Entertaining the Culture Vultures

The latest and greatest object of public “pretend you know something” interest in Paris is work of Architecture (The Tour Phare) – not by the drama-queen with a fake name like Jean Nouvel, but by American Architect and Pritzker Prize winner Thom Maynes.

An insider's note on Maynes' Morphosis design firm speaks to a directness and unselfconciousness they've always had. They've succeeded with their clients and in the public realm by playing it straight, never putting on airs. and bringing an excitment back into the process. The Fuse is Lit (No Pasaran!)
