Today’s News - Wednesday, April 12, 2017

•   Wainwright weighs in on some of the proposed designs for Trump's border wall (with no small dose of sarcasm), "but they provide a fascinating window into the lurid anxieties of Middle America."

•   Hurst x 2 re: the Garden Bridge: he cheers an MP's report about "a project born of shady deal-making and arrogance" - the "political Rottweiler "is right to call out the powerful people behind the bridge."

•   He continues to cheer the "damning" Garden Bridge report - and Marks Barfield breaking "their silence about the tender process."

•   Jolliffe sees the Garden Bridge as a student project: "glorious ideas that would be truly magnificent when built if only reality didn't have to be factored in."

•   Hosey reports on a survey about "where architects stand on climate change": "if the survey reveals anything, it's that the profession's passion and information are out of sync."

•   L.A. voters defeating Measure S that would have curtailed new construction is "a very clear statement that they're interested in a different Los Angeles," sayeth Hawthorne.

•   King x 2: he reviews three new low-rise housing developments "packaged deftly by the architects," but "even the most nimble architect can do only so much."

•   He queries Pelli about whether "he'd rather pursue a precise elegance than tackle huge projects"; the answer: "a straightforward comment, free of the rhetoric that most other architects use to wrap themselves in an artistic mystique" ("I love the complex projects").

•   Florida x 2 most excellent excerpts from "The New Urban Crisis," the first tackling "winner-take-all urbanism."

•   He then tackles "the growing cleavage between superstar cities and those left behind" (both worth spending time with).

•   P+W transforms a 1980s suburban office building into Memorial Sloan Kettering Monmouth using "biophilic and other evidence-based design principles - based on a walk through the woods."

•   Eyefuls of the 8 AIA/ALA 2017 Library Building Awards winners (great presentation).

•   The RAIC 2017 Green Building Award goes to a LEED Platinum public library in suburban Montreal.

•   Eyefuls of the 200+ (!) winners of the 2017 A+Awards.

•   One we couldn't resist: Wall Street's "Charging Bull" sculptor sues "Fearless Girl" (never mind he installed his "bronze beast" in the dead of night without a permit - we'd like to use a less-polite term, but we'll just call it chutzpah - and hope he loses).

•   Call for entries: 2018 Vilcek Prizes for Creative Promise in Architecture: $50,000 each to 3 young immigrant professionals + Imagine London as a National Park City International Ideas Competition.
