•   CTBUH invited a bevy of industry notables to reflect on how the world of tall buildings has changed since 9/11.

•   King x 2: on Apple's "spaceship HQ" in Cupertino: "it's refreshing to see real architectural ambition - even when that ambition translates into a sci-fi fantasy best viewed from a helicopter" + Four cubes that make up the Diane Middlebrook Memorial Writers' Residences "is not a static line of boxes."

•   Chaban finds a High Line building that is not an architectural blockbuster (gasp!).
