The purpose of this assignment is to encourage research and reading. Select two architectural critics from the list below. Find one article from each critic and write a brief, one paragraph, summary of each criticism. In an additional paragraph, compare/contrast and comment on the writing style and readability of the authors. Would you recommend them to a friend?

Please note the following:

A number of people have complained of the need to “subscribe” or “pay” for copies of online articles. In some cases that may be so, although I have found that:

  • Downloadable articles can often be acquired at no charge.
  • Some online subscriptions are free, especially to students.
  • Most of these newspapers and magazines are available for free through the USF Library system, or any public library.
  • Some of these newspapers and magazines are available for purchase at local newsstands, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc
