    BEYOND THREE MILE ISLAND

    The best data available clearly suggest that the emissions of the radioactive isotopes iodine-131 and cesium-137 from the compound disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in 2011 are now comparable to the total emissions of those isotopes from the Chernobyl accident in 1986.

    These scientific estimates have been published by the national weather agency of Austria, based on detailed weather modeling since the start of the Fukushima accident 14 days ago. — Published 2011.0316

    EZRA STOLLER

    Many of the finest examples of Modern architecture from the late 1940s to the late 1970s were "made" by a master — not necessarily the architect, but the man who captured the essence of Modern architecture through the lens of his large-format camera: Ezra Stoller. — Published 2011.0223

    NATIONAL AIA AWARDS

    On a corner site in Manhattan, within the Greenwich Village Historic District, stands a new 11-story apartment building wrapped in ribbons of glass. The faceted, undulating facade creates a lively contemporary foil to the neighboring masonry structures while reflecting their facades and the greenery of Jackson Square Park.

    Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, this building is one of 27 projects honored by the American Institute of Architects in its AIA Institute Honor Awards for 2011. — Published 2011.0223

    CLIMATE LETTER TO CONGRESS

    We think this public letter, signed by 18 prominent climate scientists, coordinated by the Project on Climate Science, gives a succinct and accurate view of the current situation, addressed to our national legislators.

    Meanwhile, the "Better Buildings Initiative" announced by the White House on February 3, 2011, is an important climate- and architecture-related package moving forward administratively, even as Congress fiddles. —Editors
