It's been a crazy week for this blogger offline, but regular posting should resume next week. I have a ton of stuff backed up from the holiday season, so Where might get busy soon. As for Weekend Reading, we're starting off 2008 with some great material!
ITEM ONE: Sick of suburban sprawl? So are the people behind Project Outrage.
ITEM TWO: Der Spiegel profiles Albert Speer, Jr., son of the devil's architect.
ITEM THREE: Deputydog features a short but visually impressive post on one of my all-time favorite buildings (now, sadly, demolished), Diller + Scofidio's brilliant Blur pavillion. (photo credit)
ITEM FOUR: WorldChanging rounds up the top city-related stories from its 2007 archives.
ITEM FIVE: Social Practice points to this site, Encounters, which "[explores] informal education, lifelong learning, and social action."
ITEM SIX: Collapse author Jared Diamond's much-ballyhooed article on scales of consumption in the NY Times.
ITEM SEVEN: Do cities have color schemes? Brand Avenue takes a look.
Enjoy your weekend. It's 27 degrees in Chicago right now...feels like summer!!
