Today's News - Monday, February 11, 2008

ArcSpace brings us Mayer H. in Denmark and Moss Los Angeles. -- Of carbon-hungry suburbs longing to be green. -- Kuwait's "City of Silk" for 700,000 centered on 250+ story tower (oh - and carbon-neutral, they say - watch for news of similar project/same architect coming to Dubai). -- With more than a touch of pessimism, Hawthorne takes on Foster's Crystal Island and Nouvel's "green blade" in L.A. -- An asymmetrical skyscraper for Seattle designed not to overpower its "venerable neighbors" (does it look a bit like another recently announced tower, we wonder). -- Kamin applauds Driehaus Awards for Community Design: winner is "a first-rate example of architecture's social promise." -- Winners lauded in competition to refurbish Sheffield, U.K.'s vacant, council houses. -- Glancey gets inside Beijing's Bird's Nest: the "looping, swooping, stunning stadium" (thumbs-up for aquatic center, too - some great pix!). -- Campbell has high hopes that Stern's adventure at Harvard will be a "rich, solid, convincing work of architecture" and not "a shallow stage-set." -- Davidson finds Viñoly's Bronx Hall of Justice "a compassionate Panopticon." -- We couldn't resist a graceful "white whale" of a luxury airship hotel (eco-friendly, too). -- NZIA president: "Let's build beautifully" -- things our "grandchildren will be proud - not ashamed - to inherit." -- Calls for entries: IDA08: Land & Sea Competition: Designs that Decrease Man's Carbon Footprint; and VM+SD Retail Renovation Competition. -- Winners all: Europan 9 (all 63); and Good Design Awards (all 400). ----- EDITOR'S NOTE: We just updated the ANN calendar with a number of new competition deadlines and international conferences.
