Bloomberg archicritic James Russell is the latest to weigh in on the NYU expansion plan. Spoiler alert: he doesn't like it. "I look in vain for some kind of urban ensemble or architectural grace. Each proposed building looks shaped in isolation, driven by how much space can be crammed in.
For a while I thought these expressionless shapes were simply cartoon placeholders for real buildings that could be developed with a great deal more sensitivity." [Bloomberg]
