Today’s News - Tuesday, March 13, 2012

•   Part 3 of ANN's exclusive series "You Survived" advises "Turn off the auto-pilot and engage: Ideas and tips to foster a thriving practice in 2012."

•   Why the decision to award Wang Shu should "be understood as a major statement on the part of the Pritzker jury": it "is not only about architecture and Wang's work, but also about the broader implications of China's rise."

•   LaBarre offers eyefuls of the High Line Part Trois: the "third phase should be the best by far. Prediction: Many, many wedding photographs will be taken here" (will us grups be allowed to play on the oh-so-cool rubberized-beam playground?).

•   DS+R also tapped to design the first the adjacent Hudson Yards residential tower - and an arts center (along with Rockwell Group).

•   Kamin cheers Chicago's mayor announcing final funds for the first phase of Bloomingdale Trail (the city's own version of the High Line): it's "no urban planner's fantasy, despite years of delays that have made it seem that way" + a great slide show.

•   Birnbaum offers good news for landscape architects: "employment prospects are better than those of architects and your work is appreciated more than ever - think of the High Line. Bad news, you don't always get the credit - think of the High Line" (we found so many High Line stories today - so few with design credit).

•   King has high hopes for revamped plans for San Francisco's tallest tower next to Transbay Terminal - "without some of the original flourishes."

•   Starchitects might have been "all the rage during the condo building boom. But resale prices show star power goes only so far."

•   Rosenbaum has more on Rudolph's Orange County Government Center: "You can sound you own alarm...Don't decimate. Renovate!"

•   It seems Orange County, NY, would prefer "ersatz Colonial over ur-Brutalist"; a great (but rather sad) slide show - including interiors.

•   Stan Allen reflects on the last 20 years of architectural education in the U.S. (a long but fascinating read!).

•   Seattle gets serious about its street lights; answers to a public survey "could affect how cities everywhere are illuminated."

•   A tiny German village becomes a model for renewable energy, and people from around the world are "flocking to this otherwise unremarkable rural community to see if they can replicate its success" (it's proving "nothing is impossible").

•   10 Questions for Gehry Technologies' Shelden: Who was an influential boss for you? "I think I have to state the obvious one, which is Frank Gehry himself."

•   A "strong Scottish shortlist" announced for the inaugural RIAS Awards (Scotland's own Stirling in the making).

•   In South Africa, the 25th annual Corobrik Architectural Student of the Year Award goes to a University of Pretoria student's proposal for "a strong, adaptive re-use design that recycled an abandoned historical military site with a contentious history."
