On Frank Gehry's New World Symphony in Miami:

"The new six-story, glass and stucco-clad building fits into its immediate neighborhood, not that the surrounding parking lots have much personality. And nothing shouts 'This way to the Gehry!'—although there are sculptural flourishes to be glimpsed on the structure's front and back, visible along a busy thoroughfare to the west and a now-closed side street to the east that passes directly in front....'I wanted to put the money into the interior because it's a teaching building. It wasn't anything precious,' said Mr. Gehry." [WSJ]
