Today’s News - Tuesday, February 9, 2010

•   Weinstein waxes oh-so poetic about "Twilight Visions" and vintage surrealist photography: it "might just be the necessary correctives to the virtual sterility of digital imagery."

•   IMBY (yes, in my back yard): an online tool to determine how economically wind and PV systems will operate and estimate how many years it will take to recover the system's cost.

•   China gears up to salvage fire-gutted CCTV tower (probably).

•   It's local vs. foreign (well...100 miles away) in battle to win design contract for affordable housing project in Aspen.

•   Gardner thinks H3's LC3 theater atop the Beaumont at Lincoln Center will play nice with its neighbors; besides, what's already been done "has wrought such a change...that the new addition should make little difference."

•   A call for University of Saskatchewan to look beyond Collegiate Gothic for new project: it has served its purpose, but it's "dead architecture" now.

•   Will the third design for tallest tower close to Liverpool's historic waterfront pass muster (it is, after all, at least 16 feet shorter than before - wow).

•   Even more contentious are plans to replace an alternative arts collective (and bar) in Hackney with a drum-shaped Art'otel (it was approved anyway).

•   In Charleston, most are pleased with plans to save rather than demolish a 1965 federal building; if all goes well, it will be a 5-star hotel.

•   Baillieu reviews design for a new - and very green - service station: "The trouble is, having arrived you might never want to leave" - bring on the organic apple juice!

•   An eyeful of some of the Solar Decathlon Europe entries heading to Madrid this summer.

•   Santa Monica dresses up another parking garage: a "ballsy" project by Ball Nogues.

•   Meanwhile, in the Santa Monica Mountains, O'Herlihy calls it a wrap on a typical 1960s stucco home (you know it's not "typical" anymore).

•   A guide to Buenos Aires architecture: "an impressive sampling of the city's heritage and utopian ambitions" (great video).

•   Architect of the Capitol in trouble with watchdog group for increased budget request.

•   Call for entries: GSA Design Excellence Program issues two (count 'em - TWO!) RFQs for A/E services.

•   Call for entries: 2010 Best Firms to Work For (U.S & Canada).

•   How could we resist giving a plug to Unhappy Hipsters and their "deadpan captions" for Dwell Magazine's inhabited (but unsmiling) interiors.
