Our friends at ResMusica report that Jean ouvel, the celebrated architect, has announced he’s staying away from his latest creation, the Philharmo ie de Paris, which opens tonight. He told Le Monde that the rushed opening and structural comporomises are an attack on his concept and a violation of his moral rights. The building, he says, is ‘premature’:

Ouvrir le programme de la Philharmonie de Paris sans ces espaces ne fait aucun sens et représente une atteinte à l’œuvre architecturale. A ce sujet, je ferai valoir  mon droit moral sur la conformité de l’œuvre, ainsi que sur d’autres points cruciaux, pour obtenir des finitions dignes des foyers et de la salle. /…/ Ce bâtiment est prématuré. »
