Today's News - September 2, 2005

EDITOR'S NOTE: ArchNewsNow will not be laboring on Labor Day, Monday, September 5 (U.S.); we'll be back Tuesday, September 6. ----- New Orleans: first reports from cultural institutions: Danzler House, just remodeled to house a Mardi Gras museum, destroyed; zoos o.k. for the most part; an empty space where the Gulfport aquarium used to be. -- Several takes on what it will take to recover (including Libeskind). -- The "docility" of Cameroon architects (and lack of schools) "exerts a tremendous adverse socio-economic effect on the population." -- Another grand plan for Dublin's docklands. -- Rhode Island brownfields transformed for upscale living. -- A Vermont highway rest stop rebuilt with greenhouse and flushes "green" (we wish they'd name the architect!). -- A new museum in Leipzig opts for non-"starchitect" and ends up with "one of Europe's finest new galleries." -- A black-owned firm steps up to the plate for Washington, DC's new stadium with its "intimate knowledge of the city.' -- RMJM's payroll just got smaller (apparently it wasn't amicable, either). -- Sometimes it takes time for "bad boys of architecture" to rise to greatness. -- Modernist homes "once abhorred for their brutalist austerity" now considered collector's items (unless it's a Bunshaft). -- Weekend diversions: a photographic look at New York then and now. -- A new book looks at Tel Aviv's architecture, city politics, and the role of the architects.
