Showley, Roger M. "The beautiful and the bad." San Diego Union-Tribune (November 18, 2006): Local section

Abstract: "Orchids and Onions, San Diego's 30-year-old program promoting the best and dissing the bad in local architecture, returned after a three-year break last night, with top honors going to the Calit2 Building at UCSD and worst-of-show dishonors showered on a proposed expansion of the architecturally renowned Salk Institute."
