ART PAPERS 27.02 - Mar/Apr 2003
In this issue William McDonough tackles the question of what designers are doing about endangered ecosystems and what responsibilities designers must assume if they wish to have these rights in the article Sustainable Design. Leslie Bellavance researches the 'new' museum and asks herself: what can expensive additions by internationally renowned architects accomplish for cities not used to being cultureal destinations? How do the museums maintain the level of excitement after the dedication ceremony?
