The Star-Telegram arts writers spotlight what's rocking their world this week:
1 Thom Mayne's Perot Museum of Nature and Science: The American Institute of Architects has bestowed the 2013 AIA Gold Award to Thom Mayne, architect of the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science. This is the profession's highest honor. If you haven't yet seen the stunning structure in Dallas, you can watch it being built through time-lapse video. Visit www.youtube.com/earthcam so you can say you watched its construction from when it was merely a hole in the ground to completion.

2 Following: Criterion Collection on Blu-ray: Before director Christopher Nolan was rebooting Batman for the 21st century and earning critical raves for mind-bending thrillers like Memento, he was turning heads with 1999's Following, another bit of cinematic pretzel logic, newly reissued on Blu-ray by the Criterion Collection. The lean, stylish film centers on an unemployed writer in London whose habit of following strangers, intended to generate material for a novel, takes a harrowing turn and plunges him into the criminal underworld. The disc features commentary with Nolan, trailers, a 1997 Nolan short and a chronological edit of the film.
