  • "Trump, His Gilded Taste, and Me"
    -- "Mr. Trump builds buildings. I write about them. So far, he hasn't given me an occasion to write glowingly about his architecture projects." (Herbert Muschamp, nyt_99.12.19)
  • "Brickell high-rise gets nod Project OK'd after 4-1 vote"
    -- "Still, the size of the project, which about doubles that of the Bristol Towers and Atlantis Condominium, is too much for some Atlantis residents. ... Robbins said his clients also are concerned that when complete, the new building would block a portion of the view at the famous cut-out cube in the center of Atlantis." (Charles Rabin, mh_99.12.19)


  • "Paul Andreu: An Airport Architect's Great Leap Forward"
    -- "Parisians above all have come to appreciate his work (without necessarily knowing his name) ..." (Alan Riding, nyt_99.12.19)

  • "For an Old Tower, a Fresh Identity as a Film Museum"
    -- "The tower known as the Mole Antonelliana dominates the skyline of the northern Italian city of Turin like a rococo rocket ship ready to take off." (Dave Kehr, nyt_99.12.19)


  • "Millennium Dome has British in a Y2K tizzy"
    -- "It has been the butt of jokes, a source of endless media speculation and a political headache for Prime Minister Tony Blair's Labor Party." (Mara D Bellaby, ap/cpi_99.12.15)   *** more


  • "Overdressed For Overkill: Vive La France!"
    -- "The LVMH Tower, home to cognac and Dior, opens with a whiff of grandeur." (Cathy Horyn, nyt_99.12.12)

    • "Christian de Portzamparc: Designing the Nouveau Building on the Block"
      -- "It could suggest a building being crushed on two sides, but instead it invokes some mighty crystal, say kryptonite, bursting from the forge." (Julie V Iovine, nyt_99.12.15)


  • "Not Catholic enough: LA cathedral runs into criticism for its design"
    -- "... critics who work within the religious community describing it as detached and aloof, more akin to a courthouse than a cathedral." (Louinn Lota, sac_99.12.12)
