In brief: the architecture of disappointment, Alsop Eden, EU energy certificates and Liverpool.
Channel 4 has ditched Alain de Botton's attempts to build the architecture of happiness with Feilden Clegg Bradley.

Alsop is building a £250m biomass power station for the centre of Norwich, inclulding a visitor centre, which is already being dubbed a new Eden project.

New EU Energy Performance certificate criteria will mean that many new air-conditioned office blocks will get a D rating, affecting their value in property portfolios.

And I wrote before about how Liverpool wasignoring the advice of their own design review group, Ludcap; well, it has happened again, with the council approving the £150m plans for Project Jennifer, a new district centre and supermarket, without Ludcap or CABE seeing the proposals. Both groups had previously been extremely critical of the early designs.
