Today's News - October 1, 2002

Praise from Muschamp for the shortlisted teams (except for a slap at SOM). -- Goldberger doesn't just slap - he trounces Manhattan's new Westin Hotel saying (among other things) "it makes Times Square vulgar in a whole new way." -- An exciting shortlist for Lincoln Center. -- A suburban development that isn't about sprawl. -- A master plan for Liverpool is finally approved. -- A museum for the environment is raising building funds. -- A Norwegian firm won a design competition for a new development in Edinburgh's historic Haymarket, but didn't win the job (and there's not much praise for what is planned). -- On a happier note, the city can boast the Best Building in Scotland. -- Chicago's newest high-rise gets high marks. -- The U.N. will search globally for its billion-dollar makeover and new addition. -- The Jedi are in trouble with Trinity…and much more.
