Today’s News - Thursday, October 14, 2010

•   Zumthor tapped to tackle 2011 Serpentine Gallery ("design folk probably won't be too bothered by the rule-bending").

•   Speck offers up the 10 Worst Things About Suburban Sprawl: "it is a good time to step back and remind ourselves what we're still up against" (great slide show essay with some most amusing captions).

•   Boulton calls for architects to lead urban growth: "It is our civic duty to engage the realms outside of our day-to-day firm operations and help guide the evolution of the places we live in. What better way to assert that Architecture Matters."

•   Q&A with BSA President Chan: he has "distinct views of what a city should be and what his profession can accomplish."

•   It's being called the "bonfire of the quangos" as the U.K. axes and reorganizes hundreds of them (CABE is safe - so far).

•   City Gallery Prague completes renovations on an artist's home, now open to the public again.

•   LaBarre on "I-am-kind-of-an-ET" designer's first foray into architecture: a quirky eco-retreat "from the queen of quirk herself."
