Today’s News - Thursday, October 4, 2012

•   Hanscom pays tribute to Commoner, a "scientist who wasn't afraid to make some noise" and "speak out against environmental ills that science showed to be ecologically damaging."

•   Rosenbaum reaches out to Phoenix officials re: the fate of FLW's David Wright House: "We are not going to let them demolish that building!"

•   The owner agrees to hold off demolition - for now, saying he might not have purchased it if he realized its full significance: "It's safe to say that it was ignorance on my part."

•   Brake's take on Brooklyn's Barclays Center: "Innovative and intelligent architecture and public space mark a hopeful start for the controversial Atlantic Yards project" with a good dose of "uncommon civic generosity" (though inside it's a bit "drab" and "gloomy").

•   Bernstein is totally taken by H&deM's Parrish Art Museum: the "building is a triumph," and "inside, it's one success after another" (with pix to prove it).

•   Moussavi's MOCA Cleveland "may make the loudest design statement, but it's far from the only symbol of bold, 21st century urbanism in the neighborhood" (as pix prove, but alas, no architects credited).

•   A warning to Feilden Clegg Bradley re: revamp of Southbank Centre: "It's not going to be a pleasant experience."

•   Pro's weigh in on some of Pittsburgh's "game-changing" architecture.

•   Pearman's (rather amusing) encounter with de Botton: he has no trouble "filling the intriguing modern holiday homes," but "it's dealing with the architectural ego that has caught him by surprise."

•   Next up for Living Architecture will be either "a cross between a wayside chapel and a fairytale gingerbread house," or a "pseudo-subversive neo-kitsch" affair.

•   Notes from day one of 2012 WAF in Singapore: "many conversations considered the role of the individual building within the wider urban setting."

•   Murray reports on critic and WAF keynoter Buchanan: he "claims Neo-Modernism and Parametricism are 'not the future'; despite architecture having reached 'a level of maturity and expertise,' there is still 'an awful lot of rubbish being built.'"

•   A very amusing conversation with Peter Marino: the "bow-legged, armor-clad moto-cowboy with impeccable taste bares his biceps - and his soul."

•   AIA introduces "An Architect's Guide to Integrating Energy Modeling in the Design Process" to help predict the energy usage of buildings.

•   2012 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize goes to the team responsible for the "impeccable restoration" of "one of Japan's most representative Modern buildings.

•   Brussat has a field day with Smallwood's "Parthenon of chicken coops" that "has generated more than a peck of clucking. Perhaps chicken henvy is at play here."

•   Call for entries: Next Generation Design Competition: "Empower with Inclusive Design."
