Today's News - June 4, 2002

Today we introduce a 27-unit housing block in Boplatsen, a mixed-use development on a former brownfield in Malmö, Sweden. The project is part of last year's European Housing Exhibition, "Bo01: The City of Tomorrow." Moore Ruble Yudell Architects & Planners and FFNS Arkitekter have combined technology and sustainability to create a most civilized urban dwelling where no two floorplans are alike - no cookie-cutter urban boxes here!

The rest of today's articles are truly international with news, reviews, and a few opinions. Environmental issues are hot (and surprise (!) even the White House admits that it's people causing global warming).
