    KILLER MONUMENTS OF VALPARAISO

    Halfway down its long, jagged Pacific coast, Chile's second city has seen better days. A century ago, Valparaiso was the country's main port, but it has since been abandoned by the wealthy classes and the industrialists and is rough, rusty, and grimy.

    The city's hodgepodge of Victorian follies, French neoclassical palaces, and modest wooden chalets clinging precariously to the hillsides is literally falling apart. — Published 2001.0516

    NEW CAD ON THE BLOCK

    The Hillier Group, of Princeton, New Jersey, has a long history with computer-aided design. Recently the architecture firm has added to their repertoire a new software product that they believe to be revolutionary in the world of CAD.

    Revit, from Revit Technology Corporation, changes traditional design and project management models for the AEC industry. It offers an integrated, digital model of a building that can be used to maintain and operate that building throughout its lifecycle. — Published 2001.0418

    OWNER-BUILT SUSTAINABLE SHELTER

    Buying a tract house so insensitively placed on the land that extensively remodeled terrain results and using foreign materials that require large amounts of nonsustainable fuels for their manufacture and transport are signs of a people without guiding principles in their relationship to the environment.

    That we have become such people and willingly pay for this disconnected life suggests the depth of our alienation and distance from a secure relationship with sustainability and environmental sensitivity. — Published 2001.0418

    BASKETBALL BUSINESS

    Architect James Carter had the task of recreating the spontaneous atmosphere of a pickup game of basketball. In designing the corporate headquarters for the small but growing sports apparel company, "AND 1," he also had to appeal to unpredictable basketball fanatics. — Published 2001.0404

    NEW CONCEPTS CREATE NIAGARA FALLS HIGH SCHOOL

    Over the Labor Day weekend, a novel educational experiment is being unveiled in Niagara Falls, New York. The community's new high school could well become a trendsetter for public schools in the United States.

    The technology built into the school promises to make it a world-class educational facility. And a unique partnership with The Honeywell Corporation has given the economically challenged city a new school without a tax increase. — Published 2000.0830

    RITZY PRESERVATION SAVES PHILADELPHIA LANDMARK

    About 97 years ago, the Girard Trust Bank commissioned the New York firm of McKim, Mead and White to construct a monumental new facility in Philadelphia near the City Hall. Bank president Effingham Morris wanted to make a dramatic statement forecasting a change in Philadelphia's center of business by having the bank modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. — Published 2000.0628

    The Hillier Group Restores Historic Bank in Philadelphia

    Unveiled next week in Philadelphia will be the newly restored Girard Trust buildings, designed earlier this century by the New York firm of McKim Mead & White. In their newest incarnation, the buildings will become a Ritz-Carlton Hotel. The white Georgia marble of the historic domed structure, modeled after the Pantheon in Rome, has emerged from decades of soot and exhaust to become a signature of the Center City Philadelphia's remarkable downtown renaissance. — Published 2000.0621
