Today’s News - Monday, October 19, 2009

•   ArcSpace brings us eyefuls of Libeskind's ROM Crystal, and house by Baeza in Garrison, New York.

•   A Stirling kind of day (and sure to be many more pundits pundit-ing in the days ahead): the winner is Rogers Stirk Harbour's Maggie's Centre London.

•   Merrick mourns that the "shortlists have become decent" rather than "genuinely exploratory. Where is the architectural joy - or risk?" (time for younger jurors, perhaps?)

•   Liverpool One might not have won, but "it's arguably won a more important prize" - it "has more or less survived the recession."

•   Pearman's amusing take on the awards event itself.

•   To the video: Rogers re: Maggie's Centre "and the struggle between tradition and modernity in British architecture."

•   Oh - lest we forget the Chelsea Barracks sage: RSHP wants to be paid.

•   Lewis gives Chicago a "gold medal for design": the city "is already uniquely "Olympian" thanks to its soaring urban architecture and architectural legacy."

•   Big plans floated to create more docks all along the Hudson River.

•   Saffron cheers Philadelphia's plans to perk up its artful but all too car-centric parkway for pedestrians (she gives the Barnes plan an "A" for aesthetics, but an "F" in urbanism).

•   A visit to a remote village in Colombia that is a "four-decade experiment to alter civilization's dependence on finite fossil fuels and industrial agriculture."

•   In the U.K., new affordable housing is deemed "dangerous at night": now it's up to architects to change that.

•   Bing Thom talks urbanism with a light touch.

•   Cranbrook's ambitious plans to expand.

•   HOK x 2: Big plans for 432-acre former Sun Microsystems site: a new corporate campus that will be "quiet and astonishing" (and oh so green); and on the team for new Sacramento courthouse.

•   Call for entries: 2010 Ceramic Tiles of Italy Design Competition.

•   Two we couldn't resist: Starck bares his soul (sort of); and an eyeful of Europe's first rotating hotel (we'll believe it when we see it).
