The first INTBAU World Congress: Local Solutions to Global Challenges took place in London on 18th and 19th February 2015. Designed to build on INTBAU’s track record of international conference activity, the World Congress’ programme of special events attracted media and public attention to the individuals, businesses and communities around the world who work to create sustainable solutions to the modern challenges of urban life. INTBAU’s Patron, HRH The Prince of Wales, hosted a report-back session to conclude the World Congress, which strengthened delegates’ and the INTBAU network’s commitment to further action.

Very perceptive, David, of most architects' failure to recognize that the problem is not the messaging, but the message itself.

Good for Traci L. Slatton for calling out the New York Times on their shoddy coverage of the Gehry Ike Memorial.
If there is never going to be an open competition for the Eisenhower Memorial, and if, in fact, Gehry's self-aggrandizing design is going to be inflicted as a fait accompli on this nation, then at least show us where the money has all gone....

For this Classical Comments piece we will deal with some architectural minutiae—the transition from Roman-style moldings to Greek ones that took place in the late 18th century. Until the publication in 1762 of the first volume of James Stuart and Nicholas Revett's The Antiquities of Athens ...

Architecture is suffering a crisis of confidence. More and more mainstream figures in the field are admitting that the profession has lost its way.
