Today’s News - Tuesday, January 17, 2017

•   A particularly Trumpian way to start Inauguration week: "Design as Protest" Day on January 20 will include workshops around the country - a "national brainstorming session for creative, place-based interventions that drive social change."

•   Hagberg Fisher offers "a primer on post-election design activism" to move "forward in an uneasy age."

•   Kamin "deconstructs" Trump Tower in Chicago, and "muses" on what it portends for his presidency: "Don't try to tell him what to do. Don't count on him to follow through on his promises."

•   Hawthorne explains why he's launching a weekly column on architecture: "Los Angeles is rediscovering its sense of civic ambition even as Trump seems ready to turn the country inward."

•   Architects deconstruct Trump's $25 billion wall along the Mexico-U.S. border, and why it "would be nearly impossible to build - there are better alternatives than constructing a wall."

•   Grabar parses Ben Carson's confirmation hearing on Capitol Hill: he "revealed he's barely interested in the mission of the department he's about to run," even though his written remarks "were full of insight and expertise. But it turned out most of the text had been copied from newspaper articles and think-tank reports" (plagiarism runs in the family?).

•   Perhaps Carson should look into Lyndon Goode Architects' infill housing development in south London: it demonstrates "how high-quality design and a successful planning outcome could be achieved on an affordable housing budget."

•   Bozikovic x 2: He cheers RDHA'a new Waterdown Library and Civic Centre in Hamilton, Canada: it "brings together an elegant metaphor and accessibility with a sense of place" ("Plus you can find books here").

•   He reports on Mayne's move to give Toronto another landmark with an expansion of OCAD University's "box on stilts" (by Alsop).

•   "Move over London - Manchester is on the rise" with OMA's Factory, a "massive glass cube" that will transform "an underused area into a world-class center for arts and culture."

•   A peek at Hadid's will that "will shed fresh light on her intentions about succession" - and what's to become of her £70 million fortune.
