Today’s News - Thursday, September 27, 2012

•   Zumthor is named 2013 RIBA Royal Gold Medalist.

•   Tsay says cities have a "crucial role in addressing the global challenges of climate change": they're "small enough to act, and big enough to matter" (a most excellent read!).

•   Kimmelman is a bit confounded by Louisville's plans to expand its downtown highways (and eat into a piece of an Olmsted park).

•   Zandberg takes on the current mode in Modern architecture: the "embrace of Modernism belongs more to processes of gentrification than to an effort to find suitable and affordable housing solutions."

•   Architecture and women take center stage at the Clinton Global Initiative: "Architecture and design is a huge employer of men. Are there things we can do to make this an employer of women as well?"

•   A good question, considering a new survey predicts there will be a shortage of architects by 2014 (comments are worth a look, too).

•   London "must decentralize to become sustainable," says Rogers Stirk Harbour's Mike Davies.

•   Russell minces no words about the rusty "huge frog" (a.k.a. Barclays Center) that's landed in Brooklyn: "an extraordinarily expensive lost opportunity," and "an object lesson in how form follows finance."

•   Iovine tours the Biennale with Chipperfield, while Menking seeks its common ground.

•   Lasky reports from London's recent design festival: with apologies to Paris, Milan, and New York, "ounce for ounce, bloke for bloke, Britain produces better designers and design impresarios than anywhere else."

•   Berger "digs into what caused Seattle's scientific love affair and what it means for the city now."

•   A big win for MVRDV in Almere, Netherlands.

•   We're a bit saddened by the news that DEGW has been gobbled up - 'er, make that "rebranded."

•   SCI-Arc launches an impressive online Media Archive (we've spent way too much time there - and will go back for more!).

•   One we couldn't resist: plans for a chicken coop designed as a massive Palladian manse are a "fowl extravagance - not just tasteless - they're clucking offensive" (check out the comment section, too!).

•   Call for entries: WoodWorks' US Wood Design Awards for excellence in wood design, engineering and construction (no fee).
