Today's News - Wednesday, June 18, 2008

-- Sad news day (to us, anyway): It looks like Rudolph's Riverview High is destined to be paved over for parking (a most pathetic fate).
-- A grumpy news day: Architects pitted against architects re: Piano's plan for Corbu's Rochamp chapel ("I'm not new to this sort of battle," he says).
-- Russell has some good things to say (and a few disappointments) re: Piano's Whitney project on the High Line.
-- Tom Wolfe is displeased with Foster's revised plan for Parke-Bernet addition (why are we not surprised?).
-- Dyckhoff can't say enough about Beijing's Bird's Nest, but the rest of the Beijing Olympics buildings are a total "flop."
