Today’s News - Tuesday, April 2, 2013

•   In our third Nuts + Bolts, Whitehorn puts a focus on the future: Business forecasts are looking brighter, but steady, measured growth is still your best strategy for success.

•   de Monchaux offers a most interesting take on Ito's Pritzker win: while it "acknowledges his indisputable skill and endurance, the prize also illuminates some of the deep weirdness of architecture as a profession" (sharp elbows and "hungry hustlers" included).

•   Saffron reports on the growing support behind efforts to give Denise Scott Brown her long-overdue Pritzker (tool around the petition site and you'll find some heavy hitters like Hadid, Moussavi, Rashid, Antonelli, Baan, Whiting, etc.).

•   Wainwright wanders and ponders the 2013 Capital of Culture: will Marseille's £6 billion in "flashy new architecture" (some of it "embarrassingly shouty," some "enigmatic") prove "the power of spectacle over long-term, joined-up thinking - how far this will filter out into the impoverished peripheries is questionable."

•   Lubell takes us on a tour of contemporary Parisian architecture by the "latest crop of French architects producing some of the best new work the city has seen."

•   Heathcote cheers The Shed at London's Southbank Centre, "built more like a theatrical project than an architectural one. It is an architecture of possibilities" (and perhaps a better way to go for the rest of the complex?).

•   Weiss/Manfredi's "Design Loft" beats a stellar shortlist to design Kent State's new College of Architecture and Environmental Design.

•   Prince Charles taps Poundbury architect to design the 350-home Fen Meadow development in Hampshire (it will not be a Poundbury replica, says he - time and (eventual) images will tell...).

•   Betsky and Hart take on architecture and memory - in two very different ways.

•   Wainwright makes his pick for the best of the spring season in architecture and design.

•   NYC AIDS Memorial final design is unveiled (not at all similar to winning design and nary a tree in sight - time to re-think the name "Infinite Forest").

•   An eyeful of "tree wood" by Toshihiro Oki Architect, winner of the 2nd Annual "Folly" Competition (tree included).

•   One we couldn't resist: Grabar rounds up an "April Fools Urbanist Round-Up" (e.g. "Kotkin Concedes to Florida: 'You Were Right'").

•   Call for entries: Triangle Fire Memorial Design Competition + Deadline extended for Architect mag's 2013 R+D Awards + One we couldn't resist (and one of our faves): Nominations in the 12th Annual America's Best Public Restroom Contest.
