Well, we asked for it, when we wished Philip Nobel‘s teeny-tiny sliver of a criticism about the National Design Awards was more of a full-court-press attack. And now, we got it. But this time, Noble’s taking on architecture. And starchitects. And certain star architects. Bad buildings. Good coverage. Critics. Design mags. Photo editors. (Did we miss anyone in there?)
Just like we do about this time, we go looking for the real story in the comments of the article. Because where can one find better entertainment than in the babblings of architectural hangers-on, ready to defend their spiky glass buildings at whatever cost? But guess what–these Metropolis.com readers are insightful, well-read, funny, and…in overwhelming agreement.
Did Nobel just start a revolution?
