Today's News - July 30, 2002

The World Architecture Awards are announced: New York has a new spotlight (and Sydney touts its own). Of course, the major spotlight is still Ground Zero: The powers-that-be just might be open to ideas from smaller and international firms (what a concept!). Philadelphia keeps paving paradise and putting up parking lots. Plans for a new exit loggia for the Uffizi Gallery in Florence sparks international debate. RIBA (UK) and GSA (US) put out a call for entries. Moscow, thought to be running out of space, sees at least 70 million square meters available. The UN tells the UIA to link sustainability to affordability…and much more.
