•   Mattern turns the pages of the fascinating history and challenging future of South Korea's Paju Bookcity: "this is the industrial park remade."

•   A fab travel guide for anyone in or going to France: "5 spectacular architectural additions to the French cultural scene."

•   The architect of the Sydney Convention Centre, who "will likely outlive one of his greatest works," speaks out for the first time: demolition is "rather stupid" - Australia hasn't "grown up, we haven't developed any good manners and we don't protect and look after our good things."

•   An eyeful of Times Square's Valentine by Situ Studio will be made of Hurricane Sandy debris: visitors will stand within a literal and figurative "heart of New York City" (we can't wait!).

•   Brady blasts the Olympic gag: "Our architects should be out there talking about their work."

•   Ulrich makes the case for architecture's power to reduce violence in psychiatric care facilities - and beyond: "it's time we put our growing understanding about stress-reducing design into architectural practice."

•   Betsky basks in a "hidden" California park by Noguchi: "I know of no other three-dimensional, inhabitable construction that makes a larger landscape so immediate, so habitable, and so easy to understand."

•   Lamb Hart's A New Humanism: Part 6: "there seems to be that underlying predilection to find the excitement, the pleasure of adventure, making it as safe as 'possible,' but taking the risk."

•   Call for entries: World Design Capital 2014 designation.
