Starting today on the Bleader: Architecture Week

Today we start round two of our weekly online-only feature "Variations on a Theme," in which we devote digital ink to a topic that fascinates us. This week, it's architecture.

Every weekday morning and at various points throughout the week, Reader staffers and occasional guest contributors will produce a post—a personal essay, a longer-form reported story, a photo gallery, or something more off-the-wall—on a respective theme. The theme will often tie into the previous week's lead feature story, but not always. We'll be creating a unified online issue that supplements what we do in print and sustains the conversation around topics we think matter. Every entry in our "Variations on a Theme" series will be updated with links to the rest of the week's entries at the bottom of the post, and you can read an aggregated feed of the week's entries by clicking the tag at the top of each post.

In the event that you were mentally checked out or in a food coma last week, you might have missed the ironically timed Vegetarian Week, an expansion of Kevin Warwick's November 17 cover story "Eat Your Veggies" in which chefs, dietitians, bloggers, and artists collaborated on a guide to vegetarian, vegan, and veg-friendly Chicago.

Architecture Week will similarly continue the conversation sparked by Deanna Isaacs's November 24 profile of renegade architect Stanley Tigerman. Stay tuned this week for a variety of explorations of all things architecture.
