humanitarianism at the cooper-hewitt

I haven't had a chance to see this show yet at the Cooper-Hewitt, but Christopher Hawthorne (who, by the way, is consistently besting his counterpart at the New York Times as an effective architectural critic) has a piece in the LA Times on the exhibit "Design for the Other 90%." It's a short review, but Hawthorne manages to get his point across - along with some quick barbs at Koolhaas and Hadid, which I, of course, could not help but enjoy.
I've been traveling but should be back with some new posts in the coming weeks. Until then -
