Today’s News - Tuesday, June 26, 2012

EDITOR'S NOTE: Sorry for the short news day, but we're experiencing major Internet problems in (sweltering) Arizona. Hopefully, it will be resolved before tomorrow.

•   With Australia's GBCA launch of Green Star - Communities rating tool, Thornton ponders some questions surrounding sustainable communities: "What has really been lacking is the very notion of 'community.'"

•   Hausman reports from BWAF's "A View from the Future" forum, where panelists proffer: "We're not in a recession...but rather a fundamental transformation"; we need to manage risk and encourage innovation (and "savvy firms will realize the benefit that women bring to design and construction").

•   While some say the recession is creating a new "lost generation" of architects, others say the concept "may be exaggerated."

•   Heathcote has a heart-to-heart with Calatrava prior to his exhibition opening at the Hermitage: while his "structural acrobatics have become the default style of contemporary blockbuster architecture...It is, perhaps, hardly fair to blame him for inspiring the ambitions of those less able."

•   Foster tapped to design Garatti's never-completed ballet school in Cuba.

•   Berger explores Yeosu Expo 2012 in South Korea and, with a few caveats, finds it "a gem of a fair."

•   Bernstein tackles a topic close to our hearts: architecture firm websites - "the good, the bad, and the ugly" (please, please take heed!!!).

•   Will Bruder + Partners makes an "amicable" split.

•   Call for entries: City of Sydney's Green Square Town Centre Library and Green Square Plaza International Competition (we'll keep you posted re: deadline).
