looks like gehry, then is liebskind. Which is right, you know non symetrical shells in aluminium condominimum. All these architects are brand names that culturally mobile cities attach to themselves to drown out the maddonalds, wendys, and burger kings, the palaces of the contemporary now. Doesn't matter that there is hardly anything to fill their awkward spaces. Inside out galleries, which act like las vegas casino signs, what matters is not that most art cannot hang with sloping loping galleries, but that the dumbos can see some big carbuncle of postmodernity in their stupid cities.
