    WIMBLEDON PARK SLIM

    A house with the unassuming name "84 Arthur Road" has introduced an element of drama to an otherwise sleepy suburb of southwest London. At first glance, the new house seems to contrast sharply with its 1900s-vintage suburban neighbors. — Published 2002.0918

    MOSHE SAFDIE IN ISRAEL

    Israeli-born architect Moshe Safdie is well known for structures on the American continent, including his pioneering Habitat '67 in Montreal. This residential complex with distinctive stacking blocks has widely influenced thinking about urbanism and building systems.

    Safdie has also continued to work in his native country. He spends one week a month at his practice in Jerusalem, where he has designed numerous public and private buildings of note. — Published 2002.0904

    BOSTON AIR RIGHTS

    Creating urban land where none existed before seems to be a Boston tradition. Dredging of the Charles River and leveling of hills in the 1800s transformed a shallow backwater into the stylish Back Bay neighborhood. Now developable "plots" are being created by leasing of "air rights" over the portion of the Massachusetts Turnpike that traverses downtown. — Published 2002.0904

    IMPROVING URBAN SHANTYTOWNS

    Over one fourth of the urban population of India today lives in slums, under inhumane conditions. These shantytowns, common to many cities of the developing world, are characterized by low-quality housing and lack of physical infrastructure. With little access to clean drinking water and sanitation, the inhabitants face a constant threat of disease. — Published 2002.0821

    SUBURBAN RENEWAL

    Two years ago I moved into a modest, 1950s-era, one-story house. From the beginning, my intention has been to make better use of on-site resources such as sun, rain, and soil while using the existing house and property as points of departure for my own local suburban renewal project. A primary strategy of "permaculture" central to this work is to develop what I call "chains of benefits," when single actions produce multiple positive outcomes. — Published 2002.0814

    ZAMBIAN VERNACULAR

    Zambia gained independence from Britain in 1964, the country has experienced a continuing shift toward urbanization that is reflected in its architecture. As in other parts of Africa, Zambia's rich architectural legacy is gradually giving way to Western-style constructions.

    Zambian vernacular architecture is organic, beautiful, and most importantly, comfortably integrated with the local climate, culture, and harvest cycles. Yet this building culture is not being passed on to younger generations. — Published 2002.0807

    FRESH LOOK IN BUDAPEST

    When I sat down to write about the architectural characteristics of the new Lehel Tér market, I was convinced of only two things. On one hand, I was delighted to finally see a kind of architecture that offers a comprehensive intellectual adventure on this otherwise increasingly boring Budapest street. — Published 2002.0731
