More Praise for Hearst Tower

This time Lord Foster gets it from his countryman, Deyan Sudjic, in this week’s Observer (UK).

Sudjic stakes out an interesting critical position:

In London he has become a ubiquitous, monochrome presence, dressing everything from Wembley stadium to the Asprey jewellery store in the uniform of self-confident corporate modernism, like a reliable machine. But in New York, where he still has something to prove, and is operating at the top of his game, he is unbeatable as a brilliant architectural innovator.
