First steps taken to establish global green building standards. - Glancey is impressed with the new generation of Chinese architects - and takes a cold stroll through Thames Town (he is not amused). - Dyckhoff finds out why H&deM take an anti-Spielberg stance to working in China: "It would be arrogant not to engage" (guess which one is "the politician, with his shaven skull and sunken, unsmiling cheeks" and which is "a bit tortured, introverted, with mad, wiry hair"). - Going green can be a hard sell in India, but one architect has figured out how. - Depending on who you talk to, a massive canal project in South Korea will be a new source of income: "tourists sailing down a waterway blasted though the hills" or "set off an environmental catastrophe." - Thumbs-up/thumbs-down for new niche in the tourism biz: slum visits. - An extreme home makeover TV show in Kenya to illustrate how practical improvements can benefit poor farming families. - Modernism's leaky roof: "the cold heart of modern architecture has broken down" (so just move your chair). - Can the anti-McMansion movement fatten architects' wallets? - Historic preservation in Denver "seems to be gasping for air," and Chandler wants to know why. - A building in the Bronx on the verge of a "transformation that urban planners dream of" (but not such good news for those already there). - Russell talks to not-quite-yet-post-Guggenheim Krens. - Foster's next Abu Dhabi adventure will be "voluptuous" and "swathed in a skin of shimmering stripes." - Big ideas for Cleveland museum expansion (but Mercedes-Benz vision being trimmed back to a Cadillac or even Ford). - Heathcote is impressed with Brit Insurance Design Awards shortlist. - Glancey pays tribute to Pawley. -- Call for entries: Crystal Vision International Design Competition. - Hume ponders how nature makes fools of architects in Toronto, born out by high winds vs. a RIBA Award-winning building in Liverpool.
