Today’s News - Thursday, September 17, 2009

•   Menking takes on Ouroussoff's recent dissing of New York design talent: "using a discussion of the New York Five to argue that the city has closed itself off to innovative architecture is simply wrong-headed."

•   Goldberger chimes in on new Atlantic Yards arena design: "Maybe it's as good as Gehry's building...But then again, so what? The rest of Atlantic Yards still remains - too big, and too indifferent."

•   Woodman takes on Scottish architects bemoaning being overlooked in their homeland: it's their own fault (and Dunlop et al. respond).

•   Hawthorne's fall preview: "will we look back at this year as the time when architecture sputtered to a halt or merely paused to catch its breath?"

•   Glancey goes totally gaga for Calatrava's "glorious new station in Belgium&hellip a masterpiece of logistics, urban planning, design, construction, detailing - and chutzpah."

•   King gives two thumbs-ups to two very different Pfau Long projects: "What they share is a deceptively casual sense of restraint, using resources in ways that are sparing and right."

•   Appelbaum and NYC Parks Commissioner take an amusing stroll through "some of the most inspiring parks the city has started building on some formerly industrial or otherwise unlikely sites."

•   Lower Manhattan's newest hot-spot: an art park on loan from developers who won't be building on empty site any time soon.

•   Brussat finds grist for his mill in an online conversation with architects re: modern vs. traditional.

•   A university team develops a new computer algorithm that can reconstruct an entire city in about a day.

•   MIT Senseable City Lab launches project that tracks garbage that "will help give people a concrete sense of their impact on the environment."
