Wednesday News Roundup: The Travel Edition

Many of us are preparing to go over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's (or someone else's) house for the holidays next week.  So this week's news stories are from places hither and yon some of you just might be headed to...D.C., Vegas and, yes, Dubai.

This first story is about a project that's still in the planning stage, but what a cool idea! The Washington Post has this story (and some cool pics) on the potential (and temporary) Diller, Scofodio and Renfro addition to the Hirshhorn Museum's original Gordon Bunshaft "donut"-shaped building. 

If you're headed to play some slots over the holidays (Hey...gotta pay for those gifts somehow, right?), you can check out the conglomeration of "starchitects" whose work is a part of the new (gala opening tonight) CityCenter complex on the Strip.  Vinoly and Liebeskind and Foster (and more), oh my?  LA Times critic Christopher Hawthorne explains how the parts don't necessarily add up to an impressive whole.

And, if you're going reaaaaaly far afield, you'll want to read this article on the bursting of Dubai's construction bubble.
