Today’s News - Tuesday, September 29, 2009

•   An in-depth look at what could be the future of Detroit: it could be "the Arsenal of the Renewable Energy Future" that would "regenerate not just a city but our sense of who we are" (or not).

•   High hopes and big visions for Greenwich Street south of the WTC site, "an area shaken hard by ground zero construction and the recession."

•   Prince Charles draws ire (again); this time from hikers who claim Poundbury expansion plans "will turn it into an isolated 'ghetto' cut off from countryside."

•   Rochon revels in Toronto's new Royal Conservatory of Music: it's "sumptuous and daring" and "a piece of urban poetry."

•   King on the nebulous (for the moment) future of SFMOMA's new wing for the Fisher collection; and an exhibition that "reminds us that some things never go out of style - such as our knack for dubious hype."

•   USGBC and RTKL's new LEED Platinum spaces in a (not LEED) 1970s office building.

•   Glancey's musings on what Foster's lunar structures might look like.

•   The 2009 Toronto Urban Design Awards jury seemed to be just a bit grumpy: "The quality of the submissions suggests that there remains considerable room for improvement''; and the jurors' report: you can judge for yourself.

•   Lots to brush off frequent flyer miles for: 2009 Monterey Design Conference in California; Applied Brilliance conference in New York; and DOCOMOMO US Annual Tour Day expands to include Canada and Mexico.

•   We couldn't resist: London's Hyde Park gets its first new drinking fountain in 30 years: "it's big and very shiny" (and perhaps the last for awhile).
