  • He’s a great thinker, a great man. He strikes me as the Studs Terkle of the Architecture world – bluecollar in nature, analytical & well-read to the core.
    I grouped him with two other current architects for a jury. He reviewed projects with wisdom, not current trends. He was also politicaly adroit, a skill learned from surviving in academia.
    He also looks remarkably like Dagwood Bumstead’s boss.
