Today’s News - Thursday, June 2, 2011

•   Glancey is enthralled with Hadid's "triumphant" transport museum: "a quietly charismatic affair" that is not "Glasgow's Guggenheim" - in a good way (great slide show, too) + A video tour.

•   Davidson minces no words about what he thinks of Piano's Whitney: it's "a missed opportunity of majestic proportions...even if it performs all the multifarious tasks...it still has the makings of a dud" (ouch!).

•   Higher hopes in the wind at Virginia Commonwealth University which has tapped Holl to design its new Institute for Contemporary Art.

•   Moore bemoans the sad state - and fate - of much of Britain's Modernist masterpieces (with terrific slide show/essay).

•   Portland architects lead efforts to have Graves's 29-year-old Portland Building listed as a national historic landmark: the nomination "like the building itself, is a little more complicated than it appears" + Q&A with Graves re: architecture, product design, and legacies.

•   High hopes that the "ugly duckling" plan for Lexington, KY's CenterPointe project "could be replaced by a swan" now that Gang's on board.

•   After 25 years, the unrealized possibilities of a Maryland transit hub/TOD get a second chance (hopefully minus the corruption this time around).

•   Kamin considers the hits - and misses - made in renovating Tigerman's Anti-Cruelty Society building (at least the puppies and kittens don't broil in the windows anymore).

•   Dubai-based Land Art Generator Initiative gets the nod from NYC to launch LAGINYC 2012 design competition for a "beautiful, renewable energy public artwork" for Freshkills Park.

•   We couldn't resist: a Q&A with developer who demolished Great Gatsby mansion to make way for five $10 million manses: just how do you begin to do damage control? (pix, but no architects, included).
