    Morris was the Man.

    I particularly like his motto, which he came up with in response to Mies and Minimalism-

    Lapidus said-
    “Less is not More. More is More.”

    he is the man! i love this building, too — and his thoughts behind some of the crazy designs. Unfortunately, it was redone last year, and the new owners went the full douche: thumping music. purple stuff. too much black. it’s pretty craptastic.
