(at least they're talking about it!) -- China is trying to go green above the smog, but old habits are hard to break. -- An environmental technology center in California hopes to be a prototype for visionary communities. -- Hadid and Yeang win competition to make Istanbul a "tourism heaven" (it's worth scrolling through the political rhetoric to see the proposed projects). -- It's a day for looking up: Move over Sears Tower - Fordham Spire wins last zoning clearance to be the tallest in the U.S. (for now, anyway). -- Praise and pans for another set of modernist towers in Chicago. -- The Episcopal Church has towering plans of its own, retail, condos, hotels included. -- Flagship plans for flagpole tower in Brighton (neighbors worry about the great views - into their bedrooms). -- Tributes flow at Seidler memorial. -- Wal-Mart wants to be a good urban neighbor, but not everyone is buying in. -- Call for entries: IIDA/Metropolis First Annual Smart Environments Awards. -- Modernist machines for living on view at the V&A include the Frankfurt Kitchen. -- How could we resist another item about Brad Pitt and architecture (and nary a mention of Gehry)?
