    2010 BREEAM AWARDS

    When leaders in Milton Keynes, England, sought a new recreation center in the Central Bletchley district, they had many goals: an iconic presence on the outside, countless fitness and sports facilities on the inside, and a building that could catalyze an overall regeneration of the town. But the overriding goal — one that tied together all these disparate parts — was to make the new Bletchley Leisure Center a state-of-the-art sustainable building. — Published 2010.0414

    WHO IS PETER ZUMTHOR?

    In April, about two weeks before his 66th birthday, Swiss architect Peter Zumthor was named the 2009 laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize. Zumthor is not a household name, as many other Pritzker winners have been — architects such as Gehry, Meier, and Pei. Even many architects haven't heard of him. — Published 2009.0826

    SOLID GREEN PRACTICE

    Given the urgency of our response to climate change and other environmental needs, is it really okay to keep building new non-green buildings?

    REAL LIFE REGREENING

    What of the middle scale — the ten- to 40-acre (four- to 16-hectare) shopping centers with two or more anchors? What kind of impacts and communities can retrofits build at this scale? — Published 2009.0304

    KOLUMBA ART MUSEUM

    In Cologne, Germany, a city ravaged by World War II, the Kolumba Art Museum embraces and preserves centuries of culture and pays poetic tribute to the layers of civilization unearthed on its site.

    NEW URBANISM IN CHARLOTTE

    When New Urbanism was starting to develop in the 1980's, much of the Charlotte, North Carolina, area was not yet conceived; uptown was dying, and building mixed-use areas was "illegal." The suburban model of growth reigned supreme. But times change. — Published 2008.0409

    THE SUNDANESE HOUSE

    Three hundred steps lead down to the Sundanese village of Kampung Naga. Here, in this valley of West Java, Indonesia, the people consciously maintain the knowledge of their ancestors and their traditional lifestyles in a close relationship with nature. This philosophy extends to their construction methods using local materials of timber, stone, bamboo, and palm leaves. — Published 2007.0307
