  • Acoustic Design

  • With all the praise given to the acoustical quality, the article really needs to tell us who was the sound engineer who designed the acoustics. Does anybody know? I remember that he was Japanese.

  • Criticism

  • This is of course a POV - but there are several news articles criticizing the design of it as (a) not tasteful (b) impractical and (c) looking like a messed up version of the Sydney opera house!

    • Just another version of the ugly Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and a giant version of the also ugly Weisman Art Museum and several other monstrosities Gehry has perpetuated on unwitting communities.

    • Well i got a new one here: Samuels, David (April 2008). "Shooting Britney". The Atlantic Monthly301 (3): p.46. "..., the core of the decayed downtown is wrapped around Frank Gehry's undulating, steel-clad concert hall, which looks like a giant steel-capped molar in a mouthful of rotting teeth.“



Self-study questions

We mentioned four functions for every wiki page. One was viewing the page. Without looking back, do you recall the others?

What are the three steps in editing a page?

Is a wiki a one-many medium?

Wikipedia is useful, but can you find other useful wikis on the Web? Which sites have you found to be effective?
