    TACOMA NARROWS NUMBER THREE

    Does your project require special equipment to convey structural steel on site and into position? Maybe big trucks with oversize loads, and special cranes. But have you ever commissioned a flatbed ship for placing steel? — Published 2007.0905

    DOMINUS IN DEPTH

    Almost ten years ago, the Dominus Estate Winery was one of Herzog and de Meuron's first works in the U.S. to catch critical attention. To understand the design approach of this Pritzker and Stirling Prize-winning firm, and more importantly in terms of the architecture itself, it is worth taking a closer look. — Published 2007.0620

    POSTCARD FROM PUCON

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Traveling in southern Chile recently, I was delighted to discover a lovely hotel in Pucon. Situated on a steep wooded hill overlooking Lago Villarica, the Hotel Antumalal is more than a hotel; it is an architectural experience. With a backdrop of snowcapped mountains, the small intimate hotel is surrounded by acres of beautiful gardens. — Published 2007.0523

    HOUSE ON RED HILL

    The abstract expressionist painter Robert Motherwell once said, "Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it." Those words convey the inspiration behind much of the work of Christopher Harty and Chris Botterill. — Published 2007.0411

    CASA MAULEEN

    On a beach near an abandoned mine on Chile's former "coal coast," the Mauleen House merges historical industrial connections with the raw beauty and energy of the location.

    LEAVES OF GLASS

    Glass, as a building material, offers a special interlayer between our outer and inner space and has opened up and contained, as well as sheltered and revealed, the architecture of its time. Architects' pursuit of the minimal environmental envelope has created an evolutionary and reductionist approach, whereby glass has become a predominant and essential cladding material of contemporary architecture. — Published 2007.0228

    BOTTANICAL SPA

    The Tschuggen Bergoase spa, nestled in the mountains near St. Moritz, Switzerland, takes on a cathedral-like quality. It was designed by Swiss architect Mario Botta who is renowned for his museums and sacred spaces. In contrast to the neighboring Tschuggen Hotel, the spa wears a sleek, timeless design that signals a shift into an interior space of natural quiet. — Published 2007.0207
