Today's News - September 22, 2003

A week away, and there's a lot of catching up to do:

ArcSpace takes us to Maggie's Centre, a Phoenix house, and a Schindler exhibition. -- Revised plans for Ground Zero: slide shows, audio tours, and judgments deferred. -- Mid East developers urged to go green. -- Landscaping takes on lifesaving. -- Plans for a sustainable community carved out of a derelict quarry in the U.K. -- A "civilised and well-detailed" office block in London looks good from a distance. -- A tale of two embassies in Ottawa. -- Building ballparks can build communities. -- Chicago's "bulbous" stadium may not do the same. -- Meier's Modernism doesn't quite hit the mark in Rome. -- Demolishing and reconstructing landmarks: first in Moscow, now in Manhattan…do we see a trend here? -- Oregon architect poised to join the starchitect roster. -- Another rising star gives up his "desert-rat life" (and gets a haircut). -- Gehry hears Maggie's voice.
