Today's News - November 18, 2002

This week at ArcSpace: High-tech in a hangar Copenhagen, and a conference center glows on Tokyo's skyline. -- Is New York spreading itself too thin? -- Pelli listens in on Garvin's talk at Yale: "He has a very rare combination of a fresh mind and great optimism" (scroll down page to reach article). -- Kid-friendly hospitals. -- Chicago manufacturers are not happy with landscaping rules. -- Developer praised "for having the courage to build atop a landfill, something rarely attempted anywhere," but design leaves a lot to be desired. -- Frank Lloyd Wright inspires insight into what's lacking in corporate culture. -- Adaptive re-use of a Chicago landmark wins award, but Philadelphia (as elsewhere) grapples with a growing architectural movement that says a building doesn't have to be old to be historic, and Italy pleads for help to save its historic villas. -- Nine circles make a perfect neighborhood (and win a patent). -- Affordable housing doesn't have to be ugly to be inexpensive. -- A "green" headquarters exceeds expectations in Maryland. -- Studies begin in Australia to create better workplaces. -- High praise for a city pool in Sydney. -- Exhibition reviews…and more.
