Frank Gerhy Reveals His latest errr "Building'

Blogger Pasilalinic-Sympathetic Compass assesment of Gehry's design.

Blogger Pasilalinic-Sympathetic Compass has posted a lengthy and compelling indictment not just of the new design for the Atlantic Yards project's phase one by Bruce Ratner's architect Frank Gehry, but of Gehry's work in general. Makes sense to us. It's well worth reading to put the starchitect's latest sculpture in context:

Pasilalinic-Sympathetic Compass is bomb(er)? BS1? as I commented on the blog:
Like Abstract art, once the 'joke' gets old, or the 'novelty' wears off, what' you're left with is an eyesore.
How anyone can think of building such expensive, quickly dated funtion-less buildings in an age of expsensive oil and environemental concerns is beyond me...oh did I mention security? Apparently, post 9-11 that's not a concern.

Yeah, more wavy superfluous titanium and steel and glass buildings, just what we need in this post 9/11, $120.00 a barrel of oil world. But hey, what does Ratner care, he's not paying for it.
