'Prospect: Utopia shows its true colors', ten years on in the New Urbanist development of Prospect, Colorado, with some excellent photos by RJ Sangosti. More on Prospect's developer, John 'Kiki' Wallace. Meanwhile, New Urbanists ponder over the best way to re-build the Gulf Coast. Others has suggested that New Orleans becomes the next Venice, or even Arcology, a full-scale manifestation of Paolo Soleri's Arcosanti. A more low-tech solution is promised by the H.E.L.P project (House Every Last Person).

The Dutch have some experience of designing on flood plains: 'Afloat in the Flood Zone' looks at the 2nd International Architecture Biennale of Rotterdam, held this Summer and entitled, presciently, 'The Flood'. Featured architects and builders included: Tangram, Waterstudio, Factor, Art Zaaijer and Dura Vermeer. There's an excellent overview of the show is at Core 77 / Harry Beck continues to be one of the most influential figures in information design. Motorway Map applies his circuit board influenced style to Britain's major road network. Check the links for extensive references to other new maps and Underground history, like Simon Clarke's tube map page (via Yoz).

Compact Memory, archived Jewish publications from the turn off the 20th century, and ANNO, Austrian Newspapers Online (both via ask me-fi). See also the British Library's Online Newspaper Archive / Festival is a free 'software multi-lingual speech synthesis' / Interactive bird flu timeline / articles on Floridian antiques / all you ever wanted to know at Garlic World / One Plus Beirut, images of Beirut, including this disturbing assassination diorama. (via pruned) / Exactitudes is a remarkable photography project, charting people 'types', through modes of dress, hairstyles, etc. It's been around for a while, but appears to have been re-presented.

New York Cityscapes / the Silicon Zoo, tiny creatures (and other things) etched into circuit boards - we like the really fine print. See also the gallery of microscope photography / a gallery of Las Vegas Neon / What fancy corporate headquarters really mean: Witold Rybczynski reviews The Edifice Complex in Slate / The 38 Stops, the route of the 38 bus, walked as a tribute by diamond geezer to mark the end of the Routemaster era / improvisational rock from Cyclops Revolution / play The Mystery of the Scream and solve an art crime (via). Only you can't any more.

Related, Stolen Art in Belgium and the Central Registry of looted cultural property from 1933 to 1945 / invisible real estate is on the up: Gamer buys virtual space station / postcards of airports / Mori and Ando scar Omotesando, a scathing critique the new apartments, built by the Mori company and designed by Tadao Ando (see also this great fan site). 'They took away the natural light and replaced it with TV. They destroyed the real experience of strolling outdoors to provide an indoor "sensation." They took away the trees and the ivy and replaced them with concrete. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.' Read this piece on Paul Rudolph in the Bronx to see how another concrete master came unstuck with mass housing.
