Today’s News - Monday, June 14, 2010

EDITOR'S NOTE: Apologies for this morning's late posting after being offline for so long - flight delay from Miami got us back to home base in the wee hours of the morn (a malfunctioning alarm clock didn't help)...there's so much catching up to do...we'll do our best (throughout the week).

•   We are truly saddened to return home to the news that MIT's Bill Mitchell has left us much, much too soon.

•   ArcSpace brings us OMA's first foray into Canada.

•  McGuigan on "the end of excess" and why "the trophy building is so over."

•   Or is it? Mumbai and Dubai go head-to-head in a race to build the world's tallest residential tower.

•   A fairly in-depth look at architectural biomicry and its champions who "hope that their gold standard may eventually become simply standard - however quixotic that hope may now appear."

•   King succumbs to "the allure of audacious design" for a Bay Bridge Gateway Park: "the potential here is remarkable - and we'll only have one chance to make the most of it."

•   Betsky responds to critics of his comments about Gehry's Ruvo Center in Las Vegas.

•   Dublin's Glasnevin Cemetery has a new museum and heritage building "made of glass - and underground, which is particularly appropriate given what it aims to remind us of."

•   A performing arts center in Bellevue, Washington, gets $25 million, a new name - and it's "shovel-ready."

•   A new synagogue in Scarsdale, NY, balances intimacy and community in an existing temple complex already adorned by some very notable names.

•   Giovannini finds Barnard College's Diana Center innovatively addresses urbanism, architecture, landscape, and social life.

•   How could we resist a spectacular slide show of Shanghai Expo pavilions that "put on quite a show" (with nary a peek at their "lackluster neighbors").

•   A great presentation of Canada's 2010 National Urban Design Awards.
