Today's News - September 6, 2002

Today, we start with our latest edition of WhoWhatWhen - a brief round up of industry news. -- A new museum planned for Washington, DC is looking for an architect. -- Texas has selected three finalists for a state 9/11 memorial that includes beams from the WTC. -- A school budget watchdog calls for simple school designs and architects "to be kept under control" (watch out for those curved glass-block walls and soaring porticos - and maybe there's some of that pea-green paint left over from the 60's in the basement). -- New guidelines for urban redevelopment in the UK are issued. -- An Art Deco treasure in Toronto is restored. -- Diller + Scofidio's ICA museum in Boston continues to get praise. -- Denver is dealing with the dilemma of how to preserve a Lawrence Halprin park while making it user-friendly - and safe (the same problem cropped up in a Seattle story a week or so ago). -- A Korean planner heads for Algeria. -- Gehry heads to bigger digs. -- An urban researcher says, "Gays are the vanguard of urban renewal"…and much more.
