    AUTODESK UNIVERSITY #16

    In his keynote speech for Autodesk University 2008, Tom Kelley noted that the more time you spend in an industry, the more expertise you develop; but at the same time, you begin to screen out information. He suggested that in these times of economic downturn, companies should take a more anthropological view and look beyond what they already know. Kelley quoted Marcel Proust: "The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands, but in seeing with new eyes." — Published 2009.0121

    GLENN MURCUTT GOLD MEDAL

    In locations from the far reaches of the Northern Territory to suburban New South Wales, Australian architect Glenn Murcutt has created modernist houses remarkable for their supreme sensitivity to climate, surroundings, and environment.

    A true sole practitioner, Murcutt chooses mostly to design single-family dwellings, and only in Australia. The resulting structures attest to the depth of attention he affords each project. — Published 2009.0114

    PREDOCK'S ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL

    In New Mexico, sandstone walls, granite boulders cracked by tree roots, and time-blurred ruins of past civilizations all rise against a cold cobalt sky — variegated results of sun, wind, culture, and geology. Architect Antoine Predock cites such elements of the U.S. Southwest as influences on his design of the University of New Mexico (UNM) School of Architecture and Planning in Albuquerque. — Published 2008.1210

    NEWSEUM BY POLSHEK

    The Newseum building by Polshek Partnership Architects adds vitality and a sense of time and place to Pennsylvania Avenue, a street that, like so many important streets in Washington, D.C., had been devoid of movement and three-dimensionality in massing.

    A museum about news, the aptly named Newseum moved from across the Potomac River, in Arlington, Virginia, where it had outgrown its space. Its parent organization, the Freedom Forum, sought a location more heavily frequented by tourists. — Published 2008.0903

    APPALACHIAN SUNCATCHER

    Nestled into a hillside near Asheville, North Carolina, the Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center is projected to use 75 percent less energy than a comparable conventionally designed facility.

    Trombe walls, a planted roof, bioswales, daylighting, a high-efficiency mechanical energy-recovery system, and other "green" features add up to make this National Park Service facility a contender for LEED Gold certification. — Published 2008.0521

    RENZO PIANO'S NEW YORK TIMES BUILDING

    Ask most architects to name the most elemental ingredients of great architecture, and chances are they will say "space and light."

    But these are not necessarily the first two words that come to mind when thinking about skyscrapers, especially tall buildings in New York City. — Published 2008.0416
