OMA amputates it’s New York office - see New York Times for the full article. Reading the article, you sense a fairly deep conflict with former OMANY’s director, JP-R He speaks of being a true collaborator and not being interested in authorship - yet wants to split from OMA to work under his own name.

BIG AND TALL

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

Skyscraperpage.com is basically another black hole of free time. Like Google Earth you’ll end up spending hours playing with the site - tracking new, existing, ugly, and enormous towers around the world. The site is incredibly comprehensive and allows you to sort by city, country, date of completion, size, architect, etc.

“The Scottish Parliament building at Holyrood has been declared the winner of one of the most prestigious architecture awards in the world. The tenth anniversary RIBA Stirling Prize Award was presented to representatives from the joint architecture partnership which designed the building, EMBT/RMJM, at an official awards ceremony in the Museum of Scotland on Saturday. After the event, Presiding Officer George Reid said: “The Stirling Prize confirms the Scottish Parliament as Britain’s most important new building. The judges have decided that Holyrood is not just a working legislature but a work of art.” It is the first time in the award’s ten year history that a building in Scotland has won the prize.”

Open House London

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

London’s Open House will take place this Saturday and Sunday (17th & 18th) and is a great opportunity to see buildings and spaces normally closed to the public. The full list of buildings can be found here and some may need to be pre-booked as they tend to fill up really quickly. Every year the Bank of England queue’s tend to wind around several blocks - and I remember when Foster’s Swiss Re building had an open house it drew a crowd of thousands.
