Architects Are More Necessary Than Ever
Technology can sometimes create the illusion that a building can be created without a creative hand, or without a creative idea behind it. That's not true at all, says the critic.
Paul Goldberger is the architecture critic for The New Yorker magazine, where he has written his "Sky Line" column since 1997. He also holds the Joseph Urban Chair in Design and Architecture at
The New School in New York City. He was formerly Dean of the Parsons
school of design, a division of The New School. He is the author of a number of books, including, "Why Architecture Matters" and "Up From Zero: Politics, Architecture and the Rebuilding of New York." In 1984, while working as architecture critic at the New York Times, he received the Pulitzer Prize for Distinguished Criticism.
