Put your sculpture in an art gallery and how any people see it in a day? Ten? Twenty? Fifty? A hundred? Put your sculpture in a public space and thousands of people walk past it every day. But how many actually see it?That question is occasioned by an exhibit called "Near the Turn of a Century: Regional Rinehart Sculpture," now at the Washington office and retail complex called Washington Square. Located at busy Connecticut Avenue and L Street in Northwest, the building has an atrium on the corner with three floors of shops and eating places, a kind of mini-version of the Gallery at Harborplace.

The lush tropical greenery in the atrium has been replanted. The koi are back in their ponds. And the two glass sections of roof that tower eight stories above it all have been replaced, inspected and certified. Three months after a glass skylight collapsed into the atrium of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley, the hotel has reopened for business. The staffers of the hotel have planned a reopening celebration - scheduled for 5 p.m. today - to thank firefighters, employees and community members who helped out after the glass skylight came crashing down.

Design and installation flaws apparently caused one of two glass roof sections to collapse last month above an eight-story atrium at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley, a company spokeswoman said yesterday. The hotel will remain closed until the other glass roof section is removed and both are replaced, a process that began Monday, said Dawn Ray, a spokeswoman at the hotel chain's Memphis, Tenn., headquarters. Embassy Suites hotels are independently owned and operated, but the company has been encouraging owners of two other locations with similar skylight systems to inspect their properties "as a precautionary measure," said Ray, who would not identify the hotels.

For years, a chief symbol of the University of Maryland Medical Center has been the domed image of Davidge Hall, the anatomical theater where students once gathered in secret to learn about the human body by dissecting cadavers unearthed from nearby graveyards. Now the teaching hospital has a new symbol that features a less clandestine meeting place - the soaring, skylit atrium of the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building. Part of a nine-level, $218 million addition that will be dedicated Saturday, the glass-covered atrium is the new heart and soul of the west side medical center, which admits 31,000 patients a year and trains more than half of the physicians practicing in Maryland.

Structural engineers continued surveying the damage and searching yesterday for clues to what caused the glass skylight to collapse a day earlier above the eight-story atrium of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley. The hotel remains closed and company officials said it was unknown how soon it would reopen. About 2 p.m. Wednesday, one of two glass roof sections above the hotel's atrium collapsed and fell eight stories, forcing guests to evacuate and a Baltimore County structural engineer to quickly declare the hotel unsafe for occupancy, officials said.

In town from England for her brother's wedding, Esti Angyalfi had just stepped out of her eighth-floor hotel room when, she says, she heard a cracking sound and saw shards of glass raining down on the atrium of the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley. "I was petrified that someone was downstairs in the lobby and would be hurt," said Angyalfi, 26, who hurriedly gathered about a dozen family members in the hotel's parking lot less than two hours before a late-afternoon wedding at a nearby home.

Revitalization of six blocks at the heart of Baltimore's west-side renewal effort has stalled because of a standoff between the city and a private foundation that owns more than half the land. The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation says it intends to push ahead with Baltimore-based Cordish Co. to redevelop its 17 properties included in the so-called superblock project. City economic development officials, who say they have made numerous attempts to strike a deal with the foundation, blame it for holding up the project and say that condemnation would be a last resort.
