    Hopefully this will hurt his reputation as a 'renowned' architect. The geniuses at MIT should know better than to get Gehry to do something for them next time. :mamoru:

    :rofl: I love that Simpsons episode where Gehry can't come up with a design for the springfield opera house and scrunches up his paper and throws it away, then sees the scrunch and is like 'Eureka'



    *then they use it as a prison

    i read something else about that, and that mit wouldn't use several parts of his design for cost reasons that would have prevented the leaking.

    also, the leaking is due to problems with drainage collection with an outdoor ampitheater which is next to the structure, not the structure itself.

    Sometimes thats the price you have to pay for creating something like that.
