Today’s News - Tuesday, July 16, 2013

•   Lange takes a long (and fascinating!) look at architecture's "lean-in moment": Scott Brown's Pritzker controversy is "a wake-up call for an entire profession struggling for relevancy and respect - more than its treatment of women has to change."

•   The end of an era (we're sure to see lots of these in the coming months): WNYC's "New York Remade: The Bloomberg Years" series includes a look at Bloomberg's building boom: "making the city more attractive has also made it less affordable" (click through to some other great reports, too).

•   Badger looks at the affordability issue: the challenge for Bloomberg's successors "is how to expand the geography of desirable, healthy, safe neighborhoods while also expanding the population of locals who can afford to call those places home."

•   Chaban reports on MAS's Penn Station report that "predicts the development of 20 million to 30 million square feet of new offices, hotels and apartment buildings in the area."

•   Manhattan finally in line for its own "Zaha moment" next to the High Line (where else? only one image, but it's a wow - sort of).

•   An interesting look at how L.A.'s downtown low-rise, suburban-style building spree is missing "a chance to create residential density where it makes the most urban planning sense."

•   Ransford is a bit riled about Vancouver's planning for change: "Managing growth in a smart way means making trade-offs. The problem is that the trade-offs should have been explicitly identified early on, about 25 meetings or so ago."

•   An Italian architect is making his mark with green medium-rise buildings in Mindanao.

•   The Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas continues to broil under the Museum Tower's reflections: "despite many efforts, it doesn't look like a resolution is coming anytime soon."

•   The 101-year-old Toledo Museum of Art gets a 21st-century energy upgrade and actually goes off the grid.

•   Wainwright "applauds a master" with high praise for Rogers' 50-year career, and his "Inside Out" show that "gives an overarching sense of a man dedicated to making places for all people - and having a good time doing so."

•   An architect thinks it's time for black to be the new black in architecture.

•   A good reason to start making plans to head to Manila this fall: Habitat for Humanity's Asia-Pacific Housing Forum 4: Housing as a Foundation for Breaking the Poverty Cycle.

•   One we couldn't resist: Plunkitt explains that LA's answer to gridlock would be a "streamlined planning & permitting process!"

•   Call for entries: IE School of Architecture's Houses for Change - Architecture for Social Responsibility (international).
