    AUSTRALIA STYLE

    Australians enjoy an enviable lifestyle, with indulgent habits of entertaining, aided by an incomparable cuisine, easy access to beach and bush retreats, and frequent travel overseas.

    Though this picture of a privileged society may be easily discarded as idealized and unrealistic, there is some truth in the claim that a greater proportion of the nation's population has access to a wide range of leisure and cultural activities than ever before. — Published 2002.0306

    POWER TOOLS THE ROUTER

    The router is an undisputed king of power-tool versatility. It can shape, joint, plane, trim, carve, drill, and slice wood. It's tops for cutting joinery ranging from simple to fanciful. Want to shape an edge or make a molding? With even a small selection of shapely router bits, you can create nearly an infinite number of variations. — Published 2002.0227

    MIDWEST FARM STYLE

    What better to welcome visitors to a working 1890s farmstead than an exhibit hall suggesting traditional forms. With an economy reminiscent of 19th-century Illinois farm life, the Chicago firm of Teng & Associates, Inc. has designed a barn-like structure for Kline Creek Farm . The new visitors center has an outward appearance appropriate for the historic farm context, but on closer inspection it reveals modern construction techniques and sensibilities. — Published 2002.0227

    SOURCING CUSTOM FURNITURE

    In the world of furniture, sometimes "good" isn't good enough. Whether you're buying for yourself or for a client, sometimes you need something really special, something at the very top of the quality ladder. You can't find that work in a furniture store or a manufacturer's catalog. You have to go to the source, to the men and women whose refined sensibility and meticulous craftsmanship enable them to produce truly distinctive furniture. — Published 2002.0220

    TREE SCULPTURE ENGINEERING

    Contemporary interpretations of themes from Native American culture grace the recently expanded Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. These architectural elements include free-standing sculptural "trees" that spread their branches to create a variety of overhead canopies.

    Although these trees, designed by the interior architecture firm The Rockwell Group, do not support any of the building's structure, their fabrication posed significant challenges to consulting engineers at M.G. McLaren, P.C. — Published 2002.0213

    RESPECT ON CAMPUS

    Honoring your elders is not today's most popular theme in architectural design. But a new classroom building on the Brown University campus, designed by the Providence, Rhode Island firm of William Kite Architects, shows that it is possible to work within the fabric of an old building with originality while paying homage to what has come before. The result is a "new" building striking in its inventiveness. — Published 2002.0130
