    THE STORY OF WEMBLEY STADIUM

    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

    BASICS - STAIRS, RAMPS, AND SLOPES

    Stairs, ramps, and slopes are specific types of flooring assemblies that join two or more different levels.

    Their design is guided, in part, by larger design intentions that involve human movement through space, along with scale, location, orientation, wayfinding strategies, and their contextual fit within the immediate and surrounding environment. — Published 2012.0418

    BEST OF BUILD BOSTON

    Build Boston, the largest regional conference and trade show for the design and construction industry in the United States, recently demonstrated again why it has earned such preeminence.

    More than 14,000 architects, designers, construction and facility managers, and owners attended the 27th Build Boston conference, hosted by the Boston Society of Architects in November 2011. The trade show floor boasted some 300 vendors — up 6% over last year — who plied their products with the usual vigor. — Published 2012.0111

    ANATOMY OF METABOLISM

    The exhibit "Metabolism, the City of the Future" at the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo is a major retrospective looking at Japan's most widely known and perhaps least understood modern architecture movement.

    Subtitled "Dreams and Visions of Reconstruction in Postwar and Present-Day Japan," the exhibit throws up images depicting a sci-fi world of floating cities, metropolises in the sky, and soaring geometric shapes and patterns repeated over and over with little apparent correspondence to the psychological needs of humans. — Published 2011.1214

    LEED-EB O&M AT THE ROSE GARDEN ARENA

    In the last few years, fans of the Portland Trail Blazers may have noticed some changes to the Rose Garden arena, the basketball team's home court in Portland, Oregon. The white roof may look a bit brighter, after cleaning to improve solar reflectivity.

    Inside, conventional trash cans have been replaced by 300 receptacles for enhanced recycling and compost disposal. Outside, bicycle racks have proliferated, now accommodating 100 additional bikes. — Published 2011.1026

    ENDANGERED AMERICAN PLACES

    The Chicago building that formerly housed Prentice Women's Hospital is proudly unorthodox. Above a steel-and-glass base, in a sea of more-conventional rectilinear neighbors, the building's quatrefoil concrete tower rises banded with oval-shaped windows. — Published 2011.0720

    POMPIDOU-METZ BY SHIGERU BAN

    Shigeru Ban has recently been spending almost three-quarters of his time outside Japan, and one main reason for this pattern is the fact that he was building the Centre Pompidou-Metz, an ambitious extension that the Parisian institution has undertaken in the eastern French city of Metz. — Published 2011.0622

    TOYO ITO IN JAPAN

    C.B. Liddell for ArchitectureWeek: A very simple question to start with. Maybe the answer will be complicated. How do you feel about being awarded the 2010 Praemium Imperiale? — Published 2011.0302

    EERO'S RINK REBORN, OR... ADDING TO THE YALE WHALE

    It's not often that an architect gets to add to a building that he or she worked on years before, especially after a span of 50 years. But that's the case for the new expansion of Yale's David S. Ingalls Rink, originally designed by Eero Saarinen in the early 1950s. — Published 2010.0825
