Someone else's project

Not my project, but thoughts about another's project: Frank Gehry's brown paper bag at Ultimo in Sydney.

I'm not sure if I'm a 'fan' of Gehry's or not. Probably not, because I'd doubt that I'd be a 'fan' of any architect.

The building is impressive in some ways, with some of the emptiness of its impressiveness touched by Philip Drew in this review.

Just to note, I read Philip Drew's book Leaves of Iron; an essay on Glen Murcat's work. There were some nice touches in the book with its mentions of people, places and buildings that I knew well or had worked with, but I thought the writing pretentious and over-done. Drew's essay on Gehry much better, in my estimation.
