Sad Goodbyes

The venerable architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable died yesterday at age 91 and the Times, which she joined in '63 as the first full-time archicritic at a U.S. newspaper, has a rundown of her career. Over on Curbed NY, there's a roundup some of Huxtable's best lines: "I, for one, am not in thrall to size; build very big and you can build very bad—and the very bad will be inescapable," she wrote about the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center in 2011.
