Going Cold on MoMA Buzz

Reduced to incoherent gibbering by wall-to-wall praise for the new MoMA, we're rather taken with Hilton Kramer's review of the place:

The first and gravest of our disappointments is with the ill-conceived architecture. Yoshio Taniguchi?s redesign has at every turn in its cold and elephantine structure the look and feel of a Japanese parody of the kind of American modernism that has itself long outlived its expiration date.
Ahhhh. Damn, that feels good.
