•   A call to teach children planning in schools to "create a solid generation of planning participants."

•   Kamin gives thumbs-up and thumbs-down to Trump's new Chicago tower: it "meets the ground superbly and touches the sky weakly."

•   Moneo x 3 tall towers in the heart of Beirut.

•   Lin "unearths the hidden virtues of the banal burrow" that is now the Museum of Chinese in America.

•   In San Diego, "Automatic Cities" explores the "psychological and metaphorical influence of architecture on contemporary visual art."

•   In Ghent, "Designing Together" highlights cooperation between architect and engineer.
