    A BLOCK IN TEMPLE BAR

    O'Donnell + Tuomey Architects spent ten years working on one block in Temple Bar, the cultural quarter of Dublin, Ireland.

    We started on conversion of the former Quaker Meeting House into the Irish Film Centre in 1986. Meeting House Square, with the National Photographic Archive and the Gallery of Photography, was opened to the public in 1996. — Published 2008.0130

    RENZO PIANO GOLD MEDAL

    Renzo Piano first captured the attention of the architecture world as co-designer of the Centre Pompidou in Paris with Richard Rogers, an epochal building that dramatically established the still-reigning high-tech modern style of architecture.

    Piano's subsequent projects, including several gorgeous museums and other beautiful buildings around the world, have steadily reinforced his reputation as a profound designer, sensitive practitioner, and master craftsman of building. — Published 2008.0123

    PUBLIC SPACE IN LA?

    Public urban open space. In the course of one L.A. day, those four little words inspired comparisons to a dining room table, descriptions of a "third revolution," arguments for spatial justice, historical tales of the search for an R-1 residential paradise, and an examination of what being "green" means in a desert. — Published 2008.0123

    TALKING WITH TANIGUCHI

    Some Westerners, when faced with Oriental creativity, have a tendency to get a little carried away. Instead of a balanced, rational approach, a tendency emerges to ascribe the aesthetic effect of what they see to some mysterious, spiritual force that is absent from their own culture, whether it be called Zen, Tao, wabi-sabi, or yin and yang. — Published 2008.0116

    LEED GOLD RESURRECTION

    To visit the RiverEast Center in Portland, Oregon, is to stand at a major crossroads. The newly renovated former warehouse building sits along the Willamette River, just across from downtown, at the base of the Hawthorne Bridge. This location affords unobstructed views of boats and cars streaming by in the foreground with the classic downtown Portland skyline behind. The RiverEast Center also sits beside a massive freeway bridge and overpass to the west and a railroad track busy with freight and occasional passenger trains to the east. — Published 2008.0109

    REBUILDING BEAUFORT

    Just north of London, off the M25 highway, a single large wind turbine reaches into the air and turns steadily above the bucolic English countryside. The turbine serves to generate power, and also as an emblem of the headquarters of the wind energy company Renewable Energy Systems (RES), set among the hedge rows and rolling hills of Hertfordshire. — Published 2008.0116

    MILWAUKEE'S URBAN ECOLOGY CENTER

    The Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee simply radiates with a special kind of beauty, from the inside out. It's a charming, efficient, respectful, and delightful structure, and more. It's a community building whose building has helped build a community. — Published 2007.1128

    TACOMA NARROWS NUMBER THREE

    Does your project require special equipment to convey structural steel on site and into position? Maybe big trucks with oversize loads, and special cranes. But have you ever commissioned a flatbed ship for placing steel? — Published 2007.0905

    NELSON-ATKINS MUSEUM OF ART

    The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri, recently underwent a complete overhaul and the glowing lenses of the new Bloch Building, designed by Steven Holl Architects, are just the tip of the iceberg. — Published 2007.0905
