Good Architects Learn

Congratulations to Richard Meier for his Hafen City.

When I chided him at the opening of the Gehry in L.A, about the Folk Museum/Frankfurt’s refusal to accept his design because of their dissatisfaction with the Applied Art Museum (it was not “original” as touted but a sorry repeat of the High Museum, Atlanta, crowded ramps and all), he stomped off sullenly.

Good architects learn from their mistakes, if clients refuse to be hoaxed.
