Today's News - Wednesday, August 8, 2007

EDITOR'S NOTE: Early morning travel means we won't be posting newsletter tomorrow, but we'll be back Friday, August 10. ----- Heathcote on high-rises: "Spires, slabs and spikes are the new centrepieces for cities...Our future is firmly amongst the clouds." -- As L.A. buys into NY-style density, some worry about affordable housing, traffic, and losing the city's "low-rise, suburban quality." -- Is Russia's building boom creating the "newest ancient heritage in the world"? -- For King, San Francisco is an adventurous city that calls for adventurous architecture rather than "slavish imitation and skin-deep pastiche." -- Combining investment and philanthropy, a Danish developer is creating architectural landmarks (though not all are impressed). -- It's official (or will be later today): a green Cloud by Alsop coming to Toronto: "My new building will be a jolly sister to the OCAD building." -- San Francisco's next new museum (hopefully). -- Rybczynski on the prefab fad: it's "more about industrial chic than affordability." -- Baltimore to decide if theater is a prize example of modernist architecture or a "poached egg on toast." -- Britain's first truly Jewish synagogue gets Grade-1 listing. -- An Xbox 360 for every architect: game engines as the newest tool (if they can get over the word "game").
