    wow, is everyone copying DS+R shamelessly these days? first slow house, now this=lincoln centre

  • hugo

    this seems very unlike the usual style and grace of patkau. disappointing after their simple triumph in winnipeg.

    that aside, i am not sure it’s a DS+R referece either. the small similarities are not significant enough to label it a shameless copy. DS+R did not invent the cutaway, the truss or the curtain wall.

    try to be a bit more objective.

    agreed. the winnipeg library was completed far before lincoln center and ICA. if anything, DS+R copied patkau.

    What i don’t realize is in reality how you are now not really much more smartly-preferred than you may be right now. You are very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably in relation to this matter, produced me in my opinion imagine it from numerous varied angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it?s one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. Always deal with it up!
