Today’s News - Tuesday, April 13, 2010

•   Ouroussoff's take on big plan for NYC's Governors Island: it "offers reassuring evidence that it is possible to get the tricky balance between public good and private interests right - or at least right enough" (great slide show).

•   An Indian architect has big plans to transform New Delhi's "filth-filled, age-old drains" into "scenic lakes with walkways and cycle tracks alongside."

•   Q&A with Karmi: is the Holyland project Jerusalem's worst atrocity? "I think it is a very ugly project, an eyesore...those who carried it out murdered my concept and the buildings I planned."

•   Winnipeg's local talent is busy creating urban gems despite the bad economy.

•   An eyeful of some Australian architects' awesome entries to the Venice Biennale: "they are all acts of willful optimism" (and then some, we'd say).

•   To expand or not expand: a rift rises re: what the Whitney Museum should do.

•   Smith says go for it - in an artful way; a successful expansion "hinges not on the size but the quality of the space" (and by the way, Piano's "track record for museums hasn't been too great lately" - ouch!).

•   Mack is back (!) with a review of Minneapolis's new ballpark: its "stellar design" gets the details right, creating a place "people will call their own."

•   Hume delights in Toronto's new Mini Cooper dealership that "fulfills its urban duties with aplomb" by being "one of the most striking structures to appear in the city in some time" (it's "elegant and fun" to boot).

•   New hope for Hejduk's Kreuzberg Tower: developers now say "they will meet with the design community to take public opinion into consideration, and perhaps rethink their plans."

•   Ingenhoven slams London's Orbit tower: "one immediately gets the feeling that there is simply too much."

•   It's worth your time to watch Prince-Ramus talk about his "theater machine" in Dallas (and why architects are "cowards").

•   Yost looks beyond just the exhibits in Yale's Saarinen show to find "a delightful irony to seeing his retrospective in buildings designed by two canon-approved modernists."

•   Russell on MoMA's "Rising Currents": Bergdoll "is unleashing architectural talent in the service of issues, not just entertainment" to "open our eyes to the enormous possibilities in scandalously neglected waterfronts."

•   An eyeful of TreeHugger's Best of Green: Design and Architecture winners: they're not all the "flashiest people, products, or ideas" (some very cool surprises).

•   People moves: Rosa rambles from Art Institute of Chicago to head University of Michigan's art museum; and Cary departs Public Architecture and leaves leadership in Peterson's hands.

•   One we couldn't resist: NYC gets pixilated (it's bizarre).
