[Graham Gund House, Cambridge]  
  • visions come and go
    Gund's new vision looks a lot like his first. He didn't return a call yesterday. But according to records filed with the City of Cambridge, Gund has essentially decided he liked his original idea after all." (Steve Bailey, bg_00.01.05)

  • the old-fashioned way
    "Certainly Gund can afford his trial-and-error approach, having acquired his fortune the old-fashioned way - by inheriting it from dad, a Cleveland banker and industrialist. ..." (Steve Bailey, bg_00.01.05)

  • charitable
    "He has a split inside of himself ... He is the client and the architect. I would cut him considerable slack on this." (neighbor Swanee Hunt, the former ambassador to Vienna, in Steve Bailey, bg_00.01.05)

  • unbearable slack
    "OK, let's cut him some slack. Let's stipulate he's an excellent architect ... Send your ideas ..." (Steve Bailey, bg_00.01.05)


[Wall-less House, Karuizawa]
  • another opening, another show
    "Returning to Japan, Ban began his professional practice with a series of Case Study houses that gave so-called White architecture a Japanese twist. ... In the West, the term refers to unbuilt projects designed by architects like Hejduk, who hold themselves in such artistic high regard that they seldom deign to build. "

[SGI Amphitheater Technology Center, Mountain View, California]
  • tuning fork
    "Meanwhile, in Mountain View, another SGI campus is under construction ... glassy, rectilinear, and flexible enough to be leased out or sold, as economics dictates. These blocky structures are decidedly not interpretations of the 3-D fantasia inside SGI's computers. But they could reflect the firm's red-ink-laden 1998 balance sheet." (Karrie Jacobs, "... Gets Some Style," fortune_99.10.04)
