NEW YORK - After months of growing fainter and fainter, the giant titanium cloud that was to have been the Guggenheim Museum on the East River has dissipated completely, victim of the Guggenheim's financial straits and a weak economy. In a three-paragraph e-mail message, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation announced Monday that it had withdrawn its proposal to build a 400-foot-tall building designed by Frank Gehry on Piers 9, 13 and 14, south of the Brooklyn Bridge in Lower Manhattan.

Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, is sometimes upstaged by its neighbor, the uber glitzy Dubai, but that may be coming to an end as concerns about Dubai's debts grow. Abu Dhabi is expected to provide fiscal stability in the region, perhaps garnering more attention from tourists who prefer not worrying about the economic situation. And it can't hurt that Frommer's has named the city a top destination for 2010.

BILBAO, Spain -- Frank O. Gehry spent six years with a masterpiece in the making. He dreamed it and nurtured it, watching as it rose along a bend of a muddy river in this rust bucket of a faded industrial city.And now, he has to let it go.When the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao opens to the public Sunday, Gehry, a rumpled, 68-year-old prize-winning architect, will walk away from a building that some critics are hailing as one of the century's greatest."When I finish a project, it belongs to someone else," Gehry says.

For those following the Olympics, it's impossible to avoid images of Australia's most famous work of architecture, the Sydney Opera House. Whether it's serving as a backdrop for fireworks, finish line for the triathlon or logo for NBC cameras, Jorn Utzon's 1957 masterpiece has become a powerful symbol of the 2000 Games and Sydney's emergence as a world-class city. As Baltimore prepares a bid with Washington to play host to the 2012 Olympics, more than a few Marylanders may wonder if it, too, needs a signature building on the order of the opera house.

Rabbi Yitzhak Kadouri, a leader of the Kabbalah school of Jewish mystical thought who wielded great influence over Israeli politics, died Saturday of complications from pneumonia. He was believed to be at least 106. An estimated 200,000 people filled the streets of Jerusalem for his funeral Sunday, and he was eulogized by Israeli President Moshe Katsav. Rabbi Kadouri's appeal was mostly among Jews of Middle East origin and ultra-Orthodox Jews, but his words could move political mountains.

Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture, is leaving next month to become a partner in a private business venture.

`Hippodrome' will remain on theater's facade In response to Patricia Montley's comments on the Hippodrome Theater ("Hippodrome's history belongs on marquee," Opinion Commentary, July 31) I'd note that from the outset of the redevelopment project, the Baltimore Center for the Performing Arts (BCPA) and its partners recognized the value and consequence of the Hippodrome name. Baltimore's citizens with fond memories of the theater, preservationists and public officials share this view. No one involved in the redevelopment ever planned to ignore the Hippodrome name.

From the ancient temples of Greece to the undulating curves of the Guggenheim Bilbao, architecture is increasingly inspiring travelers on cultural vacations. Once banished to the back of the guidebooks, trophy buildings with great bone structure and the architects who designed them have become glittering stars in the world of pop culture. Vacationers are putting great buildings high on the must-see list. They are flocking to destination museums -- such as the Guggenheim in Bilbao, Spain; the Tate Modern in London; and the Getty in Los Angeles -- as much for the buildings themselves as for what's in them.
