Today’s News - Thursday, July 2, 2009

EDITOR'S NOTE: We're taking a short (hopefully not-too-soggy) 4th of July break...we'll be back Monday, July 6.

•   Huxtable hails Lincoln Center re-do: "What was exclusive, forbidding and opaque will become inclusive, inviting and open."

•   Kozinn has a very different take, starting with Tully Hall (he "hates" it) to wondering whether making "open-to-all outdoor space into the exclusive preserve of its restaurant patrons will actually make the center more open and street friendly."

•   Hadid's "light-as-egg-white, oddly comforting" Bach salon for Manchester International Festival "could point the way forward to more imaginative ways of experiencing classical music," yet it "has a lot to prove."

•   An eyeful of 14 new designs for Pitt's "Make It Right" project in New Orleans.

•   Architect Cruz and artist Reyes may "put ethics above architecture" - but "however valuable the ground work was, an architectural result was lacking."

•   King on Fisher giving up on Presidio museum plan; the big question: will the collection stay in San Francisco or go elsewhere?

•   Brussat calls it re: Chelsea Barracks brouhaha: "Game, set, match: Prince Charles," despite Rogers' "thundering petulance" that was "a joy to behold."

•   Moore on possibility of a new "corona" for Westminster Abbey: "It ain't broke...so don't fix it."

•   SOM wins big in Saudi Arabia.

•   Javits Convention Center makeover "will not only repair the building but revolutionize it."

•   Denver airport redesign could put the Great Hall off-limits to the non-traveling public, and not all are pleased (even though Calatrava will have a hand in it).

•   An eyeful of some of the architecturally striking projects revamping tourist highways across Norway.

•   Could the future of suburbia include organic farms?

•   An architecture student's take in the effects of the economic crisis in the construction industry: it "leaves much of the working class and in particular young people with a bleak future."

•   Weekend diversions: "Remembering Jan Kaplicky - Architect of the Future" at London's Design Museum.

•   Two amusing takes (and lots of pix) of MOS's "afterparty" at P.S.1: "Snuffleupagus Lives!" and a "weird furry factory of sorts."

•   The premise of Till's tome "Architecture Depends" is "so inchoate and oblique that it's easy to forget, for pages at a time, what the original question was."

•   We couldn't resist: lost of pix and videos of Sears Tower's new Ledge ("it takes a certain trust in unseen architects, engineers and construction workers to take that first step overlooking perdition"); and Hoberman's "insane" U2 360 World Tour stage.
