'When architects run amok' (registration required, sadly), another take on the conservation of modern buildings. Richard Neutra's Gettysburg Cyclorama is due for demolition in 2007. Why? Because calls to return the site, location of the Battle of Gettysburg, back to how it was at the time of the battle in 1863 are far more compelling than Neutra's rather austere 1960s structure. Turns out that the age of memorialising the Civil War with grandiose architectural statements has passed: "Meanwhile, for many Americans, the Civil War has evolved from history to leisure pursuit." It's not the only Civil War Cyclorama - there's also one at Fulton, Atlanta. Naturally, not everyone is happy. Via Land Living.

More architecture. The Kilowatt house, a peaen to the new electric age, has been restored and is up for sale / London Skyline, 60 views of the Gherkin (via dezain) / Section 2, a new venture for web-based design, photography and more, edited by Tom Lardner and kicking off with Scratchplate Saints, rock graphics by Joel Lardner (familiar-sounding surname...?)

Matter Magazine, compact and delightful, although the stories are often dark and disturbing. Other literary things, snipped from their links: Mslexia ('for women who write,' a site for a print-based publication), Fine Words (a web-based publication), which kicks off with some poetry, Build magazine.

Skateboards, sketches and Wundbabots at Furnitureclub (via Robocore) / lots of guns in the new issue of Delve Magazine / railroads of the former Soviet Union, via the Map Room, who also links to the new Las Vegas monorail, which will banish the grim trudge up and down the strip. Although I suspect the empty lots have all gone now.

Weblog round-up: firmly ambivalent, Keys Corner, Coincidences, Akkams Razor / Tag the Dog, the Dutch Daily Oliver (still leaping happily around the South of France) / Sputnik, more retro style links, e.g. Retrofuture. The world is very retro these days. I'm not sure what it means just yet, but I don't think it's wholly good.

The art direction on The Village, M.Night Shyamalan's latest movie, looks fantastic - all simple, white painted houses, acres of green, rolling hills and, typically, a menacing presence in the woods. The website conjurs up this atmosphere beautifully, with scratchy, twittering audio design that creeps the hell out of you. It reminded me of Danish Soundscapes (designed by Ordinary Kids) and Jonathan Clarke's Afterlife: Streatham Cemetery. See the film's trailer.

Two fascinating zoology posts at memepool, on Ligers, Tigons and Humanzees (very Margaret Atwood, whose own site is called Owtoad, and whose book Oryx and Crake revelled in hybrid creatures).

Just what is the perfect angle to staple paper? (via me-fi, which declares 'I'm fed up with hearing about the beauty of small things.') / Mark M Lucas has many, many pictures of terrifying insects. Urgh / Atari Noise / Silly Putty Physics Experiment, via That's How it Happened.
