    TAIWAN ON TOP

    The official opening of the Taipei 101 Tower in December 2004, makes it for now the world's tallest building. In the 20th century, competition for this title was largely waged in Chicago and New York, but it has recently migrated to Asia. — Published 2005.0302

    BEHNISCH IN BOSTON

    With ever-rising energy prices, commercial tenants in office buildings have begun to consider the increasing cost of heating, cooling, and lighting their spaces as a "second rent." Savvy developers and architects are responding to their concern by making new buildings far more energy efficient than in the recent past. — Published 2005.0209

    TIMELY WATCHWORKS

    If "Swiss clock maker" conjures an image of quaint craftsmanship conducted in gingerbread workshops, think again. The oldest active watch making firm in the world, Vacheron Constantin, recently celebrated the opening of a new headquarters building that looks as sleek and trim as any 21st-century timekeeping technology. — Published 2005.0209

    NEIGHBORLY MOD

    The Ebeling House in Dortmund, Germany makes a direct challenge to conventional expectations and local taste, and it is equally bold in its reference to modernist minimalism. Is this boldness hostile, or friendly? Does it reward analysis? Does it make a humane place for living? — Published 2005.0202

    RESPECTFUL REMODEL

    In an era when the fabric of traditional neighborhoods is being torn so that grotesquely oversized houses can be squeezed into normal-sized lots, at least one firm in Maryland is doing it differently. GTM Architects renovated and expanded the home of firm founder George Myers, and in its detailing showed respect for the century-old neighborhood. — Published 2004.1117

    HOLLYWOOD BOWLING

    The Hollywood Bowl amphitheater became a site for world-class performances over 80 years ago. It was the backdrop for romantic memories and a reflection of the growth of the Los Angeles metropolis. And while the sentimental attachment of Angelinos to this hillside entertainment venue in Bolton Canyon has remained strong, the theater itself has actually changed character many times in the intervening decades. — Published 2004.1020

    CALATRAVA'S CLASSICAL GREEK

    To those who have followed the illustrious career of Spanish-born architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava, it was no surprise that he was the top choice of organizers of the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. In planning and designing the expansion of the historic sports complex, he was given a daunting task: not just to prepare the host city for the athletes and onlookers, but to consider the lasting purpose of the architecture. — Published 2004.1020

    BUILDING HURRICANE SURVIVAL

    It's a hurricane season in the Caribbean region that will go down in the record books as one of the worst ever. And, as of this writing in early October 2004, it's far from over. With another six weeks left in an already devastating season, the design and construction industry is facing a daunting job of rebuilding. — Published 2004.1006

    THE HYPERBOLIC BRICK OF ELADIO DIESTE

    Uruguayan engineer Eladio Dieste would not have realized his brilliant, innovative works had he relied on the conventions of ordinary practice. Instead, he began from first principles. In the hands of this extraordinary engineer, adherence to first principles did not inhibit but rather enhanced the search for sound forms appropriate to the demands put upon them. — Published 2004.0929

    CENTRE NATIONAL DE LA DANSE

    In September 2004, the French Centre National de la Danse (National Dance Center) opened the doors of its "new" headquarters to students, professionals, and the public. Situated in Pantin, a town just northeast of Paris, the rejuvenated 1960s-era building symbolizes a growing cultural interest in the Parisian suburbs. — Published 2004.0922
