happy birthday frank

according to LAist, frank gehry turns 77 today. but with a new building at MIT, the grand ave project and the downtown brooklyn redevelopment project all in the works, he's not exactly slowing down. yet compared to niemeyer, he's just getting started. niemeyer was designing buildings when gehry was still in his short pants. what is it about architects and their shockingly strong longevity? do theyhave to hang on as long as they can because they dont start finding any acclaim until their already ready to collect social security? but I digree. happy birthday, frank!
