-- Case Study house tours redefined: Giovannini turns his new loft project into experimental exhibition spaces.
-- Architecture and fire don't mix: Delft architecture school (and priceless collections) lost; and Liverpool's oldest building afire only two months after it's transformation into the Bluecoat Arts Centre (fire, earthquakes, typhoons, tornados - is the universe trying to tell us something?).

-- Southampton is first outside London to launch a City Vision Centre to let the public help shape the city's future.

-- One solution for population challenge: a 2-mile-high termite tower (great pix).
-- Tiny Welsh village draws big names to plan its green future.
-- Ouroussoff's take on Foster's Parke-Bernet redesign to preserve peace: "new version suggests an excessive desire not to offend…well mannered if complacent" (pix to prove it - and we had such high hopes).

-- Big plans to get San Francisco's old international terminal to fly again.
-- Brits to design Spanish Antarctic Research Station.
-- An eyeful of notable retail projects.

-- Vinoly ups the ante mightily for fellowship program.
-- Michigan firm designs its own building that pushes the box show people "you don't have to build a box."
-- A San Francisco architect puts a modern spin on classic forms.
