Continuing with Frank Gehry‘s worst start to a month in the last little bit, what with the Beekman Tower getting chopped in half and finding new leaks in Ontario, in a section of this interview with The Architects Newspaper, it looks like Gehry has finally come to terms with the “on hold” Atlantic Yards project never being finished:
The Corcoran Gallery in DC, the Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn — I don’t think it’s going to happen. There are projects underway that are being threatened, and may not be completed. That would be devastating to me. Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles is also on hold.
Though while he sounds pretty bummed about it, he did quickly mention thereafter that he is looking forward to this:
…now we’re working on the Louis Vuitton Foundation Museum in Paris, and that’s exciting. It’s a pretty big building, bigger than Disney Hall.
Let’s see that that one gets built, okay everyone? Don’t we already all feel bad enough for the guy?
