So this is pretty exciting. Our 91-unit affordable housing building (with 17k feet of retail) known as MacArthur Park Apartments, above a Metro station in LA, is a finalist in the the ULI Global Awards for Excellence Competition. This was a six year effort, that we did in collaboration with Roschen Van Cleve Architects. It was a joint development led by McCormack Baron Salazar.

Okay, it's not a whole book, it's just a chapter, but today, the Kindle edition of this anthology was released, http://www.amazon.com/Landscape-Urbanism-Discontents-Dissimulating-ebook/dp/B00CGNQVIE/ref=dp_kinw_strp_1. Chapter 4 of this book, is entitled, "The Metropolis versus the City and it is by me. The print version will be out in a few weeks, still, it's out in some form, and there are a number of very well known folks who write eloquently about urbanism who have essays in this book, and then there are folks like me who are just happy as hell to have been included.

Well, my whole thinking was that we could genuinely learn from the Landscape Urbanism. We can absorb it. Now, though, there's more to absorb, and some of the pitfalls are clearer. When a movement is new it doesn't necessarily sit still enough to work with book lead times.

Well in any case, congratulations, Neal! And I've gotta say that while you're not lesser known in New Urbanist circles, the New Urbanist way of sharing attention with those who are lesser known has certainly fostered a lot of new talent over the years.

Most are courtyard homes of one sort or another, that is the courtyard may not have a four-sided cortile, but often does. In the center of town, these homes have been converted to shops and restaurants and hotels.

Thanks for mentioning it. I'm one of the authors too. I look forward to reading the others' pieces.

Unfortunately, publication has taken so long I have a case of l'esprit de l'escalier.

In Antigua, Guatemala: Two parallel streets one block apart. On celebrates the landscape in subtle ways. The street is framed by walls, but the landscape announces the presence of courtyards and gardens behind the walls. The other street is framed by a colonnade of trees. I like both of them
