The New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman on why he's largely avoided writing about specific buildings: "[T]here should be any question about a focus on urbanism, equity, social justice, or infrastructural affairs or whatever that is not specifically about a building in isolation. [...] It’s not so much whether I’m writing about a building, it’s a question of how—whether it’s embedded within other issues or whether it’s about the craft, the formal qualities, how it fits in relation to other buildings being made now, and within the career of the architect or architects who designed it."
