“The whole getup is like something drawn from the mind of a six-year-old girl: a train wreck of colors and jewels and every gaudy thing you can imagine. The only thing missing is a pink pony, and he probably has one of those on order. Flat-out bonkers. Maybe someone slipped something into his manna.”
Mark Lamster is the architecture critic of the Dallas Morning News, a professor in the architecture school at the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Harvard Loeb Fellow.
