“When she took the position in 2007, she was the first female music director of a top-tier American orchestra. She was, it seemed certain then, the avatar of a new generation of women on important podiums. … But when she departs this summer, the field will go back to the way it was before she came: 25 major orchestras … with no female music directors.

Architect Will Self, 70; His Designs Were "A Little Insane"

A Falstaffian provocateur, Mr. Alsop believed that his visually spectacular projects brightened their landscapes, and that architects had a calling to inspire the public. “Lifting the spirit, whether you’re working in a building or walking past it every day, is the job of the architect,” he told CNN in 2005.

British Architect Will Alsop, Creator Of Avant Garde And Modernist Buildings, Has Died At 70

"Alsop, dismissed as a dreamer by some, was eternally optimistic about the potential of architecture. 'Architects are the only profession that actually deal in joy and delight,' he had said. 'All the others deal in doom and gloom.'"
