Today's News - May 30, 2003

Two very different headlines (but basically the same story) on Libeskind role at Ground Zero. -- Lobbying the 9/11 memorial jury. -- Bawa remembered. -- Architectural interns have a lot to say (and they're worth listening to). -- The public wins out (sometimes) in city planning wars. -- Planning for sustainable growth for 16 million. -- Hadid's museum a "siren's song" for art. -- Detroit park seen as an important part of downtown future. -- Indian VIP's build for themselves on public land. -- A metalworking shop bends the future of architecture. Weekend diversions: Frank Lloyd Wright house tours in Madison and books to take to the beach.
