- Of late, I’ve noticed a lot of websites that are classifying their work and/or stories into quickly searchable and/or readable groups. Most recently, the new Diller Scofidio + Renfro site. In that vain, Tomorrow’s Thoughts Today, a blog “Exploring the consequences of fantastic, perverse, and underrated urbanisms,” makes its wildly entertaining content accessible and easy to digest. One my new favorite sites.
- And speaking of website classification systems…I know I’m late to the party here, but the Copenhagen-based BIG has to be one of the most relevant offices working today. Counterstrike maps of their buildings? Parkour videos in their buildings? Lego construction exhibitions? Need I continue?
- Junk Jet no.2 says hello.
- A thoughtful series of posts at Where about a topic close to the heart of anyone interested in blogging, architecture, and urbanism: Notes About the Future of Urban Journalism. Part 1 and Part 2
- Bay Area readers should check out the Oakland Space Academy.
