London's Strata Tower

London's Strata Tower received the 2010 Carbuncle Cup, Building Design's dubious annual award given in recognition of the most alarmingly hideous building erected in the United Kingdom in the past year.

Philip Johnson's drawings and photographs (thoughts on paper)

In other architecture news this week, a large collection of design sketches, drawings and renderings from Philip Johnson's architectural practice are headed to market. Philip Johnson's Glass House (built in 1949), is considered to be one of the world's most beautiful examples of modern architecture, and is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
