In the eye of the beholder

Going to work I pass this dustbowl building site which made me feel sad till the day some artists wrote on the building: There are artists all is well. That lifted my spirit, so I decided to try and find beauty in the destruction. Landmarks are important in a city, they are points of orientation, part of the myth of a city. Hopefully it will be replaced by something exceptional.

  1. Having taken a development class at the Graduate level I can tell you that if the new building doesn't pay for its self off in a short period of time it won't get built. Pretty isn't in the MBA's Lexicon and they do new buildings based on the return. Sometimes Governments make pretty buildings but for the most part they look like glass covered bldgs in the sky. MUD
