Today's News - Thursday, July 3, 2008

EDITOR'S NOTE: Tomorrow we'll be celebrating the 4th of July with family and friends...we'll be back Monday, July 7.
-- A stellar shortlist going for the "soul of Seoul" (and getting a pretty penny to do so).
-- For Gardner, new Stern on East 86th St. brings pre-war elegance to "one of the more dispiriting stretches of Manhattan" - a bit like "Lady Astor among a bevy of scullery maids."
-- Foster takes on the Rimini waterfront.
-- H&deM takes on cricket. -- Rios Clementi Hale transforms a strip mall into their own "little bit of an odd office."
-- In Wales, a new visitors center on Snowden mountain to be eco-friendly - sort of.
-- Princeton wins big donation for new energy and environment research center.
-- Simon Jenkins to chair U.K.'s National Trust; Stonehenge will be on his plate of contentious issues.
-- Weekend diversions: Viñoly's Cleveland Museum of Art ready for its close-up, and Litt likes what he sees.
-- NYC's P.S.1 urban farm by WORK opens for the summer (veggies for sale).
-- Rybczynski and McGuigan on Bucky at the Whitney: "something of a flimflammer" and even a bit "nutty," but inspiring nonetheless.
-- Lots from London: Glancey is quite amusing in a video where he explores "whether the capital's waterlogged past holds the key to its future."
-- Londoners explore Vancouverism: it may be a model for the future city, but its "progressive planning is not well served by its often dull, cookie-cutter towers of glass."
-- We couldn't resist: the sound of jelly wobbling will be the soundtrack for tomorrow's "bizarre architectural jelly banquet" in London; and a video of sonic architecture in Lower Manhattan.
-- Page turners: Heathcote finds "Architectural Voices: Listening to Old Buildings" an "architecture book of rare depth and a delight." -- "Exit-Architecture - Design between War and Peace" examines how paranoia, as a cultural force, shapes architecture. -- Brussat says Kunstler's fiction "World Made by Hand" could "be the New Urbanism on steroids."
