Was he at the races - I thought that was carson (QE5) reason behind men wearing hats in public!

good lord Jean Reno is hot - thanks for that morning wakeup, suture.

That pic of Thom Mayne looks to me like Yoda leaning forward on his cane with his hands crossed. But the hat - those of us old enough to have seen pics of Helmut Jahn in the '80s know that he sported a similar hat constantly....I googled it to post here last week but couldn't find any pics with the hat - looks like a Broadway musical cast member.

do you think any one of these people have seen this thread? kills me inside just thinking what they would say...

"i, daniel libeskind, do not look like that guy from something about marry! Chutzpa!"

maybe thom is sitting back going...

"an assassin. i can agree with that, what with my idiosyncracies and all. definately an assassin. i'll have to eliminate javier for the resurfacing of that photo."

i would also love to hear what they would say about other people. i bet eisenman would be laughing his ass off at the notion of "danny libeskind" looking like a poser architect.

well you know rem would love the comparisons to both nosferatu and steve howe.

not sure piano would get a warm fuzzy about the comparison to the fonz, however.

tschumi would probably get a charge out of the mr. rogers link. urbanism=neighbors. too bad i can't find a picture of him in a cardigan or keds.

I can't help but think that I've seen an Architect that looks like Richard Belzer. Man, he used to be one ubiquitous MoFo!

Does anyone else remember that the first title of Wig Nut and Wig Not is All those "separated at birth" gags are destined to become a poignant part of turn-of-the-millennium art history, or at least that's what fictitious fashion voyeur Dick Hertz said?

Javier Arbona,
Those two could've been separated @ birth. And you're right, Rick Ocasek was also one ubiquitous MoFo, too. But, I really was thinking of Richard Belzer. Funny how he's only had one TV role that still exists to this day. Plus, I don't recall him ever wearing anything but that black outfit, which works pretty good for that cat.

I meant that Richard Belzer looks like Ric Ocasek and they both resemble architects.

Javier,
I think you're onto something. Too many no-namers look like those two.
Ya know, if I lost about 80lbs & bought some big ugly black glasses, I could fit that role, too.
