The Good Oil All occupations, of course, should be gender-neutral. Much as we hate to say it, we are led to conclude that women often get a raw deal in their education in architecture school, and in their careers in architectural practice. You should also take a look at Part 2 of this article, in which we come to a very, very reluctant conclusion. Don't send us a nasty email about how we discourage women from entering architecture. We have no intention of doing so.

In 2010, Building Futures will continue to host its popular series of public debates around provocative contemporary and futures oriented issues. In 2009, the series saw collaborations with Urban Lab at UCL and the BFI and we will be forming new partners to bring in new participants. The series is a lively and informal way of reaching out to new and diverse audiences and a great opportunity to guage opinion and generate feedback on a range of issues that matter not just to architects, but to the wider public.

If you do not designate your own template, AutoCAD will use a default one. A template is a drawing file that includes some of the following settings: Unit type and precision ( DDRMODES ) Drawing limits ( LIMITS ) Snap, Grid, and Ortho settings (Status Bar) Layer organization ( LA ) Title blocks ( Tutorial ) Dimension and text styles ( DDIM, ST ) Linetypes ( LT ) Common blocks ( Tutorial ) In most cases, you do not want to set these things every time you begin a drawing.

Animal Architecture , founded in 2009 by Jonathan LaRocca and Ned Dodington, is currently on the hunt for "exciting projects that engage the lives, minds and behaviors of our alternate, sometimes familiar companion species—insects, birds, mammals, fish and microorganisms—each one with unique ways of world-making." [Images: The " Bee Station " by Jamie Hutchison]. Animal Architecture thus "invites your critical and unpublished essays and projects to address how architecture can mediate and encourage multiple new ways of species learning and benefiting from each other—or as we say it here: to illustrate cospecies coshaping."
