Today’s News - Monday, April 26, 2010

•   ArcSpace brings us Perrault's tennis center in Madrid.

•   Gruber on the politics of design when it comes to civic projects: "it's demeaning to architects and designers to say that what they do is not political."

•   Litt hopes he's wrong about Cleveland's slim chance of getting "an iconic, landmark bridge"; there's a better "chance that the bridge will be a dud, aesthetically speaking" (politics involved, no doubt).

•   Bayley on Liverpool's return from the dead - "splendid proof that you can design your way out of a depression" (too bad politicians haven't noticed).

•   Lewis welcomes the "the era of smart growth... Optimism is justified."

•   Russell turns being stranded in Germany by volcanic action into a tale of two cities: "In contrast to Hamburg's bustle, Berlin is a city still sorting out the past."

•   Moore marvels at Rotterdam's pride in being modern, finding many "signs of faith in the new - sometimes naïve, sometimes misguided, sometimes impressive...Dutch architects also like perversity and a touch of madness."

•   An impressive shortlist (and lots of pix) for a new dance and music center in The Hague.

•   King surveys a new San Francisco tower that "shows how new buildings can enrich the urban scene - not by aping the past but by taking cues from the context, then adding to it with intelligence and craft."

•   L.A.'s A+D Museum (finally) opens in its new permanent home tomorrow.

•   New Zealand wool leaders invite "14 internationally-renowned architects" from all over to design a concept hotel out of wool (wish we knew who they are and what they came up with!).

•   SMIBE collects films "that touch on this notion of recording or 'preserving,' space visually."

•   Forget Avatar - 3D printers are transforming how the world of design works: "Every garage is a potential micro-factory."

•   Call entries: Conover Cottage design competition for three circa 1931 structures in Brooklyn (winning proposals will all be built); and deadline reminder: Game Changers.

•   Eyefuls of Culture Counts: UNESCO Year for the Rapprochement of Cultures poster competition winners.
