Today's News - August 23, 2002

From Australia, there is a very interesting look at why there are not more women in architecture - or at least not more with recognizable names. As we near the first anniversary of 9/11, the editorials are coming fast and furiously - we could fill the daily newsletter with them, but bring you the most thoughtful. The Pentagon Memorial competition draws to its deadline. Builders and planners at odds? Nothing new - until the courts step in. An architect is awarded for his contribution to the built environment as well as his community participation. The wandering Skyscraper Museum will soon set down roots. One of London's largest regeneration plans takes another step forward. Design/build is the ticket for a new hospital in Alaska, though the method is questioned. The old Hollywood Bowl seems doomed. Architecture for Humanity's founder is lauded in his hometown paper. NASDAQ's numbers may not be great these days, but they'll certainly be putting on a show. The much-maligned Scottish Parliament building may end up a major tourist attraction.
