Today’s News - Wednesday, November 2, 2016

•   Betsky bemoans the lack of national interest in U.S. architectural awards, as opposed to the U.K.'s RIBA Stirling Prize - a true national event; "other than architects, who ever hears about the U.S. prizes?"

•   AIA's Scott Frank takes issue with Betsky's "lazy accounting": first, lots of Americans are aware, and second, "complaining about something without offering a solution is just whining."

•   Uncommon's Evans sees great opportunities for architects to "be Britain's greatest ambassadors following Brexit. Architecture has a lot to say. It's time to demand attention."

•   Dickinson explains "what we're losing in the robot-age of architecture," and why BIM "is the elephant in the room."

•   Brandes Gratz explains "how to prevent the mauling and malling of New York," and cheers New Yorkers for a Human Scale City (other cities should follow suit!).

•   Wainwright visits Poundbury, and instead of finding "a feudal Disneyland," it seems to be "getting a lot of things right" with "a plan that far exceeds the sophistication achieved by any modern house builder."

•   Bevan cheers the makeover of London's Brutalist Salters' Hall, but is concerned about plans for the surroundings of this "stubby concrete keep" (those elevated walkways have got to go!).

•   H&deM beats a number of other notable names in the competition to design Berlin's Museum of the 20th Century.

•   Eyefuls of Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture's "amorphic, blob-like" OVO Wroclaw mixed-use complex in Poland that "establishes a new vision of urban living."

•   Brake takes a break in DLANDstudio's "tiny new" Sponge Park designed to absorb and filter storm water from "Brooklyn's most toxic waterway."

•   Moore takes a (marvelous!) deep dive into Soleri's Arcosanti, then and now, and "how one architect's utopian town inspired others to pursue change."

•   Eyefuls of Australia's 2016 AILA National Landscape Architecture Awards.

•   Eyefuls of the winning design in Van Alen's "festive Flatiron holiday installation contest" - and the runners-up, too.

•   Winners of the "Plan B: City Above the City" Competition hail from around the globe.
