From an interview with Brad Cloepfil (warning: annoying Flash-based site), the Oregon architect responsible for the proposed redesign of 2 Columbus Circle in New York City as well as the new addition to the Seattle Art Museum, in last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, page 27:
“There’s a lot of design energy going into eyewear. I’m designing glasses for Amy Sacks, a company based in Portland.”
From an article on Terence Riley, architecture and design curator at the MOMA, in last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, page 37:
“It’s a character flaw of many architects that they try to express themselves through their eyewear. I strongly urge them to work on this.”
In other news, Kathy and I picked up our new glasses today. Pictures forthcoming.
