Today’s News - Monday, September 20, 2010

•   ArcSpace transports us to H&deM's Miami Beach parking garage.

•   Hawthorne takes on the new phase in museum design where "architects are hands-on participants of urbanism."

•   The saga of Predock's Taiwan museum (we'd almost forgotten about that one!): nine years and two project deadlines later, the blame game continues.

•   Ohio has an "astonishing track record" for giving foreign architects their first U.S. commissions: "Here's hoping the openness to daring...will encourage daring design from local office architects."

•   Litt on the riled-up local response: "Cleveland needs - and deserves - a stronger design culture...a challenge that can't be overcome simply by guilt-tripping clients to stay local."

•   Indianapolis turns to local talent to transform a major thoroughfare into a sustainable civic space in time for the 2012 Super Bowl.

•   Even with cheerleaders like Meier, Abe, Hodgetts, and Webb, a vigorous fight to block a block of student housing near Neutra's Strathmore Apartments strikes out (was there "a breach of procedure"?).

•   Rochon on "how Finnish architecture rebranded a city" as Toronto celebrates Revell and Toronto City Hall this week.

•   U.K. architects and planners should pay heed to Ranalli's "marvelous" Saratoga Avenue Community Center in Brooklyn that proves "public architecture needn't be an eyesore": "perhaps we should ask him over here, to sort out south London."

•   A 21-foot-high Olympic clock in Trafalgar Square wins approval despite there being "much to take issue with in terms of design" (though no mention of designer).

•   Tradition meets modernity in NYC's Sukkah City designs - most of them by non-Jews, Ha`aretz points out (today's their last day in Union Square, but exhibit opens Wednesday at the Center for Architecture).

•   A new architecture academy in Chennai aims to spotlight architectural communications, and encourages not just students but also the hearing and speech impaired: "We will teach them how to see a drawing visually."

•   Call for entries: 13th Annual Berkeley Undergraduate Prize international essay contest: Valuing the Sacred + Deadline reminder: 2nd Annual BrickStainable Design Competition.

•   Eyefuls of the Safe Trestles competition winner + honorable mentions (great presentation).

•   We couldn't resist: an eyeful of Arch Record's Cocktail Napkin Sketch Contest winner and runners-up.
