Reports: Housing construction turns a corner
By Michael J. Berens
After another disappointing start to the year, housing appears to have gained traction. Industry sources are reporting prerecession levels of activity. Builder and realtor confidence are up, boosted by positive signs in both the single-family and multifamily sectors. The general consensus appears to be that housing construction will continue to grow for the remainder of the year, at a gradual pace but perhaps with more consistency than in previous years.

'Architecture is losing its capacity to inspire people'
Metropolis
Today, architects are too eager to define their buildings and expertise in specialist and quantifiable terms. Of course, design programs such as BIM advance certain aspects of practice, much in the same way that digital production has advanced film. But architecture's most pressing questions are larger than any technical developments. This flattening of the discipline stems from our education system, which is becoming increasingly driven by the bottom line. Instead, designers should be working to demonstrate the cultural contributions that architecture can make.
