1) Two high-end high rises were announced this week in New York City. Herzog & de Meuron versus Rem Koolhaas for dominance of the city's skyline and headlines. Cast your vote now. [Curbed]
2) Concluding their tour of John Lautner houses, Curbed LA take a tour of the Jacobsen Residence, opened as part of the Hammer Museum's Lautner Retrospective. [Curbed LA]
3) Just in time to replace Olafur Eliasson's underwheliming waterfalls, a New York artist is building urban treehouses in the city's Madison Square Park. Taking a cue from Berkeley's tree-hugging protesters, perhaps? [Curbed]
