(*****) m o r e

Most etc.

[influence etc.]

  1. friends in high places
    -- Nigel Coates, 50, architect
    "Enfant terrible on the edge of turning into grand old man. Once a provocative tutor at the Architectural Association, where his students were failed by members of the old guard for not producing 'proper' architecture. His fantastic designs were called unbuildable, until some entrepreneurs in Japan went ahead and built them." (esm_99.12.21)

  2. eternal provocateur
    -- F Ron Arad, 48, designer
    "There's an idiom that goes, 'those who can't do, teach'. Ron Arad, then, is the exception." (esm_99.12.21)
