Some quickie bits of architecture all together, so we don’t have to feel quite so bad inundating you with all this slew of building stuff this week (what can we say, sometimes it just pours architecture stories). First up comes an interview with Richard Meier by the International Herlad Tribune about his flashy new Meier on Rothschild building in Tel Aviv. It’s interesting, if just for watching the startchitect starting to get really into green building. Second comes the news that things have evened out with Norman Foster‘s karma, following his taking over Zaha Hadid‘s gig in Australia, as he’s just lost the contract to build Paris’ second tallest structure to Jean Nouvel. It’s the Signal Tower in La Defense (which sounds sexy only because it’s semi-written in half-French) and it will be “just short of the Eiffel Tower.” There’s not a lot of details about that building, other than it will also be green, but we figured you’d want to know right away, so that you can keep your eyes out for further details.
