This weekend's focus appeared to be architects and architcture...or maybe that was just what we found interesting as we flipped through H&G. We thank reader Anh-Minh Le for the highlight: a piece on a modern architect who's raising both the design aesthetic and eyebrows in the Penninsula's suburbs. A few other good bits are detailed after the jump.
• Rethinking the suburban home: Architect Gordana Pavlovic brings light and clutter-free simplicity to residences in South Bay.
• AROUND THE HOUSE By Susan Fornoff: Susan's best picks included Consumer Reports' new magazine, ShopSmart, and the debut of "The Architecture of Ratcliff," a book on a local design firm founded back in 1906.
• Suburban property setbacks don't make sense anymore : Arrol Gellner would like to see a revival of the enclosed courtyard house plan in America's suburbs.
