I don't want you to get the idea this column tolerates frivolity. But hot on the heels of 'Mis van der Rockke' and that pachydermophilic Walker and Martin site comes this Mirage Studio 7 posting: http: //tinyurl. com/ ypvmdm. Headed 'Separated at Birth', it arranges photos of architects against betterknown lookalikes in a manner familiar to readers of Private Eye. A tidied-up version of a posting of the same name on Archinet, it's a hoot.

More seriously, the divine Zaha is setting up a blog courtesy of the amiable Marcus Fairs, who runs the terri-c but embarrassingly named blog Dezeen. He has wheeled in broadsheet and critical heavies to drum up interest in next month's Design Museum show about Hadid. Check it out as it features something you don't see often: Her Serenity gives a bit of a smile. Witness this momentous event at http: //zahahadidblog.com.

You can get a free subscription to the blog Dezeen at www. dezeen. com.

Rival sites are Chris O'Shea's Pixelsumo at www.pixelsumo. com, Milanbased www. designboom.com and www. mocoloco.com.

Actually just type the name: dezeen, mocoloco etc.
