Today's News - Tuesday, April 1, 2008

We're saddened by the passing of Ralph Rapson, who "preached the gospel of context." -- More nods for Nouvel (following yesterday's glut): Glancey on the "gentle giant of Paris": "It's about time his delicate genius got its due." -- Arch Record talks to the man of the hour. -- Nouvel buildings: "Impractical, sometimes. Over budget, occasionally. But never dull or ugly." -- A critical look at the flawed selection process re: Hudson Yards (with a swipe at Ouroussoff and arch critics in general). -- In New Orleans, big plans, but few signs of transformation. -- Ouroussoff warns that big plans for Greenwich Village could leave us with the "urban equivalent of a patient on meds: safe, numb, soulless." -- A "cautious song of celebration for the doomed Employment Exchange" in Manchester, U.K. -- Rawsthorn and Lowry take on cautionary tales of badly designed signage and digital billboards as an assault on the landscape. -- Hume on the evolution of glass and light in architecture. -- A most unusual church in Anchorage shaped to funnel light upon the faithful. -- Kamin has an amusing conversation with the "very sweet" Ada Louise (when she's not "taking aim at awful architecture"). -- Starck says design is dead and he wants to quit. -- Calls for entries: LONDON 2008 - Adaptable architecture gallery (registration opens today); and Lord & Taylor Everything's Coming Up Roses Contest. -- National Landscape Architecture Month begins today. -- It's also April 1st, so how could we not include our annual fave: PPS's Faking Places; and something we hope is a joke: Elephants to work on UK construction sites (no hard hats required).
