Today’s News - Monday, March 16, 2009

•   ArcSpace brings us OMA in Taipei, and Vuga in Slovenia.

•   We offer our own take on the happy ending for Venturi Scott Brown's little beach house that could (with links to other reports: Saffron x 2 - from the beginning to the end of its journey).

•   Ouroussoff on a Stockholm competition that has "done us a major public service" offering "a snapshot of contemporary urban planning ideas" (Novel: "breathtaking"; Foster: "head-scratching"; BIG: "impetuous").

•   What of NYC's grand plans now we're in a recession: the administration "has no intention of scaling back its Moses-like ambitions."

•   More on "Grand Paris" plans (this one includes links to images by all architects involved).

•   Wood takes on his "fifth, biggest and most challenging 'romantic interlude'": transforming another old neighborhood in a Chinese city into a thriving urban center.

•   More details re: L.A. Civic Center Park, "envisioned as a connector between government and cultural institutions."

•   Starchitects feel the pinch as the boom turns to bust in Spain: "Barcelona's glory fades as city of pioneering designs."

•   Litt sheds more light on Cleveland's debate re: new medical mart and convention center proposals (straightening the riverbank perhaps not such a good idea after all).

•   Finland picks design for a new embassy building in Tokyo (though economics may put the project "on hold for a bit").

•   Hawthorne gives (mostly) thumbs-up to Dodgers' Camelback Ranch training camp: "an aesthetic attitude on display that stops well short of extravagance" and a "winningly low-key feel" - despite the big price tag.

•   Lewis on the brouhaha re: Apple store in Georgetown: "too much ado" about the design.

•   Campbell profiles a young Boston architect shifting to the global stage.
