    POSTCARD FROM PORTLAND

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    If you visited Portland, Oregon's Saturday Market prior to 2009, then you might remember a collection of vendor stalls arranged under the concrete approach ramp of the Burnside Bridge, spilling out to the south, wrapping around a ponderous and slightly run-down brick building, and continuing toward the historic Skidmore Fountain. And if you visit that site today, you'll notice things have changed. — Published 2009.1216

    MAYA LIN - UNCHOP A TREE

    As we wait and listen around the world to hear what new increment of our collective fate will emerge from the final days of the Copenhagen climate conference, this new video piece by Maya Lin, itself an increment of her "What is Missing?" environmental memorial project, speaks deeply on the disaster of ongoing deforestation.

    CHRISTMAN BUILDING

    For the new Christman Company headquarters in downtown Lansing, Michigan, SmithGroup set out to design modern, high-end offices within a historic building. What resulted, somewhat surprisingly, was a sustainable exemplar.

    Christman, a Lansing-based construction company, had purchased a 1928 building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and set a modest goal for sustainable renovation: basic certification under LEED for Core & Shell. — Published 2009.1216

    CAMBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY

    A stunning new addition has opened at the Cambridge Public Library in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

    GREENBUILD REPORT 2009

    "Almost 40 percent of the global warming pollution in our country comes from old, inefficient, leaky buildings that don't have to be that way."

    So said former Vice President Al Gore as he opened Greenbuild 2009. — Published 2009.1209

    PUGH + SCARPA STEP UP

    Walking or driving past the new Step Up on Fifth project in downtown Santa Monica, California, one could mistake the colorful building — with its front facade of yellow, white, and purple metal panels — for a contemporary art center or a fashionable condominium. The mixed-use residential building in the heart of this affluent, picturesque city was actually built to serve people suffering from mental illness and homelessness. — Published 2009.1202

    NEW ENGLAND AIA AWARDS

    The rectangular volume of Kroon Hall by Michael Hopkins wears one great roof, pitched up to a broadly curving ridgeline. This new home for Yale University's School of Forestry & Environmental Studies in New Haven, Connecticut, achieves both a welcoming form and a high level of sustainable design.

    Designed by Hopkins Architects of London, with Centerbrook Architects and Planners as executive architect, Kroon Hall is expected to earn a Platinum LEED certification. — Published 2009.1104

    In mid-October 2009, twenty teams of engineering and architecture students erected houses on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., for the biennial Solar Decathlon green building contest. After spending two years designing and building cutting-edge solar houses, the teams — mostly from North America — sought the designation of "most attractive, effective, and energy-efficient" for their structures. — Published 2009.1028
