Flinders Street Station Design Competition


Today’s News - Tuesday, July 10, 2012

•   Sydney tackles its "urban planning nightmare" with a plan to turn the "dilapidated" Parramatta Road into a "livability corridor."

•   Farrelly minces no words about what she thinks of the plan: whatever happened to the competition-winning idea from 10 years ago that was "pretty much the same idea, only higher, denser and more exciting."

•   Moore meanders around London's East End and ponders whether the Olympics' "helping hand" will make things better: "One might hope, but not especially expect."

•   Berger wonders whether Seattle could pull off another World's Fair: "The simple answer is no...We seem to have lost a willingness to gamble and have fun doing it" (never mind the civic gridlock and nay-saying).

•   Jenkins jousts with the pro-Shard supporters: it "has slashed the face of London for ever," and the Thames "is to become a ditch of cash running through a canyon of glass."

•   Architects weigh in on the Affordable Care Act, and how it will impact healthcare architecture.

•   Machado and Silvetti tapped to transform former home of the Parrish Art Museum into a new cultural center for Southampton, NY.

•   Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design to make its home on Greek Street in London's Soho.

•   Nine new pedestrian bridges in Abu Dhabi are having a "positive impact" says the architect (though another report finds jaywalking still prevalent because "dodging traffic is faster").

•   McGuirk finds much to like about two new pop-up playgrounds as part of the London Festival of Architecture - including one by Rockwell, but "there is no playground like an adventure playground."

•   Lubell takes a look at the practice and pitfalls of unpaid internships: not only are they not legal, but "not offering money lowers the bar all the way down the line."

•   Mayor Bloomberg launches adAPT NYC competition in a pilot program to develop teeny tiny apartments for today's typical city dweller (some bending of zoning laws allowed).

•   Call for entries: adAPT NYC RFP: Develop Replicable Design for Micro-Units - Apartments Smaller than Currently Allowed.

•   Deadline reminder: Call for entries: 2012 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize.

•   Vote for North Carolina's best Modernist houses in the inaugural Matsumoto Prize Competition (open to all).

•   We couldn't resist: first look at a Z Boat (by Zaha, of course - a hybrid yacht by Rem could be next).
