•   An eyeful of Patkau Architects' revised plans for the Audain Art Museum in Whistler, BC: it's about double in size, but will still blend into the landscape (and they'll only have to cut down one tree!).

•   Campbell is buoyant about the proposed Floatyard for Boston Harbor that "looks like an enormous cubist bug, heaving itself out of the water," but is "as much about creating a sense of urban community as it is about dealing with changing climate...a place where land and sea meet as friends, not enemies."

•   Calgary revitalizes a disused urban gem on St. Patrick's Island.
