Starchitect cat fight!

Time Out New York: High-profile buildings like yours make neighborhoods more desirable, and then developers cash in with schlockier designs. Do you worry about how your work might change the character of an area - the one going up near Prospect Park, for example?

Richard Meier: We'll have to see about that. The area around the park is pretty well built out, so I don't see how it could change that radically. The important thing is to build to a scale appropriate for the surroundings, which is what we're doing in Brooklyn. I mean, it's not like the Atlantic Yards!
