Architecture is History - Do you ever look at your house and wonder how it got that way? Chances are, the answer is in the past. Most architecture is derivative, and new designs are often created from old. When Thomas Jefferson built his home at Monticello, he stole ideas from Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio and mixed them with his own inventions. Like Jefferson, we can all draw inspiration and understanding from history. What makes a building Gothic? What's the difference between Renaissance architecture and Baroq...

The Woolworth Building: Gothic, yet Modern - What's so Medieval about Gothic architecture? Nothing, if you're looking at the 1913 Neo-Gothic Woolworth Building in New York City. Ohio-born architect Cass Gilbert spent two years drawing thirty different proposals for Frank W. Woolworth, owner of the dime store chain. On the outside the Woolworth Building had the look of a Gothic cathedral. On the inside, it was a 20th century modern commercial building, with steel framing, elevat...

Swaying with the Golden Gate Bridge - For 25-cents back in 1937, anyone could walk the length of the remarkable Golden Gate Bridge and see firsthand why it's called a suspension bridge. May 27, 1937 was Pedestrian Day when an estimated 15,000 paid to walk the length of the brand new bridge.This 1936 photograph shows the Golden Gate Bridge under construction. The bridge's road deck is being suspended from huge cables attached to the two main cables. The older I get, the more I celebrate the ability to sway. Congratulations, Golden Gate! ...

Lin-chitecture - What's Maya Lin been up to lately? Most recently she's pushing the earth around again, this time in New Zealand at Gibbs Farm, the sculpture collection of entrepreneur Alan Gibbs. Her newest earthen wave installation is called A Fold in the Field. When we think about Lin's career, beginning with her 1981 winning entry for the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC, it becomes clear that she has not strayed far from her ideals and interests. She is committed to the environment, soci...

September 11 Memorial Memories - Can architecture really heal? When I visited Lower Manhattan before the National September 11 Memorial Museum was open, I was struck by the peacefulness of the plaza and Michael Arad's waterfalls. Reflecting Absence seemed both mechanical and elegant, like any good architectural design should be. I peeked through the museum's atrium window and was awed by the sight of the the two steel tridents salvaged from the destroyed Twin Towers. The entryway Pavilion designed by ...

Earth Igloos - How many people live or work in buildings constructed of earth? The folks at eartharchitecture.org estimate that 50% of the world's population spend much of their time in earthen architecture. In a global market economy, it's time that more developed nations take note of this statistic. Traditional adobe homes in the American Southwest have wooden beams and flat roofs, but students at the Adobe Alliance have discovered the African mode of construction, with arches and domes. The result? Beautiful, ultra-strong, and energy-...
