Today’s News - Monday, April 6, 2009

EDITOR'S NOTE: Early morning travel plans tomorrow...we'll be back on Wednesday.

•   ArcSpace brings us eyefuls of TEN Arquitectos' museum in Mexico City, and Foster's Beijing airport.

•   Kamin on Burnham Memorial competition: finalists named, but the "committee running the competition gets zero points for transparency" - we won't see designs until June to keep "competitors from borrowing each other's ideas as they tweak their work" (huh?!!?).

•   Prince Charles takes on Lord Rogers - again - and risks a political and diplomatic row over Chelsea Barracks.

•   Moore says Rogers design is not perfect but Prince's scheme is "Wren on steroids."

•   Will Gehry's Eisenhower memorial be a tribute to Eisenhower or a monument to the architect?

•   Calys on CAMP re-design: "Whether it is the elegant museum this collection deserves is still unclear from this conceptual design" (and expect the opposition to come out in full force).

•   Korean Air's $1 billion towering plans for the L.A. skyline - and pix to prove it (farewell aging Wilshire Grand).

•   A look at Stout's Art Gallery of Alberta.

•   Christopher Janney's hand in a Fort Worth parking garage may make valet parking irrelevant.

•   Rochon gives two thumbs-ups to a film director giving Toronto "the close-up it deserves."

•   A very generous gift will rename University of Arkansas School of Architecture for Fay Jones (great slide show).

•   Charlie Rose in a lively (and amusing) conversation with Ada Louise Huxtable.

•   Winners all: Building Awards 2009.

•   Calls for entries: a new National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo; and deadline extended for 12th Annual BusinessWeek/Architectural Record "Good Design Is Good Business" Awards.
