One was a review in June of an exhibit of creations by the architect Kevin Roche at the National Building Museum.</p></em><br /><br /><p> Assessing Roche&rsquo;s work, Kennicott wrote, &ldquo;In the end, Roche&rsquo;s reputation will rise or fall depending on what becomes of the corporate world he served. If the end of corporate America is a dystopian hell of environmental catastrophe, vast economic inequity and social instability, the corporate architects of our age will not be remembered fondly. But if our age yields to a better one, just as the tyrannies and kleptocracies of past centuries sometimes yielded (perhaps temporarily) to more enlightened, democratic societies, then Roche&rsquo;s work might have the charm of baroque palaces, Egyptian pyramids and Parisian avenues.&rdquo;</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/30335801/philip-kennicott-s-top-art-and-architecture-of-2011 Philip Kennicott’s top art and architecture of 2011 Alexander Walter 2011-12-09T13:34:00-05:00 >2013-04-17T19:45:36-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/fa/fad13a660a4d433b8c43415b68da69e9.jpg" width="514" height="337" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>It was a year without theme or focus, haunted by financial and political anxieties, but culturally diffuse.
