Today's News - July 1, 2002

Hot-off-the-press: Steven Holl has won out over David Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron, Machado & Silvetti, and Norman Foster & Partners for the LA County Natural History Museum. (We'll have to wait until fall 2003 for a glimpse of the $200-300 million master plan, and construction won't start until 2006.)

Then, there's the rest of the news that includes: an Edward Durell Stone-designed museum in Massachusetts gets more respect than his Columbus Circle (Manhattan) endeavor; the head of the Guggenheim is praised and accused for being more interested in architecture than art; Renzo Piano in San Francisco next week; Michael Sorkin eloquently explores planned communities in India; and new housing news from China lists one participating architects as "the eldest son of famous architect Ieoh Ming Pei" and "noted US designers" (now, there's a research project for us!).
