Choicelessness

Plu Past Perfect

A quote from this article in the most recent New Yorker:

I have never seen anything quite like it: historical pastiche is common enough in country houses or museums, but it’s rare on the scale of a skyscraper.

-Paul Goldberger

The article is very friendly to the building and even mentions the bookmarking of marble slabs in the bathroom, reminding me of this picture of another famous bathroom I saw recently on flickr. Maybe I haven’t paid enough attention to Bob (as my Yale roommate calls him) Stern’s work. Or maybe, as the article suggests, I should be checking out Candela, Roth, or Carpenter (an MIT Grad, whoo!).

I just wish there were more interior shots!
