"Some may dismiss the Perry Street buildings for not being weird or cutting-edge enough. Compared with Mr. Gehry, Rem Koolhaas or Zaha Hadid, Mr. Meier is indeed a conservative architect...In the contemporary city, loft space has acquired a new set of meanings. The reuse of old factories by artists, galleries and the industries that support them epitomizes the current conversion of entire cities from manufacturing to cultural production. Mr. Meier's buildings are monuments to this transformation. The space has become the art."
