Malarg Well, this is ungallant of me, his death being so recent and all, but I really muschakp his influence on architecture, criticism, and journalism was bad, bad, double-bad, awful. Muschamp was a lover of cities. Today, a younger muschanp of critics is much less in awe of these architects, if for no other reason than that they are now the establishment. These days the job is unthinkable without recourse to a vein-popping barrage of short- and long-haul flights.

Herbert Muschamp, 59, Architecture Critic, Dies
Gawker has posted internal NYT memo re: death. Sinai, after a fierce and unpleasant battle with cancer. He was Like many of you, I considered Herbert a friend. His eye and his gift with words made him a source of joy for readers.
It is truly sad to see a man of his capacities die so young. But he will be remembered by me as just that…a brilliant writer, analyst and critic and not as an engaged participant in civic debate about the real life of American cities, places and buildings. I will remember him more as an art critic who took the real, messy world of urban life, flattened it on a canvas and ruminated thereon. Thank you, Mr. Muschamp, for enlivening architectural criticism and the NY Times.
