Today’s News - Tuesday, November 15, 2016

•   A sad and disturbing news day: We are so saddened by the passing of Diana Balmori, the landscape architect known for "designing spaces that interface with architecture."

•   Who hasn't weighed in on the AIA's initial statement of support for Trump, and its (two!) apologies after "days of withering criticism" to the "AIA's tone-deaf response."

•   Evitts Dickinson digs into the (sort of) details of Trump's infrastructure plans: it "relies heavily on private companies" and would be paid for by workers' income taxes and user fees - critics respond (it doesn't bode well).

•   Budds offers a shortlist of Trump's "trail of bad deals and banal buildings," and how "he has consistently disrespected the architecture profession" (groan).

•   On to brighter news: NBC called architecture majors "useless" - and "the Internet fired back": "it is worth pointing out that NBC's shortlist belies a substantially more positive statistic."

•   The 82-year-old Indian architect Raj Rewal reflects on the demolition of his pavilions on New Delhi's trade fair grounds, and talks about why "cities need design-literate people at the helm, not just politicians and lawyers."

•   Q&A with Singapore-based architect Chua, "the man behind North Korea's next generation of architects," inspiring "an eclectic mix of building styles that would have been inconceivable a decade ago."

•   Lynch parses Kéré's proposed masterful master plan for Burkina Faso's new parliament building that he hopes will "help his country heal."

•   London's Royal College of Art taps H&deM to make its Battersea South campus "to become a more STEAM-focused university."

•   Five stellar teams headed to Arkansas hoping to win over the jury deciding who will design the renovation and expansion of the Arkansas Arts Center.

•   King cheers Handel's Rowan building: "At a time when too many new buildings look as though they were packaged rather than designed," this "addition to San Francisco's Potrero Avenue is positively refreshing."

•   Brownell cheers Michael Green's wood building in Minneapolis: T3 "will be the largest mass timber building in the U.S. (although other tall-timber projects are on its heels)."

•   Korody's great three-part Q&A with Denise Scott Brown re: "learning from 'Learning from Las Vegas.'"

•   We cheer the 2016 Curbed Groundbreakers who are "out to change the world" (great profiles!).

•   Eyefuls of the 2016 New Zealand Architecture Award winners - all 27 of 'em.

•   Gunts and Russiello parse this year's crop of newly-named National Historic Landmarks - including a "Vonnegut (yes, Vonnegut)" - who knew?
