    FALSE BAY WRITER'S CABIN

    The False Bay Writer's Cabin serves as a private writer's retreat and guest cottage on San Juan Island, Washington. The owners asked for a space that felt connected to its island setting — the mild climate, scenic views, and proximity to wildlife. At the same time, they needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use. — Published 2012.0104

    ANATOMY OF METABOLISM

    The exhibit "Metabolism, the City of the Future" at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo is a major retrospective looking at Japan's most widely known and perhaps least understood modern architecture movement.

    Subtitled "Dreams and Visions of Reconstruction in Postwar and Present-Day Japan," the exhibit throws up images depicting a sci-fi world of floating cities, metropolises in the sky, and soaring geometric shapes and patterns repeated over and over with little apparent correspondence to the psychological needs of humans. — Published 2011.1214

    AUTODESK UNIVERSITY 2011 - "SOFTWARE EVERYWHERE"

    On a chilly November morning in Las Vegas, Nevada, Carl Bass, president and CEO of Autodesk, stepped up to the stage at the Autodesk University (AU) 2011 conference to hail the emergence of a new approach in data management, powered by cloud computing. — Published 2011.1214

    THE STORY OF SAARINEN'S JOHN DEERE HEADQUARTERS

    Carefully tucking away "the car's fat shine" was integral to the definitive Deere & Company Administrative Center in Moline, Illinois, later renamed Deere & Company World Headquarters.

    The exemplar for all subsequent corporate estates, it brought together landscape, site plan, and architecture into an elegant and commanding solution. Deere definitively proved the corporate value of the high-image, high-style suburban headquarters. — Published 2011.1207

    AIA'S BEST NEW BUILDINGS FROM CHICAGO

    A glass dome rises from a lawn on the University of Chicago campus. The ellipsoidal structure by Murphy/Jahn — a counterpoint in form and materials to the eclectic buildings around it — is a refined tip of the iceberg for the Joe and Rika Mansueto Library. — Published 2011.1207

    WILLIAM WURSTER - HOUSES

    Thinking back, an image that most endures in my mind is the white tower and compound of William Wurster's Gregory House (1929) in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

    The Gregory Farmhouse, as it's usually referenced, is a misnomer: it is a country retreat designed and built between 1927 and 1929, a place of the soul, no doubt, for a very sophisticated San Francisco family. — Published 2011.1130

    SHUBIN + DONALDSON - FROM FUEL TO BISCUIT

    The apparent placelessness of Los Angeles, where one community bleeds into another with little visible distinction, can partially be attributed to its major industries — advertising, television, movies, the web — because these businesses live placelessly, mostly in periodicals, or on screens in the theater, in the family room, and at the desk. — Published 2011.1130

    INNER LIGHT OF THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL

    With nave and aisles bearing vast arrays of vivid, intricate stained glass, sunshine naturally washes warm, beautiful color across the stone arches and columns of the National Cathedral, atop Mount St. Alban in Washington, D.C.

    Since the Gothic masonry structure was shaken by the magnitude 5.8 Virginia earthquake on August 23, 2011, this inner light has taken on another dimension. — Published 2012.0704

    AIA EDUCATION DESIGN AWARDS

    When Canada's Royal Conservatory of Music set about expanding its midtown Toronto campus, a careful balancing act was required. The project combined construction of the new Telus Centre for Performance and Learning with the progressive restoration of historic McMaster Hall. The conservatory also sought to energize a new cultural district for the city in conjunction with major cultural facilities nearby, such as the Royal Ontario Museum and Gardiner Museum. — Published 2011.1116
