•   We lose Basilico, a master of urban landscape photography.

•   Goodyear says Hoboken, NJ, which lies at or below sea level, "could provide a perfect laboratory where solutions suitable to similar communities could be tested."

•   A new storm barrier (hopefully) in the works for a 4-mile stretch of Manhattan's East River - including a beach under the Brooklyn Bridge (great pix!).

•   Is green infrastructure as widely used as it could be? If not, what's holding us up? Take the survey.

•   Fujimoto tapped for 2013 Serpentine Pavilion - a "cloud-like" structure (with pix to prove it).

•   Brussat on Koolhaas's plans for a "kooky" Venice Biennale: "he may be the perfect choice to trace how modern architecture seeks to crush traditional culture in every nation, as reflected in its architecture."

•   Rosenbaum on the 20 architecture critics who have called on the New York Public Library to reconsider Foster's renovation plan: "I'll say one more thing: Don't mess with Ada Louise, even posthumously!"

•   An "ambitious bid" is in the works to save Preston's iconic Brutalist bus station from demolition.

•   In honor of Valentine's Day: special tours of the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Brooklyn ("Nothing says 'I love you' like wastewater," Birnbaum told us).

•   Eyefuls of "Heartwalk" in Times Square (we saw it yesterday - it's great!).
