Well,looks like we have a disgruntled member of the city's ARB weighing in on the new Stanford housing. everyone has an opinion. Of course given the track record of our ARB, I would not talk but...
Anyway, was this design up for review by the ARB? What was Mr Solnick's opinion then? Maybe Stanford knew that if they proposed anything "radical" the usual suspects would be out in force complaining. Also, considering the way the ARB nitpicks apart projects and makes ridiculous suggestions, maybe Stanford decided to avoid that headache also.
Seems to me that the when an architect cannot produce anything worthwhile himself, he sits on a review board and gets his "revenge" by tearing apart other's work.
