    INSIDE THE TEEPEE WITH ROLAND REED

    By the dawn of the twentieth century, the era of the American West as a frontier had all but ended. At the same time, the life and existence of its original inhabitants, the American Indian, had reached a point of change where it would never again be as it was. — Published 2012.1114

    LONDON OLYMPICS ARCHITECTURE GUIDE

    Olympic Stadium

    "The innovative flexible design of the Olympic Stadium means its 80,000 capacity can be reduced after the Games. It has a permanent lower tier with a capacity of 25,000, and a temporary steel and concrete upper tier, which holds a further 55,000 spectators, that can be dismantled after the Games. — Published 2012.0725

    GREEN TOP TEN - BUILDINGS FOR EDUCATION

    In Newberg, Oregon, southwest of Portland, the first building has been built on a new 15-acre (6-hectare) campus for Portland Community College (PCC). The structure's distinctive forms provide a visual clue about the strategies — including passive cooling and extensive daylighting — that were used to achieve its goal of zero net energy use. — Published 2012.0516

    AIA NATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS

    Viewed at a distance from the southwest, 8 House looks almost like a strange landform: two vegetated roofs form a massive green "V" reaching from the ground-floor roof all the way to the top of the building, nine stories above.

    The logic of this mixed-use building is better understood from a bird's-eye view. In concept, the plan is a 230-meter- (750-foot-) long loop that has been twisted to form a giant, angular figure eight. — Published 2012.0215

    CREATING THE KENNEDY CENTER

    The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts was problematic for the office of architect Edward Durell Stone. At the project's inception as the National Cultural Center, Washington, D.C., had lacked a venue for performing arts commensurate with the city's role in the life of the nation and the world. — Published 2012.0208

    THE STORY OF SAARINEN'S JOHN DEERE HEADQUARTERS

    Carefully tucking away "the car's fat shine" was integral to the definitive Deere & Company Administrative Center in Moline, Illinois, later renamed Deere & Company World Headquarters.

    The exemplar for all subsequent corporate estates, it brought together landscape, site plan, and architecture into an elegant and commanding solution. Deere definitively proved the corporate value of the high-image, high-style suburban headquarters. — Published 2011.1207

    MOSHE SAFDIE BUILDS FOR PEACE

    From the intersection of 23rd Street and Constitution Avenue in Washington, D.C., at a corner of the U.S. National Mall near the Potomac River, the grandeur of the Lincoln Memorial is due south, and war-related memorials to Vietnam veterans, World War II, and George Washington, among others, unfold to the left, southeastward. — Published 2011.1109
