Hosey continues his musings on whether architecture is art: "Do we exist to serve ourselves or everyone else - you know, the people who actually live with our work. True innovation creates tangible value, not just imagery for imagery's sake." -- Beach ponders what looks like the probable gentrification of South London's cultural epicenter: "Peckham possesses two of the characteristics most valuable to property developers: 'authentic culture' and poor people. Where will be left for culture to flourish?" -- Raleigh invites Goldberger to talk about what it takes to be a world-class city: "it needs planning, personality and architects." -- It looks like Copenhagen is putting the brakes on Holl's "controversial sky-high bicycle connection" (one critic calls it "magpie architecture"). -- Wainwright considers a new Thames bridge proposal a "no-brainer - a truly public crossing in a place where it is hard to do so, but its planning process must happen out in the open, not behind closed doors." -- Better late to the High Line party than never: eyefuls of BIG's big plans in Manhattan's Meatpacking District (don't plan on being able to afford it). -- Sydney's Circular Quay to get its "vertical village" as 3XN's 49-story high-rise gets a green light. -- Eyefuls of Libeskind's Modern Art Center in Vilnius, Lithuania, "meant to act as a symbolic gateway between the old and new parts of the city." -- Giants are coming to a city near you: 10-story articulated sculptures and museums to include the "Fee Fi Foo Fum Snack Shack" and products designed by local inventors and artists (we don't know whether to oooh and ahhh - or gasp!). -- A fabulous round-up of articles focusing on sheltering the needy following a disaster. -- Humanitarian architecture: "Architects have to do a lot of unlearning" (competitions and innovation prizes are not necessarily a good thing). -- Hall Kaplan ponders the "mess" that is Malibu and the future of its Legacy Park "in the marrow of this mess." -- Post reports on CTBUH's "stunning comeback from near-collapse" and a new agenda that goes beyond just adding affiliates. -- Weekend diversions: -- Filler cheers "Silver to Steel: The Modern Designs of Peter Muller-Munk," an "illuminating exhibition" in Pittsburgh that confirms "the unjustly neglected Muller-Munk's rightful place" in the pantheon of design (he designed the Unisphere!). -- In Paris, "Renzo Piano Building Workshop. The Piano Method" shines light on the process behind its buildings. -- Rose gets all round-y at London's Serpentine Gallery with Simon Denny's "Products for Organizing." -- SOFTlab goes psychedelic with its "Nova" pavilion that now "brightens cold New York nights with light." -- Two new tomes take "an unconventional approach to discussing Los Angeles architecture." -- Rybczynski uses Goldberger's Gehry biography as "a reminder of how tricky it can be to capture the life of an architect," and as a jumping-off point to discuss others that succeeded - and failed.
