A rare voice of optimism in architecture
Mr. Kushner’s talk on architecture is ambitious in scope and scale, and yet entirely accessible. His description of the reception of Frank Gehry’s Bilbao Museum – “[This was] a rare moment when critics, academics and general public were completely united” – could easily be applied to his talk as well. For architects, he lets architecture be less precious and yet still dignified; for the rest of us, he gives us words for why architecture, ‘the longest art’, has such emotional immediacy. A great talk for anyone (and lots of delicious pictures to boot).
