Today's News - September 8, 2003

We lose a design maven and benefactress. -- ArcSpace brings us lots of news from Denmark (much of it from Holmen, Copenhagen's emerging waterfront). -- Nearing the second anniversary of 9/11, it's inevitable news, reviews, and interviews will proliferate. -- Building revolutionary art schools in Havana. -- Student competition offers architecture for the future in "overgrown and overcrowded" Dhaka where there is "a scarcity of conscious workers dealing with architecture." -- Global warming: not a good forecast for U.K. office buildings. -- A "grim" tower in London's future? -- St. Louis museum takes a chance on a young architect, and it looks like they have a winner. -- A first-class look for a secondhand store. -- Reviving a Baltimore treasure revives a neighborhood. -- Cutting-edge school design can give students an academic edge. -- Harvard housing complex causes apoplexy. -- Seattle City Hall disappoints. -- Gehry clashes with critic (and so articulately).
