Congrats to Thom

Thom Mayne's tower for Paris will be the largest in Europe, and surely destined to be a tourist destination. It's as iconic as Gehry's Guggenheim at Bilbao.

Reverse Graffiti

The City of Leeds is telling Paul Curtis he's breaking the Law. He's leaving large words on walls.... by selectively cleaning them. So: what is the crime?
