Today's News - September 12, 2006

(How about a touch of Art Deco or - gasp - PoMo?) -- 9/11 memorial under construction, but design debate continues. -- If it does get built, will it be "Baroque Modernism at the beginning of the 21st century?" -- King sees American skyscrapers "entering a bold, imaginative era." -- The Persian Gulf needs to learn lessons from China if it's not to end up as a suburban Legoland. -- A Dutch experiment in Montreal offers lessons for L.A. -- Hawthorne finds Orange County's new concert hall "a plush, richly appointed piece of architecture that sags under the weight of its eagerness to impress." -- Boston's ICA "has become an unlikely trailblazer" on the city's waterfront. -- Herzog on the link between sex, cooking, and architecture. -- Ouroussoff sees a promising trend in architects taking on urbanism. -- Toronto seeks new street furniture proposals. -- A documentary on the making of the Gherkin is a "tall tale of towering egos" (and entertaining). -- FYI: Witold Rybczynski awarded the National Building Museum's 8th Vincent J. Scully Prize. - Frei Otto takes home $131,000 Praemium Imperiale (awarded in fields not covered by the Nobel Prizes) for lifetime achievement in architecture.
