•   Caldwell analyzes the underlying issues surrounding plans for Contemporary Art Museum at the Presidio in San Francisco: "hubris and the commonweal."

•   Pittsburgh finds recession-era advantages in its slow-growth legacy, becoming a leader in the field of sustainable building now serving the city well during the economic downturn.

•   Bronx reborn: beyond Yankee Stadium, unsung architects are "at work on more modest, community-driven developments" using "creative tactics to cultivate a greener, socially sustainable future."

•   MacArthur Foundation pumps $32 million into affordable housing (HUD promises to help rather than hinder - let's hope that's true!).

•   A call for architects to become agents of change.

•   Glancey says "costs may be spiraling for Tate's £215m pyramid, but I think the result will be worth every penny."

•   Eyefuls of Rogers' British Museum expansion, and Levete's "twisting coil" complex for Bangkok.

•   Originality in the digital age, or why many architects keep back issues of architectural magazines: "to stanch the fear of repeating someone else's work" (or not).

•   Call for entries/nominations: Aga Khan Award for Architecture.

•   Winners all: NZIA 2009 Architecture Awards. - The long list for WAN Education Award 2009 (great pix!). - A look at Syracuse University's "From the Ground Up: Innovative Green Homes" competition winners (and, yes, they will be built).

•   Two we couldn't resist: "grow" a tree on your iPhone (for $4.99) that will plant a real tree in New Orleans. - And an eyeful of the world's first flying hotel - The Hotelicopter (it could be for real, but this is April Fools Day&hellip).
