A "lapsed architect has humorously serious take on Sydney's attempt "rid the world of the bad taste" and "raise the standard of our aesthetic environment" with a pattern book to standardize the design of new buildings. Donald Trump and SOM have redeemed themselves in Chicago. New development and housing issues abound. A new school of architecture in Canada will be invisible? An American firm wins the competition to design a memorial to Princess Diana in Hyde Park. Croatia hopes to be the next hot tourist destination. A 100-year-old hospital in Barcelona was ahead of its time in using natural light for its therapeutic benefits. The National Building Museum has an opening for a new president…and much more.
