  1. Rightmove.co.uk - Featured Collections

    Sure I’ve said this before, but I hope Rightmove, Zoopla, and/or estate agents are archiving photos. It’d be an amazing resource for historians.

  2. Municipal Dreams

    A blog with long posts about the history of UK social housing, planning, etc. (via Wowhaus)

  3. Where will we live? by James Meek (LRB)

    Linked to by everyone, for good reason. A good, long piece about the UK’s history of council and social housing, the architecture and planning, and where we are now. As with so many policy areas, I wish one of the main parties wanted to do something bold, different and good.

  4. Homework and Jacuzzis as Dorms Move to McMansions in California - NYTimes.com

    Big, cul-de-sac houses in America rented cheap by students. These cut-off developments are ripe to become the same kind of dead-end ghettos as neglected estates and 60s high-rises. (via @GreatDismal)

  5. Human landscapes in SW Florida - The Big Picture - Boston.com

    Every single aerial photo is stunning, go look. Photos of housing developments, many undeveloped. I wouldn’t want to live in any of them. (via Kottke)

  6. Property search engine for homes for sale & property to rent in the UK - Globrix

    Not a bad interface for property searches. Bookmarking because I like window shopping (or being nosey) and I’ll forget the meaningless URL.

  7. Op-Ed Contributor - For Sale - The $100 House - NYTimes.com

    This is fascinating, showing a way the make-up of parts of cities could change drastically due to the recession. Although I wonder whether the journalist is extrapolating from an isolated one-off incident. (via Kottke)

  8. William Heath’s blog » A place to live

    William Heath is looking for a place to create a “co-housing” project - people living slightly communally. The search is interesting.

  9. A Low Impact Woodland Home

    The houses are a bit cutesy for my liking, but working on them (or something similarly self-buildy) over the summer would be interesting. If, you know, one didn’t have to work.

  10. Panoramic photograph of suburban sprawl near San Ramon, California | Matt Jalbert

    Unreal-looking. Would be great to see this animated over a decade or two. (via Kottke again. He has such good links.)
