w.o.p JAN 28 | Mark Salvatus URBAN PLAN + Andrea Teran MONTHLY PERIOD READINGS

Feeble attempts to conjecture cosmic collisions and astrological fluctuations should be shamelessly dismissed as purely superstitious. In no way can the backward movement of Mercury towards the sun affect interpersonal communication, business, travel and the like. Delays and introspection are of course, caused by more sinister emergent events such as a freak road accident, broken alarm clocks, crowded commuter trains, engine trouble, a new US president, police raid or even the partial eclipse of the sun.
Still the only thing that can derail utopian visions of urban life can come from lack of inspiration or sleep, perhaps. So come over this Wednesday as we continue to sketch the cities we love most as Mark Salvatus invites Kristoffer ArdeƱa, Jay Pacena, Mannet Villariba and Wesley Valenzuela for another weekly affair. And because nothing is ever enough, Andrea Teran's Monthly Period Readings come back after a two months hiatus (thanks to that overdrawn holiday back in 2008) hosting Writers in Conversation between Mabi David and Mark Cayanan. As usual we expect you to beat that midweek hump, see you on Wednesday.

Uy Mark. I heard about one housing project somewhere in the world/philippines where the volunteers/workers/agency who are working with squatter communities build only the bathroom; the residents then build the rest of the house around the bathroom, with idea that the most crucial part of any housing project is proper sanitation. wish i could remember where i heard about this!
