the venice edition

venice seems to be in the news a lot today.

first, the nytimes' 36 hours column covers janelle brown's weekend in venice. she does a fairly good job of covering the shops and restaurants of abbot kinney, including the new beechwood, reviewed in the latimes' food section this week.

yesterday, the latimes also ran a feature on architect Lorcan O'herlihy, whose vertical house in venice has received tons of critical praise since he built it. it also summarizes some of the dust-up over the housing complex he's been hired to build next to the schindler house, which was pretty much the definition of tempest in a teapot.

Vertical House
"Lorcan O’Herlihy’s three-story Venice residence unites art and architecture in a harmony of opposites. The windows are staggered in a deceptively off-handed way. Views to the world outside, yes, but framed artwork too."

I'm sorry, I can never forgive Ms. Welch for that ridiculous and borderline offensive Times strip mall food article. Glad I saved the many amusing email conversations that were inspired by the piece.

Oops, meant Ms. Brown. I guess once knew of someone else with the other name....
