•   King is a bit cranky about "Bay Lights" installation on San Francisco's Bay Bridge: "The coolness quotient? Off the chart. But once the novelty fades..." (though he does "concede the resulting show is an ethereal treat," the miles-long comments section is none too happy).

•   Capps reports on Lamster donning the architecture critic hat at the Dallas Morning News, and joining the faculty of the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture (hooray for Mark, but us NYCers will miss him!).

•   Murg puts out the call to help preserve the Eames House: buy a cool print!

•   Hariri Pontarini wins 2013 RAIC Architectural Firm Award.

•   The 2013 Wood WORKS! BC Design Awards winners "enthrall and inspire."
