    AMERICAN LANDSCAPE AWARDS

    When it originally opened in 1978, the Portland Transit Mall created a transit-focused corridor in downtown Portland, Oregon. For a distance of 11 blocks through the commercial core, a pair of one-way streets combined dedicated bus lanes and limited car traffic with wide brick sidewalks and an abundance of trees, benches, and shelters. But despite being an icon for progressive urban planning, the mall suffered deferred maintenance and deterioration over time. — Published 2011.1102

    HOW TO WRITE A HISTORIC STRUCTURE REPORT

    One could say — at least in a generic sense — that any report written about a historic structure could be considered a historic structure report. The term, however, has evolved over time, taking on a very specific and far more limited meaning. Here we take the reader through the typical structure and content of a Historic Structure Report (HSR) and, in doing so, demonstrate what makes the HSR distinct from other documents and important in its own right. — Published 2011.0518

    DEMOLITION THREAT AT CONEY ISLAND

    Coney Island, New York, an area once known for its vibrant and exciting rides, restaurants, and games, is today marred by blocks of blighted buildings. Although some important revitalization has created the new Luna Park and the Brooklyn Cyclones MCU Park and saved landmarks such as the Parachute Jump and Child's Restaurant on the boardwalk, the landscape is still dotted with fast food joints and convenience stores that are a far cry from what Coney Island once was. — Published 2010.0915

    POSTCARD FROM TRENTON

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    It was a hot day and a long bus ride from Midtown Manhattan to Ewing Township, New Jersey, to get a sneak peek of the restoration in progress of Louis Kahn's Bath House, forever geographically misplaced near Trenton. Two dozen or so intrepid architecture and design journalists, including yours truly, munched on box lunches and watched My Architect on the bus's overhead TV monitors as we rumbled down the Jersey Turnpike toward one of Kahn's pivotal projects from the early 1950s. — Published 2010.0811

    U.S. HISTORIC SITES IN PERIL

    An art deco highrise in eastern Mississippi continues to deteriorate, as does one of the last remaining Negro League baseball stadiums, in New Jersey. A 1,300-year-old cultural site in Guam is threatened by U.S. Navy construction plans, and the character of Connecticut's scenic Merritt Parkway is at risk. — Published 2010.0623

    NEW SAN FRANCISCO ARCHITECTURE

    SFMOMA commissioned a new sculpture garden for the top of its parking structure, with provisions to connect to the main San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building — a late-20th-century classic that prefigured the wave of museums constructed following the Guggenheim Bilbao in 1997. Jensen & Macy Architects conceived of the garden, which was completed by successor firm Jensen Architects, as a gallery without a ceiling. — Published 2010.0609

    GREAT NEW LANDSCAPES

    Visitors to the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China, are experiencing a former industrial site reclaimed as a riverside oasis: Houtan Park. Running through this strip of green space, interlaced with walkways, a constructed wetland treats polluted river water for use at the Expo. — Published 2010.0526

    CAMBRIDGE PUBLIC LIBRARY

    A stunning new addition has opened at the Cambridge Public Library in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Using ideas of transparency, inclusiveness, and efficiency as starting points, William Rawn Associates designed the glass-and-steel addition as a modernist foil to the original 1888 library by Van Brunt & Howe. — Published 2009.1209

    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
