I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

A closeup of the Richard Rogers building at 88 Wood Street.

I know it drives Prince Charles to distraction, but I love the new architecture in the City of London -- well, most of it. (I have not yet learned to appreciate the Gherkin.)

Lower Manhattan has some of the same mixture of towering office buildings set among small, hundreds of years old stone and brick structures, but there's very little that snags my eye there the way the cheeky buildings in the City do.
