The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is suing architect Frank Gehry, claiming that the architect ignored warnings about flaws in his design of the Stata Center. I suppose this will come down to the question of whether it was Gehry’s responsibility to make the building work or the engineer’s who implemented his design.
“The school alleges the center, completed in spring 2004, has persistent leaks, drainage problems and mold growing on its brick exterior. It says accumulations of snow and ice have fallen dangerously from window boxes and other areas of its roofs, blocking emergency exits and causing damage.”
