Broad had bid a “New Los Angeles” with architectural
models all mud-pie as Gehry advises, the question was asked,
“where’s he gonna build it?” (he also proposed a “new” new economy based
on barter or smiles, something). The hobby of city planners, Burden’s
riposte, a work of genius, with reference to Lang, and the secret of
present-day automotive designers, Hot Wheels.
Burden left UCLA having established the connection between school
shootings and building takeovers, the Dickson Art Center (remodeled by
Richard Meier) is now under the sign of Broad.
