Today’s News - Monday, April 13, 2009

•   ArcSpace brings us Madrid's Herreros Arquitectos' competition-winning design for the Munch Museum in Oslo.

•   Zumthor wins the Pritzker! Hawthorne: "the choice seems to buck the idea that architects...ought to be engaged in lifting neighborhoods out of poverty and saving the planet to boot" (with Sinclair/Anderton debate thrown in).

•   Kamin's Q&A runs the gamut from winning the prize to the essence of architecture and hope for young architects.

•   Lifson: "well done" - and his own Q&A with the master.

•   Russell: "The jury took the temperature of the times and concluded that this was not the year to focus on showy bravura."

•   Pogrebin: "Winning the Pritzker is a kind of vindication"; and everything else you might want to know directly from the Hyatt Foundation.

•   Could Kaplicky's library actually find a home - near Prague's airport? (politics involved, of course.)

•   CF Møller dumped from Maritime Museum project (shades of 3XN in Liverpool?).

•   When construction budgets are cut, does architecture suffer? (hopefully, no.)

•   A tour through Doha's "unrelenting newness" proves that "history is not always the key to a city's charms."

•   Rochon cheers new library architecture in Toronto: "In small, thrilling ways, the city's public libraries have become impressive agents of change."

•   Dyckhoff cheers - and jeers - St. Pancras station: "a very British mess: creates a romantic mood...but there are some glaring crudities in its modernized look."

•   More on Ft. Worth's new Jacobs/Janney parking garage, where you can "leave your car safe in sounds" (and kids love the elevators).

•   Never mind the green necklace of NYC's waterfront - Jersey City has big plans of its own (the recession might even help).

•   Moore has high hopes that London can reclaim the Thames to "again become the heart - and the pride - of the capital."

•   Gellner offers a very thoughtful take on architects' love/hate relationship with CAD: can they become too "constrained by its steely precision"?
