Today's News - Wednesday, January 23, 2008

EDITOR'S NOTE: Our apologies for delay in today's news (techno-glitches while in road-warrior mode), but definitely worth the wait. ----- Pearman's take on the global efforts to build eco-cities (it's good and bad news). -- Hawthorne re: the "growing nostalgia in the West for the days when we too built with ambition and even abandon." -- An upcoming London symposium to explore lessons from the past for architects and planners shaping new cities. -- New "American gentry" bringing "bringing cash, culture - and controversy" to rural areas. -- Farrelly on what's wrong with misguided (and expensive) re-do of Sydney's Oxford Street: the "brilliantly funky" days are gone. -- London's Parliament Square may become clutter free, but is that a good thing? -- Ouroussoff the pessimist converts: his "faith is rekindled in architecture's future" by BMW's "cathedral for cars.' -- Miami heats up by Gehry concert hall breaking ground (we want to see the garage). -- Phyllis Lambert goes to the mat (once again) to save historic building from Quebec museum plans. -- Big plans for Matua Bay casino-hotel -- with promise to fit into a "pristine environment" (let's hope so, anyway). -- Author/editor Speaks named University of Kentucky College of Design. -- In their own words: Peter Cook, James Howard Kunstler, and Geoff Anderson. -- Prouvé's La Maison Tropicale takes up residence on the Thames. -- Heathcote heartily endorses the "one of the best artists you've never heard of" (a.k.a. Mrs. Koolhaas). -- We couldn't resist: Potty news from New Zealand and New York.
