Today's News - Wednesday, January 2, 2008

Happy New Year! We're back - with a lot of catching up to do! ----- A sad note to start: Sudjic's eloquent tribute to Sottsass, who left us New Year's Eve. -- Huxtable on Hudson Yards proposals: how could teams with so much star power "come up with something so awesomely bad" (ouch!). -- Heathcote and Woodman are awed - and dismayed - by the "crushing march of the new" in China. -- Now they've seen the inside, some critics start to soften towards Beijing's National Center for the Performing Arts. -- "Devilish definitions" are blurring the lines between urban and suburban. -- Hume sees Toronto's waterfront plan as a "magnet and, hopefully, model" for the city's future. -- Foster plans Crystal Island, the world's biggest building for Moscow (a.k.a. the "Christmas tree"?). -- Speer, Jr.: one of the world's busiest architects (but we hardly ever hear about). -- When it comes to mosque design, Hawthorne sees architects as "caught in a widening divide," both stylistically and politically. -- Smaller cities using big names for new museums to make their mark; Roanoke, for one (not all are pleased). -- It's tradition: reviews of the year, and just about everyone is chiming in: Glancey takes on the decade; Ouroussoff on NYC's "year of building furiously"; Hume on Toronto's lessening fear of taking chances; Kamin on Chicago's "year full of fabulous form and function"; Campbell; Cheek (there's sure to be more); and Hawthorne's list of "faces to watch."
