"What sets [Enrique] Norten apart from expressionist-modernists such as Gehry and Libeskind is that his buildings derive their character less from their shapes than from the way they are built...His buildings are characterized by their architectural rigor, technical refinement, and sense of coherence...If Norten were a jazz musician, he would be Quincy Jones, not Miles Davis--a multifaceted impresario rather than a self-absorbed loner...He has always eschewed the development of a signature style, preferring to be a problem-solver and a builder.
