Today’s News - Monday, October 3, 2011

•   ArcSpace brings us three "poetic" (and very cool) residential projects in Japan.

•   All hail Hadid (well, for the most part, anyway) re: snagging her second Stirling: Heathcote: "award seems more surprising but somehow more wholesome"; Moore: "a worthy winner"; Woodman x 2: also "a worthy winner" - though the prize has "long since lost its credibility" (with a few snarks and sour grapes thrown in for good measure: "there was a collective groan").

•   The Lubetkin Prize and Stephen Lawrence Prize also handed out.

•   University of Maryland's WaterShed wins 2011 Solar Decathlon (with link to all the winners).

•   Four years on, is PlaNYC working? Depends on who's talking.

•   Kennicott is none too kind about Safdie's Crystal Bridges museum - though "there are compensating elements" (the name alone bothers him).

•   Gehry's "Baby Bilbao," a.k.a. Weisman Art Museum, grows up with "a seamless extension."

•   Rochon as diarists re: "citizen warriors, quixotic architects, stubborn preservationists" who "offer object lessons in the fine art of creating urban spaces that work."

•   A look at why skyscrapers "are enjoying an unlikely renaissance."

•   Arieff offers a most thoughtful take on why "new ways of thinking about 'home' are overdue": it's time to "begin considering it as part of a larger whole" instead of a "decorative object."

•   Now you see it, now you don't: Fickett's widow is "angered" and "devastated" by the practically sneaky demolition of his West Hollywood Library without letting her know + ModCom's Ward went to see for himself and found a sad sight.

•   Myers flies to Boston with Henry Cobb who ruminates on his Hancock Tower: "It's the closest I've ever come to poetry."

•   Bjarke Ingels birthday present: $500,000 Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Culture Award (we have a birthday coming up, too...).

•   NYC's Archtober gears up with a cornucopia of events for architecture and design junkies.
