re Lombard Bands[edit]

Respectfully suggest that these are not decorative but as originally designed were specific features that marked the site of wooden joists, the ends of which needed to be sited squarely and fully on the full width of the wall and as such the ends would be exposed to the elements and start rotting. The solution to this problem, adopted by masons was to construct individual extensions outwards of the stone work so that the ends are protected I can finds no reference to support this view M G Rogers Building Stones Consultant Rugby tel 01788 821869

Munger Hall UCSB[edit]

I just started a draft for Munger Hall at the University of California, Santa Barbara. There has been some controversy as the building is planned to not include windows in most of the rooms. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you, Thriley (talk) 15:45, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

FAR for IG Farben Building[edit]

I have nominated IG Farben Building for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Z1720 (talk) 16:10, 31 October 2021 (UTC)

Proposed new taskforce[edit]

Hi, I have recently wondered if there is any scope for converting the defunct WP Piers into a taskforce of Architecture (it's already archived in a sub-section of architecture). There is a small number of editors creating new article piers and growing existing ones, including myself, and I feel it would help also to have some better visibility of current ratings on existing pier articles (Stub, C, B etc). This doesn't have to be UK exclusive, even though the old wikiproject at times seemed like it was. How may I best propose this for consideration? Bungle (talkcontribs) 19:54, 4 November 2021 (UTC)

Nanjing Vertical Forest or Nanjing Green Forest[edit]

What happened to the User:Shiftchange/Draft/Nanjing Vertical Forest? Plenty of construction articles then nothing about its completion or progress. No wonder we don't have an article. - Shiftchange (talk) 04:47, 23 December 2021 (UTC)

RfC on capitalization of buildings[edit]

There is an RfC going on on whether the names of two buildings, the South Houses and North Houses at Caltech, should be capitalized. The question is whether these names are proper nouns, and whether the amount of sources capitalizing them is a "substantial majority". Your comments and !votes are appreciated.
