Today's News - Friday, July 25, 2008

-- An excellent in-depth look at the latest trend (or new hybrid?): designer cities by starchitects.
-- Three towers in the running to rise over NYC's bus terminal (there go the river views from NYT tower).
-- Calatrava agrees to clip Ground Zero transit hub wings.
-- Style wars heat up: Adam and Terry vs. Modernists.
-- Kaplicky's Prague library: is it on or off - hard to tell (either way, he'll make out just fine).
-- Jerusalem's first green apartment tower (even the wild flowers will be preserve red).
-- A video sneak-peek of Tschumi's Acropolis Museum.
-- RIBA elects first woman president.
-- Worldwide Cost of Living survey: Moscow most costly, London #3, NYC #22 (hard to believe).
-- Weekend diversions: Gardner finds MoMA's "Dreamland" full of architectural experiments, some visions of chaos and danger.
-- In Sydney: how Modernism reshaped Australia.
-- In Prague, bright spots of modernity in a sea of history.
-- In London, celebrating the joy of crossing, connecting places, and engineering.
-- A 50th anniversary celebration for Frank Lloyd Wright's gas station in Duluth.
-- Page turners: "Modernism in China" offers insight into the work of both foreign and Chinese architects not given much ink in the west.
-- "Le Corbusier Le Grand" is certainly weighty (but not all in a good way).
-- Heathcote finds "Hungry City" an "enthralling history of consumption," but "misses a few tricks." -- Stephens reviews Kunstler's novel about "apocalyptic utopianism" (too bad it's a bit "dull" and perhaps "too little too late").
-- "Traffic" is "highly readable" (but bad timing?).
-- We couldn't resist: Google Maps add walking directions - with bad neighborhood cautions (we tooled around…it's very cool!). -- As if we need another reason to go to Paris: even more Paris Plages (sandy beaches) this summer.
