Today's News - Friday, December 21, 2007

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the final newsletter of the year (we'll be back Wednesday, January 2, 2008)...it seems fitting to wind up the year with (mostly) good news and reviews. ----- CABE comes up with big bucks - 'er pounds - to "inspire great local architecture" around the U.K. -- Pearman tracks Foster from 40 years ago to Beijing. -- A new Niemeyer for Spain; he needs 15 days to come up with a monument to soccer for Rio. -- Maeda takes on RISD presidential mantle. -- Juror offers insight into AR Emerging Architecture winners. -- British wit: BD's alternative architecture awards for 2007 (the God complex award, for example). -- Lacayo's Top 10 for '07 (well, he names 5 - and then some). -- Top designers pick their faves. -- Must-see/must-read: Heathcote on Prouvé' show: "If you've become bored of limited edition design masquerading as art then this is the show for you"; and best books of the year. -- An unusual tour of L.A. in the spirit of the "zany Englishman" Reyner Banham. -- Kamin picks: Joseph Rosa's curatorial skills challenge the "modernist creed: That ornament is a crime"; and a list of books worth reading or giving. -- Gardner's take on "Architecture or Techno-Utopia: Politics After Modernism." -- "Beyond Bawa" will hopefully boost the architect's posthumous profile. -- In the spirit of the season: the "twinkle factor ratings" of Santa's digs at malls around Toronto. -- Rating your turkey dinner's carbon footprint: "Christmas miserabilism has gone mainstream."

Here's to Happy, Happy Holidays and a joyful and prosperous New Year for all!!! See you next year...
