Today’s News - Wednesday, September 10, 2008

•   Huxtable takes on what's gone on - and is going on - at Ground Zero: the "greatest planning fiasco in the history of the world" (where's Ed Logue when we really need him?).

•   Meanwhile, first look at (final?) plans for WTC museum pavilion.

•   In Prague, the head of National Library sacked over 'Blob' dispute (and project's chances looking dimmer).

•   Rybczynski muses on why architects never retire (part of Slate's "Geezer" issue).

•   Transition Town movement gaining ground internationally.

•   The battle for tuition dollars: schools are "plowing big money into new, iconic facilities."

•   Exhibit A: first review of Gehry's Lewis Library at Princeton (mostly positive - the back story is a pip).

•   King kicks back with Rebar on their way to Venice and Park(ing) Day.

•   A stroll around the Biennale fair grounds with busy bees building everywhere (fun pix).
