It was interesting to note the opinions concerning the design of Whitman College that you quoted in the Nov. 21 PAW (Editor’s letter). As a fairly frequent user of the Frank Gehry-designed Stata Center at MIT, I can certainly attest to the interesting and fun nature of the building. On the other hand, it’s difficult to imagine using it 50 or 100 years from now, while clearly Whitman has been designed for a truly long life. MIT’s response to the Stata building has been to sue Gehry for design flaws.
