Today’s News - Monday, January 24, 2011

•   It's a Gehry kind of day: ArcSpace brings us an eyeful of his New World Symphony in Miami Beach, scheduled to open tomorrow.

•   A passel of critics weigh in (who wasn't in Miami over the last few days?!!?): Ouroussoff: "the first Gehry building I have fallen in love with in years"; Hawthorne: "a piece of architecture that dares you to underestimate it or write it off at first glance"; Dunlop: "boxy New World Center sings on the inside"; and Kennicott: "it works brilliantly" (they also (mostly) like West 8's park).

•   Angotti weighs in on NYC's Vision 2020 plan for its waterfronts: what the blueprint does - and doesn't do.

•   LaBarre on a "radical proposal" to turn "an old Chinese farming town into a sort of Portland of the East."

•   Debating building subways in Chinese cities: are they "environmentally friendly traffic solution or waste of public money?"

•   Also from China: "the interior design sector has come of age" (for medium to large firms; not so swell for the little guys).

•   Pedersen on the "Nexus" concept, "an unprecedented overhaul" of New Orleans' education system to "make neighborhood schools central to the economic and cultural rebirth of New Orleans" (and it might actually happen!).

•   Davidson gives thumbs-up to Leeser's Museum of the Moving Image expansion - inside and out: "He has bottled air."

•   Litt cheers a Cleveland museum's plan to build the city's first passive house.

•   Non-profs and animals are winners all: desigNYC's 2011 match-up of a new crop of designers meet their designated nonprofits + ARC International Wildlife Crossing competition winner will help migratory wildlife cross a an otherwise deadly interstate in Colorado.
