Today’s News - Friday, December 5, 2008

•   Murcutt selected for 2009 AIA Gold Medal.

•   Farrelly on why the pick has "raised a few eyebrows."

•   Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen snags 2009 AIA Architecture Firm Award (no raised eyebrows here).

•   Rybczynski on Rudolph's resurrection: "a reminder of the important role that fashion plays in the fortunes of architects."

•   Hawthorne on Ehrlich's ASU school of journalism: it "doesn't rise to the level of great architecture," but it is "a near-perfect piece of architectural symbolism: a happily cobbled-together, chewing-gum-and-bailing-wire building."

•   HOK's Dali Museum to break ground next week on St. Petersburg, FL's waterfront (despite gloomy economy).

•   Meier pays tribute to Utzon: he was "an architect's architect."

•   Lots of weekend diversions: "Flip a Strip: New Ideas for Old Strip Malls" on view in Scottsdale (and an eyeful here).

•   Glancey is intrigued by "Japan Car: Designs for a Crowded Globe" (designed by Ban, no less) at London's Science Museum.

•   The "tension between art and history" of a crumbling South Bronx in the early 1980s on view at the Museum of the City of New York.

•   A "Blade Runner Barbie" doll house for Calvin Klein on Madison Ave.

•   Page turners: Kennicott on "Le Corbusier: A Life": shows "he was utterly obnoxious," but fails to examine "the man's importance or his legacy."

•   Heathcote's holiday gift picks, from "expensive, space-devouring, gorgeous" to "unusual and affecting."

•   A Metropolis round-up of new and notable (and one very expensive!) books.

•   "The American Skyscraper" is a big book project.

•   Brussat gives two thumbs-up to "Roots of Home: Our Journey to a New Old House": it raises "hope for real change - a return to the primacy of a timeless architecture."

•   How could we resist: Guest DJ Thom Mayne spins some tunes (great Q&A, too).
