Ada Louise Huxtable, the Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic who celebrated socially responsible buildings and excoriated designs she thought were loud or profit-driven, died on Monday in her native Manhattan at age 91. The Real Deal’s architecture critic remembered her here. The Real Deal looked at 10 New York City buildings that attracted Huxtable’s attention over her long career at the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. In the Times, Huxtable described New York as being like “no other city in time or place. Visitors and even natives rarely use the words urban character or environmental style, but that is what they are reacting to with awe in the presence of massed, concentrated, steel, stone, power and life.”
