Today's News - October 4, 2002

Gleaned from reports today: There are six finalists for the Pentagon Memorial, but they won't be announced until October 11; the big upset: none of the proposals include any reference to WTC or Pennsylvania victims. -- An exhibition puts center stage the usually invisible elements of urban (and suburban) infrastructure. -- Design-cum-security plans are approved that will make Washington, DC look less "like Bosnia." -- The Eden Project gets bigger. -- A new monument for London (and not all are pleased…so what else is new?). -- Detroit students consider remaking communities. -- A thoughtful interview with Zaha Hadid. -- A plea to architects in Ghana: "the more architects we produce, the worse our housing situation gets." -- A renaissance for Tyre may endanger some of its historic areas. -- Smart furniture to keep us healthy. -- Fighting crime by design in Australia. -- London will get its own glass bridge…and much more.
