It seems like I’ve been on a bit of a Shigeru Ban tear in ARCHITECT. Last week I wrote up his design for the new Aspen Art Museum. This week, I was on to his Pritzker win. And the following day I participated in a round table with architecture critics Christopher Hawthorne, Mark Lamster and Alexandra Lange to talk about what it all means — for Ban and the Pritzker.

Check ‘em out. I am so ready to start building stuff with toilet paper tubes now…

Hey Folks:

I’m on KCRW’s Good Food talkin’ ’bout my Lucky Peach story on the donero luchador of East L.A., Abel Nabor Campos (a.k.a. El Asesino Geminis), with none other than Evan Kleiman. The segment contains audio of his cry, which is truly wondrous. Check it out here.

Special thanks to producer Gillian Ferguson for making me sound good while I was sick. And high five to photographer Naomi Harris for letting me nab the image above. (Follow her on Instagram for the further adventures of Maggs the Dog!)

xox,
C.
