Today’s News - Monday, January 30, 2012

•   ArcSpace brings us an eyeful of Maltzan/Leader's winning design for the St. Petersburg Pier in Florida.

•   Benfield delves into Ontario's "Places to Grow" regional plan and, though not perfect, he "can think of about a 100 regions south of the Canadian border that I fervently wish were attempting something this good."

•   Not all in Auckland are thrilled with the results of a feasibility study to keep new growth within urban limits (NIMBY anyone?); it will be "a litmus test for political resilience."

•   Hume fumes (again) about Toronto's mayor: "few expect Ford will lead Toronto into the 21st century...we can only hope he won't succeed in dragging us back to the last."

•   Rochon lines up a roster of Scandinavian architects and designers who are "exporting confidence and clarity to Canada and the world. When it comes to spilling the goods on your nation's brainy innovations, a little bravura doesn't hurt."

•   Berg tools around Long Beach on a bike to detail what the city is doing to make it "The Most Bicycle Friendly City in America" (it even says so on City Hall).

•   Hawthorne gives (mostly) thumbs-up to a new gallery in West Hollywood that is "one of the most conspicuous architectural debuts to appear in Southern California in a number of years," even though "its architectural imagination is hidden almost entirely beneath its sprayed-on white-stucco skin."

•   Glancey's review of the week finds "Postmodernism looks dead and soon-to-be demolished in the shape of [1987] Marco Polo House," but lives on in Brussels (in a good way); Pawson's new book is "both a pleasure and an inspiration"; and more.

•   Things are beginning to look up for Candela's 1963 Miami Marine Stadium.

•   Groves reports on a not so hopeful tale for a "perfectly good" (and we think pretty cool) 7-year-old Malibu house that could bite the dust to make room for a California Mission-style manse (star-studded neighbors none too thrilled, either).

•   Booth and Rose have a few things to say about de Botton's plans to build "temples for atheists" around the U.K.: his "doctrine feels a trifle holy."

•   Contract magazine's 2012 Interiors Awards, Designer of the Year, and Legend Award: a stellar list + Czarnecki hones in on DoY MASS Design Group that is "a primary example for how designers can rethink their role in a world of increasingly global impact."

•   An eyeful of the New York City AIDS Memorial Park Competition winner and runners-up (very interesting!).

•   A stellar list of 9 international semifinalist teams will vie for the chance to redesign the blighted Waller Creek in downtown Austin.

•   Call for entries: Aurora Borealis Arctic Observatory student architecture competition.
