Quandary Resolution 1377
nimbus, lenticular, waterloo, hegira
When the economy turned sour in the 60's there was a hegira of architects from New York City northwards into New England and Ignatius Schwartz, already famous for his intensity, his shyness, and his nimbus of palest blond hair, was one of the most prominent to make the move, although after over forty years in New Haven and Hartford it looked as though he might finally have met his Waterloo in trying to find any acceptable way whatsoever of modifying the famous Phoenix Life Insurance Building - an elliptic lenticular cylinder, the world's first two-sided building.
