Today's News - March 23, 2007

New Taiwan performing arts center will have a Dutch accent (so says Romanian source, anyway). -- An "environmentally savvy" transformation of New Orleans tower (Schwartz finally wins WTC?!). -- Koolhaas's Singapore skyscraper touches the ground lightly (and pix to prove it). -- It looks like a yes vote for Gehry's King Alfred development in Hove (according to "unrivalled access to the decision-making process"). -- Tel Aviv's "most tempestuous city engineer" is practically contemptuous: "The fact that we are bringing superstar architects here who have no work at the moment does not turn Tel Aviv into a mini-Manhattan." (Libeskind and Meier with no work at the moment - that's news to us!). -- Liverpool's Aintree racetrack makeover sports "flamboyant grandstands" (that probably cost in value engineering a bland inside). -- Stern gets fit for Brown. -- Bernstein's Rudolph road trip (before any more disappear). -- Green roofs sprouting everywhere: the people and plants that make them happen. -- Offshoring still a buzzword (but for how long?). -- Smart Environments Awards deadline extended. -- Weekend diversions: Saffron visits Modernism and Moses: "...these shows effectively book-end a movement that imagined a better world but ended up giving us bad things in beautiful new ways." -- "Not satisfied with current architectural process," Russian museum shows he big, the bad, and the beautiful in utopian spires. -- "Building the Gherkin" documents how a skyscraper goes from "being reviled in theory to beloved in actuality." -- An overlooked architect who "deserves his place in the history books."
