Central Florida Commuter Rail

You may have noticed in the Orlando Sentinel over the weekend that the Florida Legislature did not approve the necessary funding for Commuter Rail in Central Florida. While there still seems to be a glimmer of hope from Senator Mica's address this afternoon things still appear dim. Having for a time been subjected to the commute on I-4 from Deltona and now working on a station design for Orange County I have been following these events closely. I for one would be very disappointed if this does not happen for our region. Let us know your thoughts on commuter rail.

Florida Cottage Design Competition

The Florida Foundation for Architecture is sponsoring the Florida Cottage Design Competition, specifically for AIA Florida Emerging Professionals!
A jury will select 10 entries, which will be presented at the Fourth Annual Emerging Professionals Conference, October 17-18 in Miami. Cash prizes will be awarded at the Conference for first, second and third place winners!
