•   Weinstein cheers Reisner's exuberant interviews with 16 architects in "Architecture and Beauty" (a touch of Keats included).

•   A cautionary tale offered by NYC architects to those who think they've hit a jackpot with a project in China (apparently architects from elsewhere are also chiming in).

•   We posted the news yesterday that Mayslits Kassif Architecture's Tel Aviv Port won big; today, an amazing offering of images (the before/after's are most intriguing).

•   Q&A with Beverly Willis re: the making of "A Girl Is a Fellow Here," and how her rough childhood was a blessing in disguise: "I learned to stand up for when I entered the professional world, it was second-nature...I gave as good as I got" (now if only the paper would correct her age - she's only 82 - who needs 8 years added, no matter how old/young?!!?).

•   An eyeful of some architectural wonders in Seoul.

•   To balance that depressing voyage, take a look at the result of aerial photographer Arthus-Bertrand's five-year odyssey: "Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet" (stunning, indeed!).
