The Daily Telegraph (UK) does a punch up piece on the biggest makeover in LA not involving botox: Downtown's new look thanks to brash architectural visionaries (did we really say that?) Thomas Mayne, Frank Gehry, and Rafael Moneo. SCI-Arc is given proper credit for being the cultural ground zero of the starchitect trend. OF course, being recognized by the Brits is an honor, but that appearance of Disney Hall on The Simpsons is still unbeatable in our opinion.
