Santiago Calatrava has won the competition to design the United Arab Emirates Pavilion for the Dubai World Expo in 2020. Nine finalists submitted 11 concepts that were evaluated on three criteria: their expression of Expo’s theme, “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future,” whether the design was evocative of the UAE, and if a balance was struck between the country’s past and future. Calatrava’s design proposes a 15,000 square meter pavilion with exhibition areas, an auditorium, food and beverage outlets, and VIP lounges. The design is meant to evoke the wings of a falcon in flight, linking itself to the country’s history of falconry to emphasize the country’s present day goals of global connectedness.

Two sculptures—Obelisk by Alison and Peter Smithson and Columns by Álvaro Siza Vieira—have been re-erected in Shatwell, a "semi-derelict agricultural complex" located in rural England. The instatement of the monuments form a part of an evolving programme of installations which Drawing Matter, an organisation founded by Niall Hobhouse "that champions the process of architecture through collecting, archiving and commissioning," will use to explore the relationship between architecture, sculpture and landscape.

Ada Louise Huxtable once described him as “a poet who happens to be an architect.” Italian architect Aldo Rossi (3 May 1931 – 4 September 1997) was known for his drawings, urban theory, and for winning the Pritzker Prize in 1990. Rossi also directed the Venice Biennale in 1985 and 1986 - one of only two who have served as director twice.

New York's 1851 Landmark, the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava, Burns in Fire

16:00 - 2 May, 2016

The Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava, a New York landmark built in 1851 by Richard Upjohn, burned Sunday night in a fire after more than 700 parishioners celebrated Easter, reports NBC New York. Originally known as Trinity Chapel, the cathedral was created as satellite location for Trinity Church at Wall Street and Broadway in Lower Manhattan, also designed by Upjohn, after parishioners began to settle farther from the original location. The church was later joined by a Clergy House and the Trinity Chapel School in an ecclesiastical complex, but in 1943 the chapel and neighbors were sold to the Serbian Orthodox Church. The cathedral, stretching between 25th and 26th Street, was nearly 180 feet long, and had one of the largest hammerbeam roofs in the city. The New York Landmarks Conservancy partnered with the church for a 2002-03 restoration of the building's facade and roof. The four-alarm fire that was contained by Monday morning is under investigation as suspicious.
