    IN MEMORIAM

    On behalf of everyone at ArchitectureWeek, and the entire extended design and building community, I want to express our deepest sympathies to all the victims of Monday's tragedy in the Blue Ridge Mountains, at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, shattered by the twisted violence of a broken soul: stricken survivors, families, friends, witnesses, associates.

    Saturated, overflowing, or washed distantly with grief, all who know of this tragedy are touched through with its sadness. — Published 2007.0418

    TEACHING CLIMATE

    On February 20, 2007, architects and students worldwide demonstrated en masse that they are ready to go to work to stop global climate change. Their "gathering" was virtual, however, as schools, firms, and individuals from 47 countries tuned in to the 2010 Imperative Teach-In webcast.

    During several hours, a panel of three experts from different disciplines discussed the building sector's impact on global warming. Their presentations are available online. — Published 2007.0314

And yet we have too few U.S. examples to follow when it comes to applying these principles to housing for the poor. — Published 2007.0307
