    It is a sad story indeed but in the Atlantic Yards case we are talking about so much more than "some condos." In a perfect world, I would prefer the invocation of eminent domain to require the...

    David is a not a maverick but his buildings are never poor or distasteful. We can, at least, be sure that it will not be another Westin.

    I was referring to albarc's comments as regards "the case of Ratner/Gehry's Brooklyn project" and not "5th Avenue in the 40's." The problem is that sometimes no amount of money within the bounds...

    The problem is there will always be a holdout - more than likely backed by whatever interest group of the week is out with an axe to grind. This is where eminent domain comes to the rescue. It's not...

    Cool. Could just be white paint but it does make a difference.

    The Democrats are not the party whose ass they kiss but rather the party in which they hold real power - the party in which they have taken a seat at the table - the party which is open to their...

    Exactly so, - in fact, one could argue they are nearly the mirror opposites of themselves today.

    Thanks and yes - I think your point is also valid - one of Picasso's "things" was widely varied styles while Dali does make a better illustration of crap.

    Poor criticisms aside, I...

    Gehry and nearly (if not every) accomplished artist in history. That is why I keep saying (over and over) that this complaint makes for poor criticism. I did not address alonzo's, as you put it,...

    Again - Dude - if you can't take the heat - GET OUT of the kitchen

    OR

    just keep acting like a petulant child.

    I did not mean to imply that there is anything wrong with Barcelona or height. This building’s facade is just not speaking to me – sometimes hard to tell from mock ups and drawings though - so I say…...

    What is with everyone on this forum acting like developers and developer friendly mayors are bad guys. If you are such great lovers of architecture, why rant about deal making that results in the...

    If what you are saying is true then Ratner has, through whatever legal means at his disposal, got this thing locked up (unless he is willing or desires to walk away for some unknown reason). There is...

    Good question - I was wondering that myself though I don't think it's fair to suggest an architect "caves" when acting upon the client's wishes - this is a business, after all, and the customer is...

    I don't see how legal restrictions should have any bearing on one's desire to see a building built higher or in the expression of that sentiment on this forum. I think the Hearst Tower would...
