    SUNSHINE ON CANCER CARE

    Cancer care has come a long way. The disease is no longer a death sentence, and the cure is no longer a journey into an underworld of new technologies tucked into hospital basements, walls doubled up to contain radiation. With its new home designed by NBBJ, the Swedish Cancer Institute in Seattle has taken another step, lifting cancer care into a realm of sensitivity and respect. — Published 2003.0129

    AIR-FORMED CONCRETE DOMES

    Throughout history, structurally efficient domes have been built from masonry, wood, concrete, and even ice. But there's still plenty of room left in dome technology for invention and construction efficiency. New ways to form, reinforce, and insulate "air-formed" concrete domes have been a primary focus of my architectural practice for about 25 years. — Published 2003.0122

    ANDO'S NEW MODERN

    The opening of a new building designed by world-renowned architect Tadao Ando of Osaka, Japan at the end of 2002 marked the 110th anniversary of The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. With 53,000 square feet (4,900 square meters) of gallery space, the new structure for "The Modern," as it is known by locals, is Ando's largest commission in the United States to date. — Published 2003.0115

    POSTCARD FROM TANZANIA

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    While traveling on the Serengeti Plain in Tanzania we visited a Masai village. The village is built in a circle with a large wall around it and several entrances. Every night the Masai bring all their cattle into the center of the village and close up the entrances to protect them from lions and other predators. — Published 2002.1218

    2X4 SPACE SCULPTURE

    In the summer of 2002, the Center on Contemporary Art in Seattle hosted an exhibit called "Blurred," featuring work that blurs the boundaries between art and architecture. As an experiment for the show, designer James Harrison built a room-size structure by stacking short lengths of wood. Every piece was a two-foot long 2x4 (3.8 by 8.9 by 61 centimeters). "The idea," says Harrison, who was trained in both architecture and sculpture, "was to see how much plasticity I could achieve out of a regularly repeated module." It took him two days to cut the blocks and five days to stack them. — Published 2002.1218

    AVAILING FASHION

    Designed by architect Jun Aoki, the new flagship store of the French fashion house Louis Vuitton on Tokyo's Omotesando Boulevard resembles a pile of trunks of different sizes and patterns, honoring Vuitton's origin as a trunk manufacturer. Examine the facade more closely, though, and you'll see an industrial-looking system of wire mesh curtains that create the fashionable effect. — Published 2002.1211

    HOUSING BY HOLL

    A new dormitory at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology seems tailor-made for the school's super-geek culture. The building by Steven Holl has been compared variously to a giant Rubik's Cube and a 1950s computer punch card. — Published 2002.1120

    INSIDE CASA BATLLó

    The interior of Casa Batlló, an art nouveau masterpiece of Spanish architect Antonio Gaudí, has been one of Barcelona's best-kept secrets. This year, to honor the 150th anniversary of Gaudí's birth, the current owners have opened Casa Batlló to public view for the first time since it was completed nearly a century ago. — Published 2002.1113

    PLAYING UPON THE STAGE

    "All the world's a stage," William Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It, but if he were performing in the 21st century, he'd probably take advantage of recent innovations in indoor theater design. In the spirit of the Elizabethan bard, a new building at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland resets the standard for flexibility in repertory theaters. — Published 2002.1113

    IKEA THREATENS BREUER ICON

    On November 7, 2002, the Board of Aldermen of the City of New Haven, Connecticut voted to approve a development proposal from IKEA, an international retailer of designer furnishings. IKEA proposes to build a major new store on an industrial landfill site known as Long Wharf, bringing much-needed jobs and tax revenue to the city. However, unless IKEA changes its current plans, construction of the facility's parking lot will result in the demolition of a substantial part of the Pirelli Building, designed by Marcel Breuer in 1969 for the Armstrong Tire Company. — Published 2002.1113
