Today’s News - Tuesday, November 17, 2009

•   Everyone maxed out on Hadid's Maxxi: Glancey: it's "her best work yet" and "a brave project"; Dyckhoff: it's "delirious, magnificent, a sculpture to inhabit...the very definition of iconic"; Merrick: "stunning."

•   Not to be outdone, Woodman finds Caruso St John's Nottingham Contemporary "an extraordinary building"; and Long says getting the details right gives it "a sense of fineness and quality that is rare in this country."

•   Three L.A. cities vie for Eli Broad's expanded museum plans - and his promise to hire "an internationally renowned architect."

•   Kamin gives (mostly) thumbs-up to University of Chicago's building spree: "the surge of construction as a whole is praiseworthy," but for "all their individual distinction," it doesn't "come close to making a coherent or lively place."

•   An architectural historian explains why Dutch mosque design is misunderstood, eroding the freedom to express one's religious identity in the Netherlands.

•   Is suburbia really the new utopia?

•   A new eco-friendly library in Silver Lake, CA, fits into its historic neighborhood - and still appeals to its "hip demographic."

•   An eyeful of the winning design for King's Cross gasometer (and the runners-up).

•   Nevada architects launch "Pencil Ready Projects" program to steer stimulus money toward design work: "Contractors know that if we aren't drawing, they aren't building."

•   Outgoing CABE chief calls for architects to resign from bad schemes to prevent bad buildings being built (like that's gonna happen).

•   BD's Baillieu and her climate change arguments stir up a firestorm of responses (with links to most of them).

•   Also sure to stir things up: CTBUH changes height criteria, changing some notable buildings' rankings.

•   We can never resist San Diego Architectural Foundation's Orchids & Onions awards - "Oscars and Razzies for the built environment" (one Onion gets "a citation for disturbing the peace").

•   Call for entries: 6th European Prize for Urban Public Space.
