Architecture Update...
While the status of the Ground Zero redevelopment is officially back to square one and a total mess, at least the memorial is making headway. The NY Times has an article on the full-scale, fully functional mock-up of a portion of the memorial. Glad to see something positive coming out of the entire mess.

In other architecture news, Forbes has an article on the World's Ugliest Buildings. Among them? A Frank Gehry building, the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Score!

Not a big Nike fan, but the NikeID store looks like a very 'hip' place to experience. The designer 'gets' it. It's all about the shoes... really.

oh man... those were some horrible buildings. at least there are still people that take an objective view of architecture with a main purpose of solving a problem, not a means of showboating BS.

On the other hand, the nikeID store is pretty cool, almost like going to a nike museum.
