    you sound more upset about the NY critic being negative on your city than on the merits of its content.

    pardon? he wasn't negative on LA, just the building, and was hung up on silly things in my opinion. the comment you just quoted was a sarcastic joke, wherein i was basically agreeing with him. what you say above does not really make sense in relation to anything i've said.

    i think i mentioned this before, but there's a great interview with jeffrey inaba where he talks about the fact that architects can't even afford custom homes as playing in to the cold, conceptual luxury of contemporary design.

    could you link please, and cc me the link in PM. thanks.
    i would have my slaves do it but they are on holiday

    the sarcasm went over me, blatantly, as perhaps the rest of your comments as I interpreted them as hostility towards the reviewer. This may not have been your intention.

    those pictures reconfirmed my desire to visit Guadalajara, and it has nothing to do with the building

    Seriously. Nevermind the building. Just get me a lawn chair and binoculars.

    better half is admiring a new John Pawson book we picked up. Apparently I'm supposed to work for one of the banks over in London so she can work at that firm.

    Awesome. Its as if dudes forgot the Soviet Union collapsed. Although I guess in Belarus that's easy to do.

    It's probably because we're on a men's fashion forum.
