Is it rats jumping from Bruce Ratner's (possibly) sinking ship called Atlantic Yards or something else? Noted landscape architect Laurie Olin has confirmed he is off the job: "We enjoyed a supportive and appreciative relationship with the owner/developer, the architects and the City of New York public officials.

(Translation: money troubles.) There are also implications that a certain architect named Frank might go (at least, in part) too. [AYR]
