Today’s News - Monday, October 11, 2010

•   ArcSpace brings us an eyeful of Piano's new Resnick Pavilion at LACMA.

•   Moore has "seen the Olympic future and it works...The essential ingredients are more realism, less greed, more patience and more thought (though it's not without problems to be resolved) + Burdett "warns against Olympic middle-class ghetto" (though he's feeling more confident with the newly amended master plan).

•   Davidson on the Park51 Islamic cultural center in Lower Manhattan: "the pictures are not encouraging...a decorative distraction...to adorn a fund-raising brochure...just another developer's mirage" - a very different take than Kennicott's (see ANN 10.07.10).

•   Prince Charles "drafted" to work with DPZ in Haiti - a good thing or a political ploy, depending on who's speaking.

•   UNDP launches a knowledge sharing platform to help fight poverty (housing and construction included).

•   Hadid offers an interesting (and quite amusing) interview: why she's "happy to be on the outside," and why she will never play golf.

•   Pawson explains how Calvin Klein inspired Trappist monks: "They saw the two tables on which sweaters were displayed as being altars."

•   Bernstein cheers Bing Thom's Arena Stage in D.C., in a city that "takes itself too seriously," he loosened things up a bit - actually, a lot (and Weese never looked better - great pix).

•   Preservationists still trying to save Rudolph's Orange County Government Center: does the county have an obligation to preserve his legacy, even if its "beautiful" brutalism leaks?

•   Menking reports from the Biennale: "Amid expansive displays of derring-do and clever acts of interpretation, a silent question hangs in the air" + the sad fate of the floating Croatian pavilion: it really isn't - as has been claimed - "the biggest fiasco...in the history of Croatian architecture."

•   Meanwhile, Venice in Peril is still fighting gigantic ads on the city's most famous buildings that were supposed to bring in big bucks for restoration - they're not (we saw them...pretty ghastly stuff!).

•   Mayslits Kassif Architects' Tel Aviv Port wins European Biennial of Landscape Architecture award.

•   An eyeful of L.A. Cleantech Corridor competition winners (very cool).

•   This year's jurors of the AIA Fort Worth awards bucked tradition and did not pass out awards "like after-dinner mints."

•   Winners of the 72 Hour Urban Action Competition livened up Israel's "crummy" city Bat Yam.

•   Some amazing winners in the CoolClimate Art Contest - now, "help get the word - and the images - out."

•   Among the James Dyson Award 2010 winners: a "buoyancy bazooka" and the "seakettle."
