From Sunday's print edition I?ve never liked being out of the paper for too long. When my byline disappears, I am assume readers think one of three things: A) I got lazy; B) I got fired; C) I?m dead. Architects who?ve been on the receiving end of my critical volleys might rejoice if B or C transpired. Sorry to disappoint them. …

One of the most memorable details at Frank Lloyd Wright's Ravine Bluffs subdivision in Glencoe is in need of some serious TLC. The subdivision, which includes six Wright-designed houses and three boldly sculpted  markers of poured concrete, was built in 1915 for developer Sherman Booth. But Chicago's brutal climate has taken its toll on the markers, aided by Wright's characteristically cavalier treatment of such nagging, day-to-day realities. As Chicago …

From today's print edition Does it make sense to turn on-street parking spaces into miniature urban parks and plazas where people can sit, eat, check their mobile phones, read a book, take a catnap or watch the world go by? Chicago is about to find out. With the blessing of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the city now has two of these miniparks, called …

Despite growing pleas from historic preservationists to save old Prentice Women's Hospital, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration made clear on two fronts Thursday that it is not yet ready to take a public stand on the fate of the concrete, clover leaf-shaped high-rise. Asked about last week's "save Prentice" letter, which was signed by more than 60 architects, including Frank Gehry, and sent to Emanuel, a mayoral spokeswoman emailed: "As you …

As Robert Feder reported back in May, I'll get a chance to recharge my batteries as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard during the coming academic year. The fellowship starts in late August. I plan to be back in the Tribune's pages in July 2013. After people hear about this amazing opportunity for a mid-career break, they invariably ask: "Who's going to replace you?" Here's the answer: two highly-qualified journalists who can be counted upon to provide excellent coverage of …

Time is the enemy of old buildings, breaking them down just as it breaks people down. But time can save them as well as provide the attractive patina of age. Time -- or, more accurately, the passage of time -- can upend the economic assumptions on which real estate deals are built. It can allow historic preservationists to drum up popular …

In San Francisco, they?re called ?parklets.? In Chicago, the name is ?people spots.? Whatever term you use, these miniature parks and plazas are about to get a trial run here. The concept, backed by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, is being tried out in the North Side Andersonville neighborhood at 5228 N. Clark St. Workers were putting the finishing touches on Chicago?s first semi-permanent …

The pressure is building on Mayor Rahm Emanuel to save Bertrand Goldberg's old Prentice Women's Hospital. Yesterday, Frank Gehry and other prominent architects urged Emanuel to preserve the building. Today, it's the editorial page of the Chicago Sun-Times. In a well-written, well-argued piece, the newspaper states:  "The history of Chicago architecture is one of considerable regret, a history of lost treasures that could have been saved. Louis …
