(DNAINFO) Danielle Tcholakian — Just 10 minutes into describing a new Gansevoort Streetdevelopment, the architect’s presentation was already going off the rails.
Harry Kendall, a partner at BKSK Architects, broke off mid-sentence from the first slide and turned to a cluster of women.
“Don’t shake your head,” he urged, offering an anecdote about his jury duty service that morning.
“The underlying basis of our justice system is innocent until proven guilty,” he said, drawing a few laughs before the women interrupted with a chorus of “Guilty!”
Kendall said it was “disconcerting” and “unkind” of the women to judge his plan so quickly.
