Today’s News - Monday, January 14, 2013

•   ArcSpace brings us OMA's CCTV HQ, the Torre David tome, and a sneak-peek of "Invisible Cities" heading for MASS MoCA (and a hearty welcome to new editor Morten Wilhelm Scholz).

•   Jacobs revisits some favorite waterfront haunts - post-Sandy: "Maybe sand isn't real estate."

•   Jaffe reports on the new NYS 2100 Commission recommendations: "New York is beginning to accept the fact that when it comes to weather patterns along its coasts, there's a terrifying new normal."

•   Heathcote ponders "the bad and the beautiful," and why the "pursuit of beauty has become slightly taboo."

•   Moore queries Piano re: the Shard (and more): "I was aware of risks with the project when I took it on, but the best things in life are always a little dangerous."

•   Hopkirk hops from one pinnacle to another: "the Shard beats the Empire State Building for humor" (with pix to prove it) - but the New York views are better.

•   Wainwright x 2: he's very impressed by the views from the Shard ("heavenly voices" included) - with just a few niggles in between.

•   He tackles the Assemblage vs. Hadid controversy re: the Iraqi Parliament competition: "if the client changes their mind and opts for her "eroded mountains," it risks losing a scheme that offers a radical new form of open parliamentary campus and a truly democratic piece of city-making."

•   Bad-news day for preservationists: Neutra's Cyclorama in Gettysburg has a date with a wrecking ball in its future (Dion Neutra "says he is ready to chain himself to the building").

•   Things aren't looking much brighter for Goldberg's Prentice hospital - though it did get a 30-day stay of execution for the National Trust for Historic Preservation to file an amended suit.

•   Betsky revisits Graves's San Juan Capistrano Library in California 30 years later: "when he is on top of his game, he can make magic" (he was the only one in a coterie including a government-employed architect, a modernist aesthete, and a former editor who likes it).

•   Goldhagen offers a most eloquent tribute to Huxtable: she "trenchantly attacked today's starchitects (and their clients) for an excess of what she dubbed 'helicopter architecture.'"

•   A fascinating inside take on the Guangzhou Awards For Urban Innovation, and summaries of 45 of the most impressive entries.

•   Our must-reads of the day: profiles of Game Changers 2013 written by some of our faves.

•   Winners all: 2013 AIA Institute Honor Awards in Architecture, Interiors, and Urban Design (great presentation) + Design Museum's Designs of the Year 2013 shortlist (some familiar, some surprises!) + Four architects receive Order of Canada.
