    STEADMAN ON THE BURJ

    Dear Editor,

    I long for the day when someone says — "Let's have no more wars!! — in Afghanistan or anywhere else!" Instead, let's set about constructing the Mile High Frank Lloyd Wright building somewhere in the centre of the United States — say — DENVER? and call it — "THE PEACE BUILDING"!! — Published 2010.0526

    FOSTER'S NEW OPERA

    The extroverted Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House by Norman Foster has sprung up in Dallas, Texas, across the street from the internally dynamic Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre by REX and OMA. — Published 2010.0526

    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

    WHAT GOES INTO GREEN?

    The American Institute of Architects has announced its top ten green projects for 2010. Sponsored by AIA's Committee on the Environment, and published in ArchitectureWeek No. 472, the award winners are each worthy of citation for excellence in internal design, in most cases reducing their environmental impacts significantly below those of similarly located but conventional buildings while also serving as teaching exemplars. So far, so good. — Published 2010.0512

    AIA HOUSING AWARDS 2010

    The Safari Drive multifamily residential complex in downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, exemplifies a higher-density, pedestrian-scaled alternative to the exploding sprawl of greater Phoenix. Designed by The Miller Hull Partnership, it succeeds as design in the broadest sense: place-making that intertwines architecture, planning, and landscape. — Published 2010.0512

    ENERGY STAR FOR MULTIFAMILY HIGH-RISES

    The EPA's pilot program for the Energy Star for Multifamily High-Rises (MFHR) applies primarily to new construction. It was launched in 2006 with projects in New York and Oregon, and was later expanded to Colorado, Georgia, New Jersey, Texas, and Nevada in order to gather data from different climates. — Published 2010.0505

    POSTCARD FROM FRANKFURT

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The Passivhaus standard for energy efficiency isn't just for houses. This we learned in Germany recently, on a fascinating tour of green building and design there, organized by the Ecologic Institute environmental think tank with funding from the German government. — Published 2010.0428

    BEHNISCH DOUBLE-WALL FACADE

    The twelve-story Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, located at the University of Toronto's St. George campus, is a high-performance building that achieves impressive levels of energy efficiency and — with airy, light-filled spaces throughout — attention to occupant comfort. The building responds intelligently to its climate and orientation with an enclosure system that presents an open face to the campus and adapts to changing environmental conditions. At the same time, it strikes a balance between automated and individually controlled devices. — Published 2010.0505

    AIA TOP GREEN BUILDINGS 2010

    A boxy new house stands on stilts in the Katrina-ravaged Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. Its form may be distinctly contemporary, but the home has ties to its place: filigree railings recall the ornamental ironwork of the French Quarter, and a linear plan evokes some sense of the regional shotgun house vernacular. — Published 2010.0428

    HEADING FOR NET-ZERO

    Some projects come along at pivotal moments. Such was the case for the Rose House in Portland, Oregon, a compact home that served as a laboratory for energy-efficient residential design in 2004, and ended up setting the bar as the first house in the state designed to achieve zero net energy use. — Published 2010.0421
