Beauty in Economy

Some commentary on excesses of architecture from Canada's Globe and Mail.

I think it could do a better job clarifying the difference between iconic and moronic, but that is probably just me. Which is to say, there are well designed architectures of ego as well as poorly designed ones. It is just the poorly designed ones seem to be the ones more commonly built. Mostly because they are the flaming, spinning logos of the architecture world. Look great, but inefficient and not really designed for actual use.
