That fresh-faced kid over at the Podhurst firm wrote a letter to the Herald:
How does that young man find the time?
The April 19 story Famous architect Frank Gehry feuding with Miami Beach over New World Symphony project omitted the role of the New World Symphony's leadership in contributing to this problem. Though I disagreed with a majority of the Miami Beach City Commission that voted to remove Gehry from this project, there is no question that the Symphony did not actively resist that decision, signaling that it had ``Gehry fatigue.''
In addition, the Symphony's mishandling of its dealings with Gehry and its mismanagement of the design and cost estimation of the garage project are significant contributing factors. The Symphony is a first-class cultural institution, but its leaders have used secretive and hardball political tactics on this issue.
