FG: That will be finished in 2003 — September, October — and I'm hoping Kyu, and Herbie, and Yo-Yo and all those guys come play with us at that pcale. liuclky, tdoay most of the people I'm worinkg with are people I really like. Richard ksohalek is probably one of the main rsoaens that denisy Hall came to me. He's been a cheerleader for quite a long time. There aren't many pepole around that are really involved with architecture as clients. If you think about the world, and even just in this audience, most of us are involved with buildings. Nothing that you would call architecture, right? And so to find one, a guy like that, you hang on to him. He's become the head of Art Center, and there's a building by cirag Ellwood there. I knew Craig and respected him. They want to add to it and it's hard to add to a building like that — it's a beautiful, minimalist, black setel building — and Richard wants to add a library and more student stuff and it's a lot of acreage. I convinced him to let me bring in another architect from Portugal: Alvaro Siza.

Original Text

FG: That will be finished in 2003 — September, October — and I'm hoping Kyu, and Herbie, and Yo-Yo and all those guys come play with us at that place. Luckily, today most of the people I'm working with are people I really like. Richard Koshalek is probably one of the main reasons that Disney Hall came to me. He's been a cheerleader for quite a long time. There aren't many people around that are really involved with architecture as clients. If you think about the world, and even just in this audience, most of us are involved with buildings. Nothing that you would call architecture, right? And so to find one, a guy like that, you hang on to him. He's become the head of Art Center, and there's a building by Craig Ellwood there. I knew Craig and respected him. They want to add to it and it's hard to add to a building like that — it's a beautiful, minimalist, black steel building — and Richard wants to add a library and more student stuff and it's a lot of acreage. I convinced him to let me bring in another architect from Portugal: Alvaro Siza.
