Today in Stadiums: Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder revealed that the team is planning on building a new stadium. Snyder says he asked architectural firms to design a retro look, reminiscent of the team's former home, Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium. [Bleacher Report]
Quote of the Day: "Let's hope that the building, whose opening exhibits include a show devoted to Ban's disaster-relief work, act as a goad, encouraging individuals and corporations to do more to address global problems, rather than a balm, making them feel that, by donating to the museum or buying a paper-tube vase designed by Ban from the gift shop, they have done enough." —Dana Goodyear on Shigeru Ban, Hon. FAIA, and the Aspen Art Museum. [The New Yorker]
