According to news on BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/7798139.stm), in Brussels the council wants to either force landlords to restore derelict buildings or buy them up itself, to upgrade areas surrounding the Grand Place. Experince shows that, focusing on physical environment and its static preservation through enforcement will not encourage long term liveliness of historic environments. Rather, a steril appearance and a deserted urban quarter (outside the tourism seasons) might be promoted.

the exhibition entitled "Fuck Architects" by mounir fatmi is an interesting one discussing architects and philosophers in relation to their education and background and how they repeat the things thought rather than actually creating something new?! The exhibition will be on until 04.01.09

Castelvecchio Museum in Verona is a largely published building as it can be considered as a pioneer work of historic building remodellings. After more than four decades of its completion, it is interesting to see how influential the building still is. Especially the way it challenges the value of a straight-forward 'authenticity' concept is noteworthy.
