— Bit of architectish bitchery in the New York magazine story, Peter Marino: The Leather Daddy of Luxury. He’s talking, of course, about Koolhaas (and OMA)’s Prada store in New York, and makes me realize I’ve always been a bit baffled by it. Glorious space for artworks (on the top level, at least), but the poky downstairs is hardly conducive to actually trying on clothes (or, I imagine, shelling out wads of cash, if Prada’s your thing.) Good piece.

"Where are the clothes? And by the way, has Rem Koolhaas ever been asked to design another store?"
