Recycle Buildings, not Ideas

Monday, September 29, 2008

Making lists is a time-honored September New York ritual as we all trash the beach reading and play serious catch-up as quickly as possible, reading back-to-back The New York Times’ The New Season feature on September 7 followed by New York magazine’s Fall Preview (Don’t be confused by cover dates, the Times’ Sunday edition came out one day ahead).

And now, to New York architecture critic Justin Davidon’s worthy and lengthy survey of new glass buildings across the city “Glass Stampede” (of which we read every word on a long flight recently), there is Nicolai Ouroussoff’s tossed-off and irresponsible “New York City, Tear Down These Walls”. Maybe the guy should be applying the principles of adaptive reuse to architecture rather than to his journalism.
