    QUARRY TO KITCHEN

    For thousands of years, people have used granite and marble to protect their places of power and wealth. Communities have built palaces, libraries, temples, and banks from stone, but most individuals have found it too expensive to install in their homes or workplaces. Recently, a group of companies from southern Brazil have joined forces to provide affordable finished products made from these luxurious materials. — Published 2005.1109

    ETHICS OF ADAPTIVE REUSE

    Today's renewed interest in "green" architecture should heighten attention to the ethic of preservation, as a cornerstone of sustainability. Now that the idea of recycling waste has permeated our culture, I believe we should adopt the slogan, "recycle wasted architecture." — Published 2005.0518

    SIOUX CITY ORPHEUM RESTORATION

    The Orpheum Theatre in Sioux City, Iowa was once a grand vaudeville and movie palace. Designed by the famous Chicago architects Rapp and Rapp, it opened in 1927 and boasted spectacular chandeliers, a gold leaf covered dome, and the grandest of lobbies.

    Over the decades, the theater suffered numerous insensitive remodels but has recently returned spectacularly to life thanks to a dedicated team of restoration expert and craftspeople. — Published 2003.1203

    JUVARRA IN TURIN

    The Duke of Savoy was in search of an architect to help him transform the city of Turin in the Italian Piedmont. The duke wanted his capital to be a modern, successful city of his Late Baroque period, that would show that the powerful House of Savoy stood at the forefront of world architecture. — Published 2003.1029

    HISTORIC FRENCH STYLE

    The 18th century is thought by some to be the most elegant era in European history, with French furniture from this period singled out for praise. Oblivious to the political and social turmoil that once surrounded it, French furniture radiates luxury and commands a loyal following among antique dealers, decorators, and collectors who appreciate fine craftsmanship and have the means to buy it. — Published 2002.0522

    HISTORIC HOTELS OF EGYPT

    One of the fascinating achievements of British influence in many former colonies of the British Empire is that the past has almost been frozen in time. While the British themselves were quick to shed the garments of the Victorian tradition and embrace the modern age, the former colonies, because of either financial difficulties or a sort of nostalgia, have preserved the era. — Published 2001.0905

    KILLER MONUMENTS OF VALPARAISO

    Halfway down its long, jagged Pacific coast, Chile's second city has seen better days. A century ago, Valparaiso was the country's main port, but it has since been abandoned by the wealthy classes and the industrialists and is rough, rusty, and grimy.

    The city's hodgepodge of Victorian follies, French neoclassical palaces, and modest wooden chalets clinging precariously to the hillsides is literally falling apart. — Published 2001.0516

    POSTCARD FROM VALENCIA

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Imagine my surprise one evening when, riding along the Pasada de Alameda in Spain, I saw in the distance several buildings that seemed to be almost floating in the dusk. They had to have been designed by Santiago Calatrava! Our guide confirmed this, and the next morning before dawn I hopped into a taxi and headed back to photograph them. — Published 2001.0110
