Karl Fischer Explains Himself

New, 10 comments

We're not going to claim to be the biggest fans of Karl Fischer. Or modest fans. Or well wishers (just kidding!). No matter what you think of the guys work, it's fairly obvious to anyone familiar with the L train that he has left his mark on Williamsburg. In the piece, Karl seems to come off as the Dr. Suess of North Brooklyn, "Mr. Fischer sees his buildings, with their mix of cylindrical, sloped and boxy portions, as being more whimsical. “I like to create a lot of interest in the facade,” said Mr. Fischer, adding that with 20 Bayard, “you can see a lot of fantasy at the top. It was kind of fun to do.” Do you guys think that getting the Lorax as the doorman would bring that fantasy down to the lobby?
