    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

    NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM OF ART

    The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, recently underwent a complete overhaul — and the glowing lenses of the new Bloch Building, designed by Steven Holl Architects, are just the tip of the iceberg. — Published 2007.0905

    SANTIAGO SOLITAIRE

    A jewelry shop designed as a jewel box is certainly not a new idea, but the designers of the Joyeria SH2K shop in Santiago, Chile, have taken it to a new level. Architects Paola Kaiser and Cristóbal Gross have created a ribbon of concrete and glass, crystal and chrome, as a cool, elegant setting for the display of jewels. — Published 2007.0822

    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

    THE SUSTAINABILITY OF NINA MARITZ

    Architects practicing in wealthy countries are becoming increasingly aware that our resources are finite and that if climate change goes unchecked, we could face a much warmer, harsher environment. Scientists present us with images of expanding deserts, sinking water tables, and material scarcity.

    For Namibian architect Nina Maritz, the challenges of working in a harsh environment with limited means are already an everyday reality. Her work presents a model for making compelling buildings despite "a poverty of resources." — Published 2007.0613

    POLSHEK'S KAHN YALE GALLERY RESTORATION

    The Yale University Art Gallery, designed by Louis Kahn, reopened a few months ago after a three-year restoration and rejuvenation by Polshek Partnership Architects, working with a team of experts in restoration, exhibit design, and other specialties. The result brings the building back very close to the way Kahn envisioned it when it was completed in 1953. — Published 2007.0613

    SANTIAGO FIRE STATION

    Sometimes designing a firehouse isn't just about fire trucks, bells, and red doors. In designing the 18th Firemen's Brigade in Santiago, Chile, architect Gonzalo Mardones Viviani found that he had to give careful consideration to the firehouse's role in the surrounding neighborhood of Viracura and to its function as a real "house," a home to the fire fighters who live there together with their families. — Published 2007.0606

    HOUSE RECYCLING

    Depending on your generation, you may have been taught: "Waste not, want not." Thrift is certainly one incentive for deconstructing buildings for reuse. In addition, many of us are motivated by a desire to be environmentally sensitive, a fondness for antiques and other items from the past, a yearning to have more control over the quality of materials used in construction, or a recognition that many of the materials available for salvage are of higher quality than those produced today. — Published 2007.0530

    HEARST TOWER

    Pritzker Prize laureate Norman Foster is a master of levitating buildings of dubious design, treatment, or association to the pantheon of architectural icons. The Hearst Tower in Manhattan, which he designed in collaboration with architects Adamson Associates and Gensler, is the most recent example of this resuscitation.

    The 42-story glass- and metal-skinned tower is characterized by a large diagonal grid, emphasized by vertically alternating recessed and projecting multistory corner triangles. — Published 2007.0523
