Today's News - April 14, 2004

Editor's note: ANN is hitting the road today. Depending on what technology we find along the way, there may -- or may not -- be newsletters posted Thursday-Monday.
News: The most livable places (how does 200 inches of snow per year sound?). -- Full team is in place for WTC memorial -- and what can be learned from Berlin's Jewish Museum. -- Two more takes on Lincoln Center re-do. -- A white elephant gets a new lease on life. -- A Sydney fish market with no smell…sounds a bit fishy to some. -- Client "mindset" in a city in India that doesn't rely on architects and engineers: "this kind of practice is quite alarming" (one would think so, anyway). -- Questions for a city planner. -- Profiles of future planners. -- "LA's Early Moderns" reviewed. -- University open house puts spotlight on architecture and environment.
