Today's News - June 24, 2002

It is a Michael Maltzan Monday with three different takes on New York's MoMA Queens and a new museum commission in California. If you can't make it to either Rome or San Diego, the reviews of Zaha Hadid and Venturi Scott Brown exhibitions are worth a read. There are big plans in Syracuse to reinvent the mall experience (watch out Disney and Mall of America!). The commentary on the sad state of urban planning in Bermuda's capital city echoes the plight of many urban centers…and much, much more.
