He comments in Land Matters (February) reveal a narrow view of prayer and an even narrower view of the place of spiritual spaces in our urban environment. To suggest that prayer can only take place alone, in a solitary space, misses the essential message of Christianity, which exhorts lis all to bear witness to the message of the gospels. What better place to bear witness than a busy street in downtown Baltimore, a city whose street corners are sometimes open-air drug markets or refuges for the...

Helping the architectural community build smarter This project was unique because it was an emergency. The university needed dormitories built as soon as possible because of rapidly rising construction costs. Still, one potential problem was the aesthetics of the proposed restoration.

Memories are short where land development is concerned. Upstream, a different kind of land-use lunacy prevailed For the benefit of a dozen farmers on the eastern plains, the Park Service had permitted a poorly built reservoir called Lawn Lake within park boundaries. The collapse of its overfilled and un-derinspected earth dam sent some 36 million cubic feet of water down on Estes Park, carrying boulders the size of houses and mud that buried 177 businesses. It's remarkable that only...

Whether the new administration will dig the idea remains to be seen. Doiron was hoping for action in the first 100 days, timing that makes sense for planting in Washington's relatively mild climate.

These great views of the local landscape inspired the construction of two lookouts that are connected by an orthogonal path marked with logs. The site belongs to a local family who had been involved with the local logging industry for decades and who sought to find a different use for part of their land. Tired of indiscriminate logging practices and facing a devastated area, they were looking for an activity that would attract tourists. They created a place for ziplining in the...
