Gehry Speaks Out

In an October speech that Bruce Ratner opponents have just unearthed, architect Frank Gehry told a Columbia University audience that he had tried to convince the developer to scale down the Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn, to no avail. More recently, New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff suggested that the project may indeed be too big for the 76-year-old master—who has done a lot of buildings but never a minor city–to handle.
