    Nobody told Picasso which color blue paint to use, people didnt tell Maya Angelou to make her poems fit on a single index card to save paper, nobody asked Michelangelo to us clay instead of stone to...

    With the scale and volume (of customers) that they are dealing in, they need a warehouse, which is what the new MoMA is.

    In Flushing's case, the local politicians saw heavy white-flight out to long island, and the incoming replacement resident group was shaping up to be black & hispanic. Well, they didnt want that, so...

    For an element that is supposed to be graceful and delicate, those lattice columns sure do appear heavy, clunky, and dominate the space more than they should. Really awful interface with the ceiling...

    As predicted, they let the thing rot and rot for years, when the work was cheaper to do and smaller in scope. Now when they do get around to looking at it, they can go, "oh, to save it costs 5x as...
