Today’s News - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

•   Bevan raises some provocative questions around the Palmyra Arch in Trafalgar Square and its planned journey back to Syria: "Even if well intentioned, erecting Italian-cut Egyptian stone in the middle of Syria is about as far from authentic as you can get.

•   The Milwaukee Bucks pick a design team for its arena entertainment block.

•   Breuer's Central Library in Atlanta faces demolition, but it's not the only one: "As petitions circulate to save the monument, the question at hand centers on the cultural value and social impact of Brutalist architecture in today's urban landscape."

•   Romans take to the river retake the Tiber, "part of a surge in grass-roots efforts to restore Rome's public spaces."

•   One we couldn't resist: eyefuls of the best architectural installations of Coachella 2016 (very cool!).
