A sampling of this week's hot gossip from The Gutter, Curbed's churlish architecture blog, just recently back from a very special all-day whiteout, newly sanitized for your reading pleasure...
1) Does SHoP's iconic Porter House in the Meatpacking District owe a certain debt of gratitude to a Berlin building? The investigation was just getting started when things kicked up a notch. From there, it was only a matter of time until the debate went totally gebäudeübung. Or something.
2) Hey, it's almost NYC architecture week! Yes, it's okay to cry.
3) At last, The Guttersniper is outed. Looking at the stars, indeed.
