'Starchitects' Gaining Clout With Developers
"So-called 'starchitects' have become too valuable now, as urban alchemists and as marketing vehicles, for developers to ignore. This is particularly true when those developers are relying on public approval and public opinion as is the case with Grand Avenue.
The fact that Gehry seems largely to have dictated the terms of these agreements only strengthens that impression. In each case, he's negotiated the architectural equivalent of final cut for a Hollywood director."
