Today's News - May 22, 2006

ArcSpace brings us two hot L.A. projects. -- A Frenchman in Spain takes International High-Rise Prize (commendations not too shabby either). -- NYT Sunday Magazine totally devoted to architecture (plan to spend some time with this one!). -- Farrelly not just a bit suspicious of two new books extolling the virtues of suburbanism. -- Thumbs-up and thumbs-down on New Urbanist communities (visiting local "villages" is a "great deal less expensive that visiting movie studios in Los Angeles" is one way to look at them). -- Does "quirky" architecture make a town tacky or welcoming? -- Big plans for U.K.'s Cowgate (make that the much more hip "SoCo"). -- Some out-of-the-box thinking for a green Olympics could give Chicago the edge. -- Foster wins big with school contracts - but not everyone is convinced it's the right way to go. -- A piece of "fleshy, juicy fruit" of a new store for Apple is drawing the crowds. -- Vision for Orange County Great Park is complex with a simple intention. -- Montréal is first city in North America to be designated part of UNESCO's Creative Cities Network. -- Some "fantastically futuristic hotel designs" await visitors to the World Cup in Germany. -- Demand for Ando everywhere. -- Barbican exhibit of futuristic cities imagined between 1956-2006, but truly radical visions are found in films. -- Fuller/Noguchi show "explores their rapport." -- Three winners in AIA/HUD Housing and Design Awards. -- Once we couldn't resist: a report on Libeskind's 60th birthday bash (be sure to check out NYT Mag to find out why he wears those glasses). -- EDITOR'S NOTE: We are on the road, and hoping to have Internet access for a couple more days. If not, we'll be back Tuesday, May 30.
