Dead Architects Never Die

Like the good-force protagonists in Star Wars (you KNOW this is going to be a great post), good architects never die: their building designs just keep getting built. Their glowing ghosts hang out, literally, over everything we in the business do. Shakespeare taught us that patricide is never rewarded, because the ghost creeps around your studio until you fess up to everyone for what you did.

Philip Johnson's building going up (probably). Enric Miralles's market is nearing completion (of course, his wife is a designer too, so this one is perhaps a bit unfair). And, of course, Le Corb has a building nearing completion. At this rate, we in the world of design and publications can just relax and stick to the greats of the last fifty years. New talent will show up later, after it's dead.
