Fast Company ranks the 10 most creative people in architecture today and LA-based Thom Mayne squeezes in at number 8. At least we're representing. (Note to Nicholai Ouroussoff, Fast Company seems to agree with you since there isn't any NY-based architects or projects on the list). About Mayne: "Thom Mayne made his name with aggressive, hyper-angular buildings. But his designs show more range than that. Here's his sinuous design for the Phare Tower, set to rise above Paris's La Defense business district, with groundbreaking to begin in 2010."
