Cleaning up Xanadu

Five out of five critics agree: Xanadu is ugly. So how to fix up the stalled and hideous entertainment complex? The Times asked a panel of folks, including New Yorker archicritic Paul Goldberger, FXFowle architect Guy Geier, and urban design consultant Brian McGrath. Their suggestions range from making it solar-powered and transparent (Geier) to making it even more garish (Goldberger), with "more lights than Times Square." [NYT; previously]
