a compact gridded plan. — Published 2010.0714
