ArcSpace brings us eyefuls of images from the Danish Architecture Centre's new exhibition "Abandoned" that looks at "what happens when the humans leave and nature takes over" - and a call for your pictures of abandoned places. -- Hawthorne offers a thoughtful take on the "surprisingly sleek architecture of the GOP convention - a shotgun marriage of Star Trek and Macbook modern" (with only a slight touch of snark). -- King is invited to Denver by some who are concerned that the city's "development boom is bringing pleasure to real estate investors but pain to everyone else" (cheer up, SF - you're "in better shape than our self-absorbed bickering would suggest"). -- Bevan parses plans for Parry's super-tall London tower to rival The Shard that, if approved, will be "an elegant 73-story statement of solidity rather than faux- transparency." -- Osborne has high hopes for Ban's first Canadian project in Vancouver, set to be the world's tallest timber tower (its height as yet unknown) - "part of a growing movement in building superstructures made of wood." -- Dunlap gets a sneak peek at Holl's waterfront Queens Library: "It will not suit everyone's taste. But no one will overlook it" (and oh, those views!). -- Pedersen posts a great two-part Q&A with Kimmelman re: "Aravena, the Pritzker, and the opportunities for architects to reshape the world" + "The challenges - and opportunities - facing New York." -- Kamin bemoans that 10 FLW-designed buildings didn't make the cut for UNESCO's World Heritage List; Corbu's 17 sites making the list "would have wounded the master's ego" (but there's still hope!). -- Farago bids a fond farewell to the Four Seasons: "We should have known, when the Picasso got axed, that the end was coming" (but he does get to wade into the pool!). -- And, just because...the Four Seasons online auction catalogue: Philip Johnson's fabled Table 32 estimate: $3,000 - 5,000. -- The Canada Council for the Arts names this year's architecture prize winners: Dubbeldam Architecture + Design and Studio Junction Inc. -- Call for entries (deadline looms!): 2016 FX International Interior Design Awards. -- Weekend diversions: -- Denise Scott Brown writes about her "colorful and analytic use of photography," with eyefuls of images from her "Wayward Eye" show at the Venice Biennale (and upcoming book). -- Sam Crawford picks his faves at the Venice Biennale: "The best exhibits spaced their ideas with clarity - leaving visitors wanting more; the worst were unintelligible, leaving visitors wanting a comfortable spot for a nap." -- Raskin cheers "EXTRA-ORDINARY: New Practices in Chilean Architecture" at NYC's Center for Architecture that highlights 17 "passionate, strong designers in the comparatively small country." -- "Theaster Gates: How to Build a House Museum" at the Art Gallery of Ontario is a series of large-scale installations that "upends the conservative customs associated with house museums." -- "It Takes a Community" at the AIA's HQ in Washington, DC, and online "showcases community-centric design concepts by emerging professionals." -- Homs-based architect Marwa al-Sabouni talks to NPR's McEvers re: her oh-so-eloquent new book, "The Battle For Home: The Memoir Of A Syrian Architect" (we're reading it now - and so should everyone!).
