Today’s News - Thursday, May 27, 2010

EDIOR'S NOTE: An abbreviated late edition posted from London (so we're not too backed up with news when we return Tuesday, June 1st)&hellip

•   Perhaps because we spent yesterday with Renzo Piano at his colorful Central ST. Giles (we like it!):

•   Ouroussoff on Piano's addition to the Kimbell Museum: first, was he sane when he accepted the challenge; the result shows the "respect for Kahn's masterwork, in which one can feel Piano reworking Kahn's ideas over and over in his head, is obvious."

•   Piano's expansion "offers something of an olive branch to critics."

•   His Whitney expansion near the High Line gets final go-ahead.

•   Still in a London state of mind: the U.K. government scraps regional development agencies and the Infrastructure Planning Commission - but many question the wisdom (even if it is an effort to cut budget).

•   Saffron gets our gold star of the day in her reporting on Philly's planned Family Court building - the judge pulls the plug.

•   Digging deep into the landscape design of CityCenter in Las Vegas (and its "whopping budget").

•   Rochon has an imaginative late-night conversation with FLW at Fallingwater.

•   Winner selected to design on-site cottages near the master's masterpiece.

•   "Fellowship: 75 Years of Taliesin Box Projects" shows off FLW's protoges' tokens of appreciation to their master so many years ago.

•   Moore finds Sudjic's Foster biography "explains how Foster has helped to transform his profession," but it "lacks a sense of revelation."

•   Banned in Beijing, but see it now: "New Beijing: Reinventing a City."

•   Call for entries: Crafting Excellence: Create the official logo for the UNESCO Award of Excellence for Handicrafts.
