Today’s News - Thursday, October 7, 2010

•   AECOM's NYC office is as flexible as its corporate style - and LEED Gold to boot.

•   It looks like Gehry's Ground Zero Arts Center might actually happen after all (with help from federal funds).

•   Kennicott on NYC's Park51 Islamic center: the design shows "a literally enlightened building...part of a sophisticated, international language of the global cool, technologically savvy, alert to history, but floating free across national and historical boundaries."

•   Q&A with Park51's architect: "I think the location of the center has been overexposed and overrated."

•   New design for the Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem may be "a welcome departure from Frank Gehry's 'tiresome' design" for some; not for others.

•   Litt on Cleveland's new vision for the downtown Mall: a great vision, but the current budget "won't buy much more than trees, turf and concrete."

•   Chipperfield's consolation prize for not winning the Stirling: a RIBA Gold Medal (though he's disappointed Rykwert was overlooked again).

•   Glancey cheers Chipperfield finally being recognized in his home country "where he has sometimes struggled to fit in."

•   We cheer an impressive list of Hon. RIBA's!

•   King on Gwathmey Siegel's new wing for the Crocker Art Museum: the "light is even and the sounds are soft," but "there's no promise of wonder."

•   Safdie steps into the spotlight, no longer "overshadowed by superstars": "an aggressive kind of architecture is not part of what I do."

•   Lifson has a lively conversation with Piano re: LACMA, his new Resnick Pavilion (and Gehry).

•   Pearman gives a thumbs-up to Theis + Khan's 22 Bateman's Row: it "shows what can happen when architects are in full control of every aspect of the process."

•   Q&A with "light artist" Schwendinger: How do you light smart growth? "My job is to remind people of the nighttime and say 'look at this as a canvas of darkness.'"

•   Why passive homes are often hard to find in the U.S. (but there are some in the pipeline).

•   2010 World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize goes to the "exemplary restoration" of "a little-known but iconic modern structure" in the Netherlands.

•   An impressive winners list for the Cityscape Awards for Architecture in the Emerging Markets.

•   Call for entries: SCUP Excellence in Planning, Landscape Architecture, and SCUP/AIA-CAE Excellence in Architecture.

•   We couldn't resist: in Las Vegas, CityCenter is dealing with the "Vdara death ray."
