    Even the very worst architect from the 1960's era wouldn't design anything so ugly.

    It looks like an insane asylum that they tried to add a little cheerfulness to.

    Any possibility that Gene Kaufman is color-blind? Oops... sorry... "prismatically challenged."

    Maybe but how do you explain Sam Chang signing off on them? Is he prismatically challenged as well?

    Here's another one from the deadly-duo that is going up as we speak:

    It looks like he's re-done his web site. A lot of the really hideous projects like the one posted below are now gone. I wonder if he's trying to distance himself from Chang?



    ^ We'll all miss this howler of a description:

    "The design provides separate visual identities to two differently flagged buildings that nonetheless form a pair with a major urban presence. Metaphorical development of the images of the king and queen chess pieces, with attendant implications of privacy, duality, and gender roles, informed the design concept"

    Some architectural disasters still remain though.

    Unfortunately the texts are no longer poetic, but he has coined a new term: the "Gotel":

    Gene Kaufman is, without peer, the worst working architect in New York City. Gene Kaufman's putrid designs will pollute the city landfscape for decades to come and will become textbook examples of the absolute worst in urban design. If this city had an architectural review board, Gene Kaufman buildings would be rejected outright.
