Today’s News - Friday, July 24, 2009

•   Angotti on the faltering WTC plans and why it might be time to go back to the drawing board: "Maybe the critics were right in the first place."

•   A serious look at why street design matters, and some of the cities that are taking it seriously.

•   Hot on the heels of two Stirling nods, Rogers takes another hit: his British Museum extension plan bites the dust ("official reasons for the refusal remain unclear").

•   Prague's "Blob"/"Octopus"/"Eye": the "saga of the chosen library design refuses to die."

•   Gorlin has "great hope for modern architecture" in the Bronx: "A masterpiece is still awaited, but at least there are many contenders."

•   Bernstein on the impending demise of Yamasaki's Century Plaza Hotel in L.A.: not everyone thinks it's worth saving.

•   Something amazing is rising from the wildfire ashes at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

•   A long shortlist for BD's Architect of the Year Awards 2009.

•   Weekend diversions: Plan to spend some time at "Modell Bauhaus" in Berlin - "the world's biggest Bauhaus retrospective" (great slide show!).

•   Hawthorne cheers the "architecture of gumption" presented in "Mix" in La Jolla: these "architects are making measurable headway against problems that desperately need solving."

•   Campbell takes on the Wright and the High Line in one fell swoop (one miss, one hit).

•   Ivy waxes poetic about the lost art of hand drawing as he wanders the Wright show: the "sheets of handwork remind us what we have lost in our transition to the electronic"; want more: an architecture fantasy camp for Frank Lloyd Wright fans.

•   The tantalizing "Mannahatta/Manhattan" at the Museum of the City of New York challenges the viewer to see the contemporary city as "a place shaped by the relationship between nature and people."

•   The new documentary "Snakebit" about Rural Studio and Samuel "Sambo" Mockbee "seems unexpectedly moving, even for architecture buffs."

•   "A Paradise Built in Hell" finds the upside of natural or national disasters.

•   Eileen Gray finally gets her due in "the most in-depth look at the designer to date."

•   We couldn't resist: an amazing eyeful of MOS's "afterparty" at P.S. 1 in Wade Zimmerman's "brilliant pictures of this hairy beast"; and winners of Maserati/Architectural Digest's garage design competition (worth looking at all the entries - vroom vroom!).
