On the Stands: Innovative Home, Spring Issue

Innovative Homes started with such promise and ambitions, proceeded to be completely confused and unfocused, and then last issue started getting interesting. The Spring issue sharpens its focus still more, with a solid issue on green design and smaller projects. Built works include a very interesting Dallas condo project called Buzz Lofts, nice cubes by Steven Dynia and the Alexander Residences by Pb Elemental, an interesting design/build firm out of Seattle. There is a good article on green flooring, some neat picks in the "science of small" and Alison Rich wrote an excellent article on understanding "shades of green." It is the best effort yet.

Useless empty website at ::innovative home and still grossly overpriced; Last issue I complained that the Canadian price should not be three dollars higher than the American when the dollars were at par; this month they simply removed the American price from the magazine and left the Canadian price at $12.95, which I think is a nasty trick.
