Ninjas on the ‘net


[Image: The Varying Impact of Gas Prices, from The New York Times]

To be honest, I had made it through most of the week without getting sucked through the black hole that we call the internet while reading up on some random topic. That is until yesterday, when I started reading The Concrete Dragon: China’s Urban Revolution and What it Means for the World [recently provided to AMNP courtesy of Princeton Architectural Press – expect a review when I’ve finished it] – I then proceeded to lose myself in these here inter-webs, reading about the cultural revolution [check out these propaganda posters], the people’s republic since Mao, and the history of China in general.

Regardless, I’ve once again [just barely] escaped with my life – however, expect lots on China in the near future. But for now, here’s some other architecture+design related goodness from the web:

– for starters [and speaking of China], peep the New York Times‘ article I’m the Designer. My Client’s the Autocrat.

ENR has a list of the top 100 green design firms

materialicious brings us the LEED platinum greensburg 547 art center, by studio804

BLDGBLOG explores the vast emptiness of the South China Mall

– the Sydney Morning Herald sat down with our ninja Andrew Maynard a few weeks ago for this video interview

Pruned features some controversial Lily Pads [minus the controversy]

The Independent hits us with an urban farmer on a mission

Where proposes an interesting [personal] exercise in urban navigation

– have you seen AMNP in Modern Design Magazine [June 2008 issue] yet? Don’t sleep…

– And last but most definitely not least – don’t forget about the rest of the MNP [My Ninja Please!] crew: the parent site, MyNinjaPlease; MusicMNP; GreenMNP; PolitricksMNP; and RobotNinja.
