    MINNESOTA AIA AWARDS

    The house on Bert Hodus and Donna Brogan's farm takes design cues from a farm icon. With its south facade "warped" by design, the couple's new home evokes the graceful sag of many aging 19th- and 20th-century American barns.

    The Blair, Wisconsin, house is wrapped in rainscreen siding of locally harvested, rough-sawn white oak, evocative of the clients' own turn-of-the-20th-century red barn nearby. And the window and door openings are few and large. — Published 2011.0202

    BILLION-SQUARE-FOOT GREENBUILD

    "The USGBC has just reached a historic milestone," announced Rick Fedrizzi, president and CEO of the U.S. Green Building Council. "We have one billion square feet [93 million square meters] of LEED-certified construction."

    Speaking to an audience of thousands at the organization's annual Greenbuild conference and expo, held in Chicago in November 2010, Fedrizzi also cautioned the cheering crowd, "We're still at the beginning of the journey." — Published 2011.0126

    NICE AND NARROW

    The Borneo Sporenburg development lies in one of Amsterdam's former working harbors. The city and West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture planned an urban development with a density of 40 dwellings per acre (100 dwellings per hectare).

    The area was, therefore, subdivided into strips, and the block on which the Stuurmankade 266 to 304 townhouse project by KCAP was constructed is part of several elongated tracts of land. — Published 2011.0126

    DESIGN FOR FLOODING

    Floods are the most frequent natural disaster in the United States. One in three federal disaster declarations is related to flooding, many as a result of hurricanes affecting heavily populated U.S. coastlines.

    Flooding is not new. Some flooding is part of the natural hydrologic cycle and the sustenance it brings to life on Earth. — Published 2011.0119

    POSTCARD FROM BERLIN

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The SOLON factory and headquarters building on the outskirts of Berlin, by local firm Schulte-Frohlinde Architekten, seems to embody a green golden moment for the German startup company specializing in efficient assembly of photovoltaic cells into modular solar panels. — Published 2011.0112

    POSTCARD FROM PASSIVE HOUSE PORTLAND

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    There were 345 attendees (including me) at the North American Passive House Conference in Portland, Oregon, held from November 4 to 7, 2010. Twenty-six sessions focused on all aspects of the Passive House building energy-efficiency certification system, ranging from detailed conceptual overviews led by Passivhaus cofounder Dr. Wolfgang Feist to technical sessions about specific aspects of certification in our region. — Published 2011.0119

    AGA KHAN AWARD FOR ARCHITECTURE

    There's probably more raw creativity, inspiration, and charm in this collection of relatively humble projects than in a typical dozen starchitect masterpieces.

    Near Córdoba, Spain, stand the extensive remains of Madinat al-Zahra, a tenth-century Islamic palace city. — Published 2011.0112

    AUTODESK AIMS FOR THE CLOUD

    You didn't actually have to be at Mandalay Bay, the site of Autodesk University (AU) 2010, to discover Autodesk's big gamble. Away from the Las Vegas strip, away from the casinos and hotels, Autodesk is setting up shop in the cloud.

    Autodesk Labs, a public portal where the company previews many of its R&D initiatives, provides a window into the company's strategy. — Published 2011.0105

    RIPPLE EFFECT

    Your first reaction to seeing Aqua Tower as it commands the Chicago skyline might be, "What happened to that skyscraper?" It looks as if some of its concrete floor fins might have been worn away over years of exposure. Or perhaps some kind of pervasive organism has taken over a sleek glass tower, crawling all over its facade — the Blob meets Howard Roark's Enright Building. — Published 2011.0105
