Today's News - January 4, 2007

AIA/COTE's Top Ten Green Projects program is a portrait of evolution in the field (and the deadline for '07 submissions is extended). -- The U.K. follows U.S. in call to make new buildings more fitness-friendly (and make us all "eco-slobs"). -- Year-end reviews: Campbell's Top 10 list for 2006. -- Preservation's woes and wonders. -- Tall is in vogue (and not just in San Francisco). -- Some thumbs-up, some thumbs-down for Beijing's CCTV tower. -- San Francisco's Octavia Boulevard merits APA's "achievement award for hard-won victories." -- Not all are enthralled with Edinburgh's new city hall. -- A look at "the biggest, best, and most impressive places to bask in books." -- Downsizing the super-sized: "the big house will go when exasperation trumps ego." -- California leading the way in solar power (even owners of super-sized houses are saving big bucks). -- Bummed out in Miami Beach: quirky lifeguard stands replaced by bureaucrat-built structures are "an architectural and artistic embarrassment" (even though great designs were in the drawer - slide show says it all). -- Chicagoans envision the city of the future. -- Ill-informed writers put a bad spin on modern design. -- RIBA's new president has a social agenda (he doesn't mean parties). -- So does UCLA's new dean of architecture. -- An Indian architect who turns junk into high design. -- Droog show will vigorously shake concpets of contemporary design. -- A book looks at Times Square: "the 'terrible' gift of 'too much'." -- One we couldn't resist: an elevator to the underworld in the Swiss Alps. -- One we missed: in November, Oscar Niemeyer married his secretary - a month before his 99th birthday (way to go, Oscar!).
