Architecture and the Olds

New, 1 comment

Referencing a post at the Atlantic, UnBeige wonders aloud whether architecture is the "least ageist profession." The Atlantic, pondering Frank Gehry's ripe old age of 81, says he's not the "first great octogenarian of his profession. Listen to Philip Johnson in the early 1990s. I.M. Pei is still going strong at 83, Oscar Niemeyer (maybe a bit slower) at 102. And think of Frank Lloyd Wright (whom I discussed in an earlier post on retirement) and Buckminster Fuller." Hmm, there's a beard-stroker. [The Atlantic, via UnBeige]
