Nothing about Atlantic Yards at Gehry's Pratt appearance

Atlantic Yards Report

I couldn't get into the Frank Gehry appearance at the Pratt Institute November 10, but according to the Brooklyn Paper (Cheery Gehry not weary of theory), those of us interested in Atlantic Yards didn't miss much:

The world’s most-renowned living architect, Frank Gehry, stopped by Pratt University last week to impart some sage-like wisdom to students and never mentioned that his greatest failure, the Atlantic Yards development, was only blocks away.

...Appearing completely at ease, Gehry reminisced about his early days in the architecture business, long before he would design the Guggenheim Musuem at Bilbao, or the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

The students hung on Gehry’s every word, and laughed generously at his jokes.

Actually, it's the Pratt Institute, not University.
