Today’s News - Thursday, July 29, 2010

EDITOR'S NOTE: Apologies for delay, but the cable guy had us off-line while upgrading our connection to the internets&hellip

•   Zandberg talks with a Palestinian architect about the "forced ecology of occupation" and his style which he calls "the cacophony of a refugee."

•   Szenasy on Hosey's G-List and Vanity Fair's A-List: it's time for the two to start working together.

•   An in-depth look at development opportunities in Cairo: "growth will likely occur in satellite cities - similar to suburban areas in the U.S." (oh no!).

•   Viñoly tackles Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate in Boston: "a fundamental challenge: making sure the new building doesn't outshine Pei's Kennedy Library + it's "neither left-leaning nor right, it's conscientiously bipartisan, a study in symmetry" + lots of images.

•   Rochon cheers a new Toronto tower that "serves as an elegant urban connector" and "combines the right ingredients to instantly put a visitor in a good mood."

•   LaBarre isn't quite sure what to make of new Dali museum in Florida: it's "66,000 square feet wholly befitting his shtick" (and pix to prove it!).

•   An architect on the importance of design in correctional facilities and the "unique opportunity" for architects to have "an effect on the potentially rehabilitated human mind of inmates."

•   Gehry x 2: he apologizes to Core Architects for dissing their design of condo replacing his childhood home (click Yesterday's News if you missed it) + he explains from whence came his fishy inspiration: it had "nothing to do with the fish in the bathtub" (and don't call him Ephraim).

•   Brussat on the secretive process going on re: Providence pedestrian bridge designs (with hopes the winner isn't the "Sopwith Camel Gas Station").

•   DLR acquires KKE Architects to "enhance its capabilities in China."

•   V&A pays big bucks for rare (and really big!) Philip Johnson drawing - part of privately owned (and previously unknown) archive.

•   Winners all: Saskatchewan Association of Architects 2010 Prairie Design Awards; and 2010 Brick in Architecture Awards.

•   Call for entries: $100,000 Lemelson-MIT Award for Sustainability.
