And so indeed it has, albeit a slim one.” https://twitter.com/kimmelman/status/1243274610193444864 …

The architect and critic Michael Sorkin has died. I am heartbroken. This is a great loss. He was so many things. He was a supremely gifted, astute and acerbic writer. He wrote with moral force about big ideas and about the granular experience of life at the level of the street.1/

Damn. Architect and critic Michael Sorkin has died of COVID-19. Always loved this from him: “Fish are symmetrical but only until they wiggle. Our effort is to measure the space between the fish and the wiggle. This is the study of a lifetime.” https://t.co/v2XOk6SALb
