  • Comment

Disney chairman Michael Eisner gives us an interesting distinction in his autobiography: 'A client needs a lawyer and a patron needs a wheelchair,' he claims, perhaps trying to shake off his sobriquet of the Medici with Mouse Ears. 'I see us as collaborators, playing an active role in dialogue with the architect,' says Michael, as Gehry, Graves, Stern, Venturi, Tigerman et al have no doubt discovered. But even one of the world's most powerful corporate executives confesses, 'truly original architecture is at once beautiful and a little threatening'.
