New York magazine compiles its own stable of "starchitects" for Ground Zero (and some readers' submissions aren't bad, either). -- A new director for the Museum of the City of New York promises a downtown home (its intended location, the Tweed Courthouse after an $89 million restoration, is given over to the Board of Education - will they end up putting back all the acoustic tile ceilings and cubicles?). -- Madrid and Sydney have high-rises on their horizons. -- A new research team in Japan is designed to raise the level of domestic museums to European levels. -- Elizabeth Farrelly has her say in two articles about fat architecture and (dare we say?) fat-headed architects. -- Los Angeles has lost one of its most visionary developers. -- A helpful synopsis of reviews of Moneo's LA cathedral. - There's money on Gehry doing for Panama what he did for Bilbao. -- Light pollution moves up in the ranks of urban ills. -- Foes of smart growth have a human face…and much more.
