Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff reviews the new Times HQ: "The tower’s crown is also disappointing. To hide the rooftop’s mechanical equipment and create the impression that the tower is dissolving into the sky, Mr. Piano extended the screens a full six stories past the top of the building’s frame. Yet the effect is ragged and unfinished. Rather than gathering momentum as it rises, the tower seems to fizzle." And yet, it's a rave. Ouroussoff, you sly little devil. [NYT]
