Today’s News - Wednesday, October 3, 2012

•   Belogolovsky's ode to Seidler - his convictions and vision - on the eve of the opening of a new traveling exhibition celebrating the Australian master's 90th anniversary.

•   Good news on the preservation front: Gehry on board to master plan re-use of Miami's iconic Bacardi Tower and Museum as new home for the National YoungArts Foundation.

•   Kimmelman weighs in on some not-so-good news on the preservation front, re: an FLW "masterwork" now in "a fight for its life" in Phoenix: "steps should have been taken long ago" (possible demolition on Thursday?!!?).

•   More on efforts to save Peavey Plaza, the "heart" of Minneapolis: "Defying logic, the city has refused to consider Friedberg's updates" that "would cost less than Oslund's to install."

•   Foster beats out fellow starchitects for Manhattan's next icon: 425 Park Avenue.

•   Goldberger's take on Brooklyn's new Barclays Center: "It isn't the extraordinary place the Gehry arena would have been, but it's a decent and at times strong building" (with a few shortcomings).

•   Litt looks forward to the opening this weekend of Moussavi's MOCA in Cleveland, "a seductively mysterious four-story gemstone" that "symbolizes the view that the arts are a critical investment in a city on the mend."

•   A luscious eyeful of Piano's Astrup Fearnley Museum in Oslo, "located in what promises to become the city's hippest neighborhood."

•   Rybczynski ruminates on Safdie, a "humble architect" whose Crystal Bridges Museum "illustrates why he no longer needs to prove himself."

•   Pedersen offers a lively Q&A with Hosey, RTKL's new chief sustainability officer, about his new job, the future of sustainable architecture, and his first impressions of China.

•   Rose is more than riled about the U.K. education secretary's "war on architecture": along with banning curves in new school designs, "perhaps color should go too. Who needs it, after all?"

•   RIBA is no less irritated with the "government's 'inflexible' school templates, claiming they will 'deprive' students and teachers of quality learning environments" - and offers "a series of recommendations to improve" them.

•   Four reasons why business should embrace more activism.

•   The APA announces its list of 2012 Great Places in America and what makes them great (some surprises!).

•   The USGBC opens the 5th LEED v4 public comment period.

•   Deadline reminders: Call for entries: Future Prentice: 2012 Chicago Prize Competition + 60th Annual P/A Awards for unbuilt projects + MIPIM Architectural Review Future Projects Awards 2013 for unbuilt or incomplete projects.
