A couple of quick links to things I've written elesewhere, and a plug.

Firstly, my piece about speedboats which somewhat outrageously involved a trip to a boat yard and a sea trial in northern Italy is online at Iconeye

The Architecture and Infrastructure issue of AR Australia is also out which includes an essay by me about electricity pylons. I have another piece in the upcoming issue of AR looking at retro-fitting office blocks in south London for residential and other uses.

Finally on the link front, my review of the Shard is in the latest issue of Domus. Also in Domus this month is an excellent piece by Justin McGuirk on London's housing crisis (see previous posts ad nauseum). 

Finally, finally, a quick plug for Jeffrey Adjei, one of my students from last year's UCA Canterbury diploma studio, who won the Adaptable Futures international design competition. His project explored recent planning legislation such as the community right to build, village green status and neighbourhood plans to propose a kind of self-build civic architecture for New Addington, in Croydon.

The image at the top of the post is one of two remarkable panoramic views of the process drawn by Jeffrey to illustrate the project.
