Today’s News - Tuesday, September 14, 2010

•   Toyo Ito named 2010 Praemium Imperiale Laureate in architecture.

•   Moore takes on CABE: "Things would be worse if Cabe weren't there," but it "needs to be much less obliging" (otherwise known as "mateyness").

•   McLennan and Costello take on our water infrastructure that "is now on the brink of collapse": it's time "to ask ourselves if there isn't a better way to manage our water systems."

•   The Minneapolis riverfront will soon be home to a memorial garden to the I-35W bridge disaster: "something beautiful can come out of something so tragic."

•   Litt x 2 on Cleveland's waterfronts (part of a national trend): first up - a new public park on the Cuyahoga River; and Rosales tapped for three pedestrian bridges, marking "the period in which Cleveland embraced the idea of pedestrian bridges as works of art."

•   Architectural historian Eggener searches small towns for big things and "finds strange objects born of local pride or personal whimsy or sheer tenacity" (great pix).

•   The Portrait building is "likely to become Melbourne's most significant or most controversial building" with "an architectural world first": the image of indigenous leader across its 32-story façade "sculpted in light and shade using the building's white concrete balconies" (and we thought Aqua was cool).

•   Meanwhile, the University of Technology, Sydney's "largest and most important ceremonial venue" gets a "once-in-a-generation overhaul."

•   If everything works out, "Frank Gehry will design a building that will put Hamilton (Canada) on the map" (and give a boost to Pan Am stadium plans?).

•   Virginia Tech's Lumenhaus "is about more than just solar power" (or winning the 2010 Solar Decathlon Europe).

•   Gray offers an eyeful of some of NYC's historic parking garages that are "far from pedestrian" (and some still hard at work).

•   3-D printing spurs a manufacturing revolution (pretty soon we'll all be able to afford our own machine!).

•   A handy round-up of some of the best and most important printed and online publications for landscape architects (and the rest of us who care).

•   Call for Expressions of Interest: Victoria & Albert Museum's Exhibition Road Competition.
