The Japanese duo responsible for the gift-box-stacked New Museum in New York (right) have won architecture's highest honor. (Story on their 2007 Henry exhibition here.)

The "Hell, yes!" sign (an artwork by Ugo Rondinone) does nothing for me. I'd like to see it on the Darth Vader of Seattle's skyline, the Columbia Center tower, attempting its cheer. Now that'd be dark versus light.
