From Architecture School to Practice: How Famous and Emerging Figures Made the Transition

Architecture school is a place of experiment and a testing ground for innovative ideas. The academic work and student projects can bring to light the focus of an entire career, shape the backbone for an architectural theory, and crystalize values. How do their studies and formative years reflect on the later work of different architects? Taking a journey along decades, we explore the transition from architecture school to practice, the reverberance of academic explorations and early projects in the work of several architects and practices, highlighting the different pivotal steps that have shaped the beginning of their architectural journey.

Argentine officials search home of Maradona’s doctor while investigating soccer star’s death

BUENOS AIRES — Argentine justice officials are investigating the death of soccer star Diego Maradona and ordered the search of properties of his personal doctor on Sunday, a local prosecutor’s office said.

Maradona died at age 60 of a heart attack on Wednesday. The search order was requested by prosecutors in the affluent Buenos Aires suburb San Isidro and signed by a local judge, according to a statement issued by the prosecutor’s office.

Hong Kong’s leader has ‘piles of cash’ at home after US sanctions

Hong Kong’s leader has said she is being forced to receive her salary in cash because of US sanctions, saying she has no access to banking services despite the prevalence of mainland Chinese institutions in the city.

Carrie Lam, on whom the US imposed sanctions alongside 14 other Chinese and Hong Kong officials over Beijing’s imposition of a national security law on the territory in June, said she had “piles of cash” at home.

As part of the measures, the US has threatened secondary sanctions against financial institutions that continue to deal with the individuals, a potentially crippling prospect even for mainland Chinese banks because of their need to deal in dollars.

“Sitting in front of you is a chief executive [of Hong Kong] who has no banking services made available to her. I’m using cash every day, for all the things,” Ms Lam said in a television interview on
