Today’s News - Monday, January 11, 2010

•   ArcSpace brings us Coop Himmelb(l)au making music in Denmark, and Enrique Norten/TEN Arquitectos master planning in Mexico City.

•   Kamin from Dubai x 2: "architectural feats are undercut by shoddy urban planning...at the expense of the fundamentals of making livable cities" + the Empire State Building offers a history lesson "for those crying 'hubris.'"

•   Hume heaves his own wave of hubris re: the burj: "This is the Hummer of contemporary architecture."

•   Architects working in Dubai "have had to turn their attention to working up drawings for more grounded projects, such as schools and hospitals."

•   How could we resist: base jumping from the burj (not for the queasy).

•   Jeddah's tallest tower nears completion: lots of parking and the world's largest digital advertising screen - "a benchmark for advertising in Saudi Arabia" (just what the city needs, no doubt).

•   Appelbaum on a "seductive first step" for NYC's Queens waterfront.

•   Katrina Cottages become "the model for 'affordable, flood-resistant housing'" on Long Island.

•   Behre cheers a new library and science center for a Charleston private school that blends old and modern approaches (it's very green, too).

•   Job postings: Grima is heading to Europe for new adventures, so NYC's Storefront for Art and Architecture is looking for a new director (applications due February 7); and Landscape Architecture magazine is looking for an editor-in-chief (apply by January 22).

•   Highlights of the Finnish and Norwegian pavilions at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

•   A good reason to head to Toronto this month: a new design festival.

•   Call for entries: ULI Amanda Burden Urban Open Space Award.

•   One we couldn't resist: Pentagram's "quick, fun bit of psychoanalysis for type geeks" (and the rest of us - password included).
