•   Szenasy's Q&A with Oren Safdie re: "False Solution," the last of his trilogy of plays with "a weighty subject at its heart, the Holocaust and the memorials architects build - he talks about memory, design, ego, and sexual politics" (opening June 13 in NYC) .

•   Weekend diversions: Lubell brings us eyefuls of the 6-ton(!) model at the heart of "The Presence of the Past: Peter Zumthor Reconsiders LACMA" (and the architect "admitted that he came up with the sinuous shape 'out of pure desperation'" - doubtless there are those who think it looks it).

•   A lotta MoMA: the breathtaking Corbu show "reveals the sources of his varied approach to design and the root of influence in his work" + Merwood-Salisbury finds that the Labrouste show allows "us to see material we thought we knew in an entirely new light" + MoMA PS1's "Expo 1: New York" is "a sprawling, multisite extravaganza."

•   "Light Houses: Young Nordic Architecture" at the Museum of Finnish Architecture, Helsinki, "highlights topical social and environmental themes, looking at the sobering economic constraints and diminishing environmental resources."

•   In Shanghai, "Spectacle: 12 Presentations of Contemporary Museum Architecture in China" is "a well-timed exhibition" that "explores 'the social, cultural, and political transformations' they produce...Still, architects being architects..."

•   Farrelly finds Cantrill and Thalis's "Public Sydney: Drawing the City" a "magnificent tome" that "resonates with passion and intelligence. Such a document has not been seen before in this country."

•   Heathcote hails Thurley's "Men from the Ministry: How Britain Saved its Heritage": "Though his parade of bureaucrats can be wearying at times, the end result is magnificent."
