Today’s News - Tuesday, May 25, 2010

EDITOR'S NOTE: We're making a second go at getting to ye merry London Town - volcano gods willing this time - so there will be no newsletter tomorrow. We'll try (can't promise) posting Thursday and Friday; we won't be posting Memorial Day/Monday, but promise to be back for sure Tuesday, June 1.

•   Bernstein makes the case for moving Mies's Farnsworth House - but only further from the Fox River (not to East Hampton or Beverly Hills).

•   Lindsay x 3: A report from CNU conference - HUD embraces New Urbanism; Duany "appeared deeply suspicious of his own movement's success"; and Calthorpe comes up with metrics that he hopes will change politics.

•   A serious look at how "serious research into Wal-Mart's architecture could yield more than better boxes: all those numbers could add up to real change."

•   A look at some initiatives to re-think our addiction to asphalt parking lots.

•   Robert Adam argues "the case for classical design and urges a move away from a world split between new localism and kowtowing to fashion."

•   Pearman ponders three young classicists who are storming RIBA "with confidence, self-belief - and a great sense of fun" with a show that's not to be missed.

•   Hawthorne on Broad's big museum plans for L.A., and the big names attached - even though there's no confirmed site.

•   Woodman is not wowed by Hadid's MAXXI in Rome: it is "certainly spectacular," but he's never "encountered a gallery that addresses its nominal function with such seeming cynicism."

•   Halprin's Heritage Park in Ft. Worth on the list of Texas' Most Endangered Historic Places; now, in "a beautiful ironic twist," it's on the National Register of Historic Places (with high hopes for a much-needed restoration).

•   Huxtable and Rybczynski tackle Palladio exhibit at NYC's Morgan Library: it's "a miraculous fusion of the distant past and immediate present."

•   Kamin on the winners in competition to fill the Chicago Spire hole ("a load of whimsy" included).

•   California is home to C2C MBDC's latest initiative, the non-profit Green Products Innovation Institute.

•   Aga Khan Award for Architecture shortlists 19 projects (great presentations, too).

•   University of Montreal's L.E.A.P is "a resource all architecture geeks will want to know about."

•   We couldn't resist: Call for entries: Redesign BP's logo (a look at current submissions made us smile and wince).
