This lengthy and fascinating article outlines the deep, broad and complex idea of architecture as one would expect of this marvel-filled nation with it's roots in centuries of history; a fact that is at the forefront every designer's consciousness while designing for an ambitious and exciting future.
A very good read indeed.

Celebrating Thomas More's UTOPIA in ways that you won't easily believe seems an excellent thing to do and be part of this year if you are lucky enough to get yourself to Somerset House and all the other locations that form part of this amazing, year long, series of talks, exhibitions, happenings and explorations.
Imagine a future in the clouds, why public art should be labeled or a new type font. Just imagine.

"You (really) don't know what you've lost 'til it's gone". This piece by Mary O'Hara is her attempt to ring that huge bell we need to hear...our Libraries Are Closing!
Are we crazy? Do we not realise that in India, where books and Internet access are held in such high esteem due to their rarity, that it's citizens are clamouring for libraries to be open and to actually have books in them?
We who have money and resources; educated librarians and the universities to train them disregard our privilege. We disdain library services. We ignore the young children who hunger for knowledge and let slip our gift of public libraries through our avarous fingers. What are we thinking?
The vibrant, brilliance of a country's success rests upon an educated citizenry.
Want your country to spiral down into disruption and encamped violence? Then close your schools, teach lies in those that are left open, encourage blind faith in history books and network TV News Readers and do away with your libraries. Your're done. We're all done!
Strangely enough some people aren't yet aware of this.
But you should be.
