windows surrounding S.R. Crown Hall. The glass that is
ultimately chosen will be the one that most similar to the
original glass installed in the 1950s. The exterior wall glass
and steel is scheduled for replacement in the summer of
The five candidates were installed last week and will be
judged on appearance, performance (energy and code
compliance), maintainability, availability and cost. The
recommendation panel comprised of faculty, architects and
glass and steel window industry experts, will discuss the
glass options at a June 4, 2004, meeting and offer suggestions
as to which type would be best.
The clear, half-inch, low-iron float glass at the main

last week. The translucent glass will eventually be installed
to replace the larger lower lites at the main level and the
hopper windows at the lower level.
Of the five translucent glass options, four consist of
half-inch-thick assemblies of a variety of glass types,
including low-iron, clear float glass and etched float glass
and coupled with interlayers or films for either color
rendition or energy performance. The fifth option is similar
to the original, quarter-inch-thick, sandblasted glass, but
also contains a sealer.

|Alumnus Leonard Koch Receives International Energy
Russian President Vladimir Putin will
present Leonard Koch, a 1943 graduate of IIT, with a Global Energy
International Prize at a ceremony in St. Petersburg, Russia, on June
20, 2004. Koch will be recognized for his role in the development of
the Experimental Breeder Reactors I and II at Argonne National
Laboratory, where he worked as an engineer from 1948-72.
Koch, who received a bachelor of science in mechanical
engineering at IIT, is an international expert on fast reactor
technology. He pioneered Argonne's efforts to launch the EBR-I,
which was the first rector to generate usable quantities of
electricity from atomic energy; the first to use liquid-metal as a
coolant and the first plutonium-fueled reactor. Its successor, the
EBR-II, demonstrated the feasibility of a closed fuel cycle.
Koch and the two other award recipients – Russian scientists
honored for work in fast reactor technology and thermophysics – were
chosen from a field of 60 nominees. The award honors originality and
significance of achievements to the science and energy world. Nobel
laureate Zhores Alferov established the award in 2002. It is
sponsored by Russian gas, oil and energy companies.

IIT Becomes Part of the Super
Researchers can now tap into I-WIRE
After an unexpected, long delay, IIT is now connected to
Illinois’ I-WIRE, an optical “dark fiber” network linking major
research institutions and universities in Illinois. IIT’s Office of
Technology Services (OTS), led by Chief Technology Officer Ophir
Trigalo, completed the connection to the IBM cluster at the Scalable
Computing Laboratory in the Stuart Building in late April. I-WIRE
links the IBM cluster with high performance computer systems at
Argonne National Laboratory, Northwestern University, University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Illinois at Chicago and
University of Chicago to form the Distributed Optical Testbed (DOT)
computing environment. Using advanced software systems, DOT makes
the high performance computers at the six institutions function as
one super (distributed) computer, which delivers a super computing
and communication power. Computer Science Professor Xian-He Sun is
the primary IIT researcher involved with the DOT project.
This advanced optical network and computing
environment put IIT researchers at the frontline of high performance
computing and will accelerate research in both collaborative and
work environments and help develop new partnerships between
universities like IIT and national laboratories and the
communications industry. The I-WIRE system is part of a nationwide
effort known as the TeraGrid, an ultra fast network linking
supercomputers with vast data repositories, electron microscopes and
other instruments with the capacity to store more than 20 times the
information available in the Library of Congress.
Campus Center Becomes Home to
Colorful miniature model houses and buildings
making up a replica city have descended on The McCormick Tribune
The vibrant buildings are collectively known as FlamesCity, a
project by students of Lycée Français, a French-language school on
Chicago’s North Side. Architecture Assistant Professor Ben
Nicholson’s son attends the school.
Each year the school hosts artists-in-residence to work with its
students on special arts projects. The FlamesCity exhibit was built
in conjunction with Périphériques Architectes, a group of
architecture artists whose work has been included in shows in Japan,
South Korea and France. The houses are on display across from the
bookstore through June 9.
The group was charged with inventing a city that is
well-thought-out, but also innovative. The project incorporated work
from every student in the middle- and junior-high classes and
includes a “confrontation of styles, expressions and techniques,”
according to a statement by David Trottin of Périphériques
Architectes on the Lycée Français Web site, http://www.lyceechicago.org/lycee/web/artists/architects.html.
Exhibits Bring Student Work to Life|
|Seen strange objects
lingering on the grounds outside S.R. Crown Hall? It’s a portion of
the student projects on display through June 15, 2004, inside and
outside the College of Architecture building. The works were on
display for the College’s Open House May 14, in which students were
honored for top work and projects from every level of undergraduate
and graduate work were shown.
The projects are the culmination of semester-long work and are
set up by year. First- and second-year projects test structural
limits of materials and explore volume and shapes, while third- and
fourth-year and graduate projects represent hands-on design
initiatives. Exhibits range from model bridges and buildings to
peaked wooden structures and a load-bearing wall made of Styrofoam
cups. The larger project, such as the Styrofoam cups and mesh ball
made of wood, were team projects describing a method of building
true form while recognizing inherent properties and potentials of
material whether found or manipulated, said Architecture Assistant
Professor Catherine Wetzel.
During the open house, nearly 45 student awards were presented,
including the Alpha Rho Chi Medal to Aaron Adams. The medal is
awarded to a graduating student who has shown leadership and service
and demonstrated the potential for professional merits. Eight
undergraduate students received the $3000 Samuel Horwitz Memorial
Scholarship and graduate student Sara Stevenson was given a special
commendation by the jury for the prestigious Schiff Foundation
