Today’s News - Wednesday, March 22, 2017

•   ArcSpace brings us eyefuls of AL_A's shimmering MAAT Museum in Lisbon that "embodies the desire to open up an international dialogue towards the city's creative scene."

•   Kennicott minces no words about what he thinks of Trump's proposed budget cuts: "It's not an attack on the arts, it's an attack on communities - perfectly calculated for a new era of rancor and resentment" that "will primarily affect people on the losing end of the American Dream."

•   Mock on Hip Hop Architecture, and how Ford is "building a movement to reclaim urban design from the failures of the 1970s," and "creating a new language for how traditional architects should approach urban livelihoods."

•   The Jamaican Institute of Architects College of Fellows pens an open letter to the prime minister re: an MOU with a Chinese construction company for a new Parliamentary complex that is "an insult to local professionals in the building industry."

•   About 12 hours later, the PM responds to local professionals, saying that "purposeful efforts will be made to include Jamaicans in the design and execution" of the new Parliamentary project.

•   Milman parses how Atlantic City and Miami Beach are dealing with rising sea levels: in both cities, "there's an equity issue at play. What links these places is the reluctance to abandon them."

•   Rogers Partners proposes a multi-purpose storm surge protection system for Houston and Galveston "that would serve as an icon for the region."

•   Wainwright rounds up projects in China's smaller cities that are going "wild for starchitecture, spawning a new generation of delirious plans" (one is "a lumpen collision of colossal cruise-liners"; another has a canopy-covered lake where "visitors can enjoy projected blue skies despite the smog").

•   Green takes a look at an American-style senior living facility in China, where "it's taboo to put your parents in a home - the idea seems to be if it doesn't seem typically Chinese, perhaps the stigma will be avoided."

•   Hurst & Waite offer a MIPIM round-up: "Brexit schmexit - it was good to witness the UK government shouting about architecture as a key area for export growth" (though a plethora of "dude fests set a jarring note," along with some bad-dude behavior).

•   The Osmania University Arts College in Hyderabad, India, is an "architectural marvel" to sooth the classicist soul.

•   A new survey by NCARB and AIA shows that professionals and the budding practitioners they oversee have very different opinions about getting a license.

•   Call for entries: Croydon Council/AJ Croydon iStreet open international competition to enhance Croydon's public realm + A New Larkin Building, Buffalo, NY.
