Follow-Up Criticism at Metropolis Magazine

One of my biggest complaints with most architectural criticism and the evaluation of new buildings is that this happens when a building is brand-new, not a few years later when its users have lived with it and can, more fairly, judge its character.

Well, Christopher Hawthorne's recent article"Starchitect High"  for Metropolis fixes that: he evaluates L.A.'s controversial downtown High School # 9 after two years of use.  Very interesting.  More publications should follow this lead.
This photo, however, is borrowed from Dezeen where you can see more.  I include a link to Metropolis on-line, but the article seems only to be in the print version.  (How... retro.)  Yet Metropolis is one of the few actually interesting architectural mags.
