Ok so it’s only the Word Search puzzle – but it’s good to know that architecture gets even a small lookin in our popular press.  The puzzle is below and the words to find are: arch, casement, cornice, cross-beam, design, domed, facade, garret, girders, grouting, louvre window, newel, obelisk, partition, paving, posts, renovation, roof, sash, scaffold, skirting board, skyscraper, step, stonework, transom.

So thanks WW for increasing our architectural vocab.  Everyone needs a newel or two in their sentences.  But here’s the Architectural Centre challenge for the word find – how many can you find which are not on the WW list, especially those with architectural potential yet to be defined?
