Today’s News - Tuesday, April 2, 2002
This week's newest featured project is in Scotland: architect Mark Walker's own residence. You'd never know it's only an hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh - and 25 minutes from some very fine golf courses. (Click on "Home" above.)
We've also added an "ANN News" column to the home page, so you will have instant access to the most recent news stories posted by ArchNewsNow staff.
Last, but by no means least, we would like to thank Calori & Vanden-Eynden Design Consultants for the dramatic ArchNewsNow logo and evolving Web site design (check out the C&V-E link at the bottom of the home page).
