Today’s News - Wednesday, April 15, 2015

•   Mackenzie minces no words in criticizing the critics of ARM Architecture's Portrait building in Melbourne: he finds the criticism to be "marred by racism and unsubstantiated opinion," which "illustrates the impoverished state of public discussion about architecture" (and then some).

•   Elshahed delves into the controversy and questions swirling around the "unimaginatively christened" The Capital Cairo: "street-level renderings show a modern city that could be anywhere" (and a desert landscape "rendered in green").

•   Not done deals, but two potentially positive news items: Foster's 2 World Trade Center "might actually happen" (if things work out with Rupert Murdoch).

•   Rudolph's Orange County Government Center gets a reprieve from the wrecking ball - until July, anyway.

•   Kaji-O'Grady cheers John Wardle Architects/NADAAA's Melbourne School of Design that "yields a layered new school rich in ideas and meticulous in detail."

•   A new pedestrian bridge in Gothenburg by Erik Andersson Architects will have "a narrow profile that seemingly floats over the water."

•   A Minneapolis skyway becomes the "ultimate recycling project," first to be transformed into an interactive art installation before becoming a lakeside home.

•   Eyefuls of an impressive shortlist of 6 vying to design Oslo's government quarter.

•   After "a not-so-ideal turnout in its first run" last year, Liget Budapest Design Competition 2.0 settles on Snøhetta and SANAA in a tie to design the new National Gallery - Ludwig Museum.

•   Eyefuls of the 2014 - 2015 A' Architecture, Building and Structure Design Award winners (miles of 'em!).

•   A University Of Maryland team wins the 2015 ULI Hines Competition to redevelop a site in downtown New Orleans (great presentation - including all the finalists).

•   Public Architecture's John Peterson tapped as new curator of Harvard GSD's Loeb Fellowship.

•   Call for entries: 2015 Brick in Architecture Awards (deadline looms!) + World Architecture Festival/WAF Awards (early bird deadline looms!) + The Seasteading Institute Floating City Project.
