Guardian Lays Into Grand Ave.

By Eric Richardson

The Guardian takes a thoroughly English swipe at Downtown today. Dan Glaister's piece, "Downtown Looks Up," is full of juicy bits like:

As it stands, Grand Avenue is not one of the great avenues of the world. Home to Frank Gehry's unremittingly hostile Disney Concert Hall - a chunk of Italian futurist fascism to make Boccioni blush - the dullard Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the more palatable Museum of Contemporary Art, it might correctly be described as the core of the current incarnation of downtown.

I don't know that I particularly agree with his assertions, but I do love that British wit.
