Quote of the Day: "Today, it seems strange to me that most local architects, who have lent their names to highly commendable projects, don't seem to be taken seriously, or get the recognition they deserve." —J. Sebastian Sinisi, former reporter for The Denver Post, on architects in Denver. [The Denver Post]
Tweet of the Day:

Map of the Day: The National Trust for Historic Preservation mapped old buildings with a bunch of other city-living measurements such as Walk Score. The maps stem from a report that notes: "Analysis of data from three major American cities shows that areas with a mix of older, smaller buildings perform better than districts with larger, newer structures when tested against a range of economic, social, and environmental outcome measures."
