    POSTCARD FROM LONDON

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    In July 2003, the Hungerford footbridges, which have brought about a major improvement to the London pedestrian's journey across the River Thames, were renamed the Golden Jubilee Bridges to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth's coronation. — Published 2003.0806

    BLUFF HOUSE

    Since the mid-1960s, the firm Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects has created a series of houses across the country for art collectors, exploring the connection between art and craft. One such house perches on a Seattle-area hillside, deferring to nature. Architecture critic Paul Goldberger says of the firm's work: "this is an experiential architecture, not a theoretical one...marked by a self-assured and sensual presence, shaped by light, texture, materiality, and scale."

    STEEL DESIGN AWARDS 2003

    Once a year, the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) takes a break from its serious work of providing technical assistance to architects, engineers, and builders. Through its Innovative Design and Excellence in Architecture with Steel (I.D.E.A.S.) awards, the institute honors a few projects that use steel and display an exemplary merging of architectural expression and structural form. — Published 2003.0716

    A TENT ON THE BEACH

    Residential architect and teacher Marcel Sedletzky was born in Russia but lived most of his professional life in Monterey, California. His style was a blend of high modernism, like that of Marcel Breuer, with the organic fusion of form and site of Frank Lloyd Wright. Sedletzky's houses embody his passion for drama, and his collaborations with his clients were often dramatic as well. Editor — Published 2003.0709

    ART UNDER GLASS, UNDERGROUND

    In the middle of a lush, mountainside forest in Japan is a five-story structure with only a half story above ground. Yet the Pola Museum of Art in Kanagawa prefecture treats visitors to the lower floors with abundant daylight. This is because much of the building, even part of its structure, is made of glass. Designed by Koichi Yasuda, Ken Kannari, and Masao Nishioka of the Tokyo firm Nikken Sekkei Ltd., the building has won the 2003 DuPont Benedictus Award for its innovative application of laminated glass. — Published 2003.0709

    BUILDING TALL

    Since the 1980s, architects of tall buildings have sought variety in geometric massing and silhouette, coupled sometimes with a striving for height for its own sake and not just as a way of increasing floor area on a restricted site. Economy in the costs of construction seems sometimes to have been considered less important than before. — Published 2003.0618

    SOLUTIA GLASS AWARDS 2003

    In Nagoya, Japan, concertgoers visiting the new Oasis 21 will be treated to a unique outdoor ceiling. Not only is the roof above them made of glass, it is also filled with water, further refracting the light received in the public spaces below. This civic structure by architect Hideki Casai of the Obayashi Corporation is one of several recent winners of the 2003 Solutia Design Awards. — Published 2003.0611

    HADID'S BERGISEL SKI JUMP

    Cobra, high-heeled shoe, golf club... Quite a few nicknames have emerged for the new Bergisel Ski Jump since its opening in September 2002. Time will tell if one of these nicknames will stick, but already the ski jump by the London firm Zaha Hadid Architects has become an important point of reference for the surrounding mountain landscape. — Published 2003.0528

    POSTCARD FROM RONCHAMP

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    The architectural highlight of our bicycle ride across France was visiting the Notre Dame du Haut chapel, a steep climb from the town of Ronchamp. Designed by Le Corbusier and built in 1955, this expressionist chapel is one of the icons of 20th century European architecture. — Published 2003.0521
