Today's News - January 12, 2004

Editor's note: We're broadening our horizons (and brushing up our Italian) with a quick trip to Torino. The newsletter will return Friday, January 16th. Ciao!

ArcSpace visits a "friendly alien" in Austria (and, starting today, will post weekly updates). -- Collaboration to have WTC memorial design ready for its close-up this Wednesday. -- Bending San Francisco's height limits could be a boon or bust. -- Urban lessons in creative solutions for small infill projects in Portland. -- Milwaukee (as elsewhere) grapples with old and new. -- Urban planning done right a win for economy and aesthetics. -- Kennedy Center planning hits a few sour notes. -- Pier Wisconsin has an architect (again and finally). -- A salute to the "the radical Herzog and De Meuron." -- It's a Toronto kind of day: a who's who of starchitects doing what for the city (Gehry design to be unveiled on the 28th); and an airport the pharaohs would love. -- Moneo does Spain proud in Washington, DC. -- Miami Modern coming into its own. -- Boston and Texas firms put on the map with awards. -- A peek into the (not so) glamorous world of architectural competition advisers.
