•   Rykwert named 2014 RIBA Royal Gold Medalist: Pearman offers praise for his 60 years of "fruitful conversation with architecture" + Parry's citation + Murray's Q&A with Rykwert: "I've always thought of myself as an architect working with words."

•   Speaking of words, Litman takes issue with the word "issues" (and others): it is "weak" planning language.

•   Clemence cheers Lina Bo Bardi finally gaining recognition: "she did not consider herself a feminist, but with her fearless attitude towards the mostly male-dominated profession, she inspired women everywhere."

•   The Architectural History of Pepsi-Cola, Part 1 & 2: it "took a calculated risk with their slogan, their logo, and their architects. And they all paid off."

•   Meanwhile, FLW's Taliesin West debates how to keep its accreditation "while keeping the spirit of the school's founder."
