    THEATRICAL CONSCIOUSNESS

    The newly opened Mondavi Center, for music, dance, and theater, is part of a master plan for the University of California at Davis aimed at creating a new image for the campus. Overcoming the special challenges of designing "green" in a performing arts center, BOORA Architects and Arup engineers have made the building a model of sustainability. — Published 2002.1106

    BASICS - CLAY TILE ROOFING

    Tile roofing accommodates various building traditions and climatic conditions, and it now accounts for over eight percent of the residential steep-slope roofing market in the United States for new construction and about three percent for reroofing. And in much of the world, earthy, fire-safe, long-lasting tile is the dominant roofing material. — Published 2002.1030

    APARTMENTS OUTSIDE THE BOX

    There has been a recent growth spurt of highrise apartment development along Manhattan's avenues. Although these buildings strengthen street-level pedestrian activity, replacing congested parking lots with shops and restaurants, their predictable appearance means that the population of New York is being denied high-quality design. — Published 2002.1016

    MUSEUM OF GLASS BY ARTHUR ERICKSON

    Amid a scruffy sprawl of warehouses and marinas, on a former brownfield site in Tacoma, Washington, sits the sparkling new Museum of Glass. Subtitled the International Center for Contemporary Art, this is the most recent hope for reviving Tacoma's lackluster downtown core.

    The 75,000-square-foot (7000-square-meter), $63 million project was designed by the preeminent Canadian architect Arthur Erickson in collaboration with Nick Milkovich Architects Inc., of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Thomas Cook Reed Reinvald, of Tacoma. — Published 2002.1009

    LA EXPANSIVE

    The view from the 23rd-floor lobby of the White, O'Connor, Curry & Avanzado law office is as good as it gets in Los Angeles. Nearly floor-to-ceiling glass curtain walls reveal an awe-inspiring backdrop of the city, mountains, and Southern California's endlessly blue sky. Located in a corporate high rise in the prime business district of Century City, the new headquarters of one of LA's leading litigation law firms is a workspace to be envied. — Published 2002.0925

    REVOLUTIONARY DOMES

    A dome-shaped house that can rotate 300 degrees? It may sound quirky, but this is the product of Canadian company Sunspace Rotating Homes. They design and build these structures, mainly on small hillside and infill sites, in Canada and the United States. — Published 2002.0918

    WIMBLEDON PARK SLIM

    A house with the unassuming name "84 Arthur Road" has introduced an element of drama to an otherwise sleepy suburb of southwest London. At first glance, the new house seems to contrast sharply with its 1900s-vintage suburban neighbors. — Published 2002.0918

    PIANO'S HERMÈS TOKYO

    There is a new landmark in Ginza, one of the leading shopping and business districts of Tokyo. Designed by the Italian architecture firm, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, the building is the corporate headquarters and store of Hermès Japan, a company famous for its handmade leather bags and apparel. — Published 2002.0911

    ZAMBIAN VERNACULAR

    Zambia gained independence from Britain in 1964, the country has experienced a continuing shift toward urbanization that is reflected in its architecture. As in other parts of Africa, Zambia's rich architectural legacy is gradually giving way to Western-style constructions.

    Zambian vernacular architecture is organic, beautiful, and most importantly, comfortably integrated with the local climate, culture, and harvest cycles. Yet this building culture is not being passed on to younger generations. — Published 2002.0807

    SOLUTIA GLASS AWARDS

    The trend toward greater transparency in modern architecture is due in large part to recent developments in glazing technologies. Laminated safety glass frees architects from strict reliance on opaque structural materials. One of the manufacturers developing such applications is Solutia, which has announced the winners of its 2002 design awards program. The cited projects, from all over the world, are diverse demonstrations of the structural and esthetic benefits of these architectural glazings. — Published 2002.0731
