The Landmarks Destruction Commission

New, 1 comment

Today's New York Observer piece on Rem Koolhaas sheds light on the Prada-wearing Dutch architect's total bored-to-tears attitude about new architecture in NYC. Also, he's sick of preservation for preservation's sake. "I think that preservation has become a default position," he said. "If you don't know what to do, preserve it. Bureaucrats and planners are suffering, because they don't know what else to do. That is where some kind of charter of destruction is needed." [NYO]
