Check back on Monday for a round-up of the past year's most interesting Weekend Reading Items. But for now, check out the current crop:
ITEM ONE: WorldChanging on the importance of voluntary simplicity. The article is not directly about cities, but the ideas that it presents are certainly integral to the reimagining of cities as sustainable places.
ITEM TWO: AHI's blog examines a decidedly different vision for the city of the future.
ITEM THREE: Jay Walljasper's new blog, The Ecopolitan, kicks off at National Geographic's site.
ITEM FOUR: TNAC on The Independent's recent list that names London as the current World Capital.
ITEM FIVE: GPS message-in-a-bottle locative art. Pretty cool stuff.
ITEM SIX: The City Room on Hollywood's fascination with the destruction of New York, which Ed Koch cheekily refers to as "edifice envy."
ITEM SEVEN: Lots of dreamy, really wonderful images of the UK over at BLDGBLOG - like the one pictured above.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
