happenings in urban commentary

Great article by Nicolai Ouroussoff in the 9/10 NYT about a new architectural interest in urbanism. (I don't really think it's any new phenom but, hey, they have to sell papers.)

The 10th Venice Biennial of Architecture opened last weekend (Ricky Burdett, curator) and has a bunch of proposals for global cities.

New this fall: Rem Koolhaas book on Lagos.

Making the rounds (NY starting in January; Detroit in February) is a new exhibit curated by Philipp Oswalt called "Shrinking Cities." Includes disurbanist proposals by Moisei Ginzburg, Mikhail Barshch, FLW.

New this fall: Eyal Weisman book called "Hollow Land: the Architecture of Israeli Occupation."

Just needed a place to park this information.
