As a distraction from "The Calatrava", I offer the following tidbits:
:: Pamphlet Architecture announces its call for entries for issue #28. This is a great opportunity for "architects, designers, theorists, urbanists, and landscape architects to publish their designs, manifestos, ideas, theories, ruminations, hopes, and insights for the future of the designed and built world." Deadline is October 10. Click link above for more information.
:: Lynn Becker has a new blog, ArchitectureChicago Plus, "a place to find out what's going on in Chicago's architectural community, as well as for discussions on its current state and future potential."
:: Following on the heels of the recent archi-boom in Chicago, the Chicago Tribune now has a permanent outpost for architecture articles, titled cityscape. (Thanks to Lil'G for this head's up)
