    LAYERING OLD AND NEW

    A once-abandoned ruin has returned to 21st-century life as a multipurpose event space in a busy entertainment district on the banks of the Bosphorus Strait in Ortakoy, Istanbul. Global Architectural Development (GAD Architecture) has designed a glass and steel box tucked inside the masonry remains. — Published 2004.0428

    POSTCARD FROM EUGENE, OREGON

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The Chapel of Second Chances is an open-air structure intended for second-wedding ceremonies and the renewal of vows. Designed and built by my architecture students at the University of Oregon in Eugene, it illustrates the design potential of reused materials. Besides recycled romance, it will shelter workshops and other educational events. — Published 2004.0421

    HONG KONG'S NEW TALLEST

    The second tower for the International Finance Centre, new headquarters for the Hong Kong Monetary Authority, perches near the narrowest crossing of the beautiful Victoria Harbour and marks a new gateway to the city. The so-called "Two ifc," at Central Waterfront is said to be the world's third-highest building and the safest highrise completed since September 11, 2001. — Published 2004.0421

    LEARNING FROM PIERRE KOENIG

    "It was my notion, when I started, to make anonymous architecture for ordinary people." Pierre Koenig (1925 - 2004)

    Ironically, the beautiful steel houses of Pierre Koenig, with their stunning, frank simplicity, graceful proportions, and sunny, contextually attuned openness, could hardly expect anonymity in an American landscape of neocolonial, neoclassical, and neovernacular norms. — Published 2004.0421

    POSTCARD FROM SAN FRANCISCO

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The exhibition Art Deco 1910-1939 has opened at the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and will be on view until July 4, 2004. Although entire buildings cannot be brought into the museum, the exhibit successfully captures the essence of the deco style through films, drawings, furniture, models, posters, and reconstructed rooms. — Published 2004.0414

    UNDERSTANDING FIGURE IN WOOD

    The term grain is often used erroneously to refer to the distinctive surface appearance of wood, especially that resulting from growth-ring structure. To avoid continued confusion with that already overworked word, we prefer the term figure to refer to distinctive or characteristic markings on longitudinal or side-grain surfaces of wood. — Published 2004.0331

    HOME IN STOCKHOLM

    One hundred new apartments in downtown Stockholm may be a hint that urban living is slowly returning to the city's shopping and business district. The mixed-use redevelopment "Klara Zenit" is a transformation of a gloomy 1971 office monolith into a colorful block of apartments, offices, and shops. — Published 2004.0317

    POSTCARD FROM ROME

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    Rome is an intensively occupied, definitively urban city. After thousands of years of concentrated human development and redevelopment, there is much hardscape, where the stony facade of one building is connected to the brick wall of the next by more stone, in the form of cobbled streets and other pavements. — Published 2004.0303

    DANCES WITH BUILDING

    Three years ago, when a father and his daughter were looking at colleges and evaluating dance programs, they visited the University of Arizona in Tucson. There they discovered one of the country's best dance programs with one of the worst facilities. The man offered to donate funds for a new dance theater if the university and its College of Fine Arts would each match his gift. The result: the new Stevie Eller Dance Theatre. — Published 2004.0204
