Today's News - February 25, 2003

Talent lost in an avalanche. -- Two days and counting to Ground Zero design winner…there's a lot of sniping and apologizing and backtracking going on. -- LA Times balances yesterday's in-depth personality profile of the Libeskinds with Viñoly today (and not much time to include Schwartz, Smith, and Ban). -- Lincoln Center picks a team for its landscaping at least (but money is not in the coffers yet). -- Coffers for project in Dubai are brimming. -- Consensus for stadium design yields architectural identity crisis. -- A tower builder honored in Baltimore. -- Seattle courthouse has a heart of steel. -- An architectural icon or a "tube worm" in the works for Cooper Union. -- AIA/Dallas sponsors heard-hat tour with Legorreta. -- An architectural exercise in building and tearing down bridges (we're not talking politics).
