Today’s News - Thursday, January 20, 2011

•   Architecture may be an important U.S. export - but "be warned: Design firms in Asia are catching up."

•   We wish we could have been a fly on the wall in London's Gopher Hole where a panel of critics "decorously agreed to differ" (instead of "spitting venom from behind the safety of Twitter").

•   A U.K. football club's architect defends proposal to demolish (for the most part) a £500 million 2012 Olympic stadium, "insisting they are sustainable and not a waste of taxpayer's money" (seats and lights recycled, oh my...Livingstone calling the idea "obscene" seems appropriate at this stage).

•   The restoration battle over Miami's Marine Stadium may be closer to a happy ending.

•   St. Paul, MN's historic Union Depot finally breaks ground on transformation into a multimodal transportation hub (after years of debate and plans).

•   Horton cheers a new gallery "that will likely challenge the future identity of all galleries, and not just in Los Angeles" (it torques! it twists! it bends!).

•   Zandberg cheers the new fountain in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square that "fits in nicely with the plaza's original anti-architectural design."

•   In Givatayim, Israel, a strategy to recycle just about everything is now showing up in local parks.

•   Q&A with Maki re: what it means to win the AIA Gold Medal and more: Are there any specific building types that you would like to design? "No. Any kind will be challenging."

•   The 2011 Solar Decathlon teams feel a bit like they're currently blowing in the wind as DOE decides to relocate from the National Mall - but to where?

•   AIA selects 5 impressive recipients for the 2011 Institute Honors for Collaborative Achievement.

•   Call for entries: Arnold W. Brunner Grant (U.S. citizens only).

•   Two we couldn't resist: an amazing collection of "mind-boggling" places people have made using junk + a colossal cathedral in suburban Madrid being built by one man out of nothing but recycled junk: "Authorities have allowed the construction to continue despite the lack of permits...perhaps out of a sense of curiosity or just plain awe."
