Today’s News - Tuesday, August 31, 2010

•   We're back from the Biennale and will have our own report one of these days (when we're a bit less dazed).

•   In the meantime, Glancey, Menking, and Hawthorne offer their (often amusing) takes on what they saw.

•   Eyefuls of the winners of Golden Lions for best national pavilion, best project, etc. (our fingers were crossed that our fave from the Kingdom of Bahrain would win - it did!).

•   Also making a splash along the canals of Venice: Audi Urban Future Award winner J. Mayer H. (and notable runner-up's).

•   Heathcote says Strelka is no ordinary architecture school, but "an arrow pointing in the right direction" for Moscow (hopefully - with Koolhaas at the helm).

•   Massive mega-project Stuttgart 21 faces major resistance, mostly because of a serious "breakdown in communications" between citizens and politicians: "is the idea genuinely bad or just poorly marketed?"

•   Hadid bags her first commission in Baghdad.

•   Davidson on the "crop of ungainly monoliths that will soon make up Manhattan's skyline" + the battle over the Empire State Building's views "was over before it even really began."

•   Bozikovic finds Teeple's new Toronto co-op is "a building that works. Yes, it looks sexy and impractical," but "it has substance, too."

•   Rothstein finds mixed messages in the new Yellowstone visitor center overlooking Old Faithful: "the geyser is so carefully framed here, it can seem almost denatured" (but, for the most part, he likes it).

•   Stantec's buying spree now includes Anshen + Allen: the "acquisition is being made on friendly terms, a 'must' for this industry because people are the assets."

•   If that's true, what's in store for RMJM, which just lost five key people (and some uncertainty about former Hillier office in Princeton to boot?).
