Today’s News - Tuesday, May 3, 2011

EDITOR'S NOTE: We will not be posting the newsletter tomorrow, but we'll be back Thursday, May 5.

•   McGuigan takes Ivy's top spot at Arch Record, and Czarnecki sits in Busch's seat at Contract magazine (we cheer them both!).

•   Glaeser is glad to have more than one city ranking survey because they have the "power to excite passion and debate" and "generate interest in the problems and promise of urban areas far more readily than balanced discussions of the pros and cons of different places."

•   Red walls vs. blue walls: scientists "focus on how architecture and design can influence our moods, thoughts and health" - and even shape how we think.

•   A 15-country research study hopes to figure out why it's so difficult for architects to use solar strategies in building design.

•   The "picture for young Mexican architects is buoyant once again" and an eyeful of 12 projects to prove it.

•   Washington, DC's downtown mega-development (with Foster and Gustafson at the helm) "looks like a people-centric design" and could be "an improved model for how to integrate sustainable design" into dense downtown areas everywhere.

•   Kamin's "annual rite of spring" is a visit to Mies's Farnsworth House, where he always finds surprises.

•   Boora gets how projects get done at Stanford University so that whatever the project, "everybody still talks to each other and likes each other. That's not always the norm."

•   A "surrealist" Japanese architect to take two teahouses to new heights.

•   Winners all: eyefuls of AIA Las Vegas and VSAIA design awards.

•   A good reason to be in NYC May 20: Reinventing Public Place in New York City: Brooklyn Bridge Park, a Harvard GSD symposium.

•   Call for submissions: MONU magazine #15 - "Post-Ideological Urbanism."
