    It's funny how most people have seen renderings of this building for the past 6 or 7 years. I wonder how many people who see it for the first time once it is done don't even flinch? I feel like for...

    If they had preserved the five points there, that would have been ideal. How cool would it have been to walk into a 19th century ghetto right next to the financial center?" If they preserved that...

    Buildings like this are the reason it's so easy to get lost down there. It's a labyrinth wall, blocking off any semblance of a city. I think this neighborhood should be renamed little Fort Worth.

    In response to the Newark jabber. It's city status has improved of late. There's actually a nice little art scene developing there. Go there for the Portoguese festival. That's pretty fun. ...

    Narita Layover

    I've got to kill 12+ hours in Tokyo in two weeks. Does anyone have any tips for stuff to do within that time period? I was planning on taking the train to Tokyo, and then coming back early and...

    Some of my best memories of the World Fair Site are the many shoot outs I was involved in there while being pursued by the law.

    Good times. :rolleyes:

    Improving an Architectual Flop

    Hey, I didn't know where to ask this question, but do any of you know of someone who took a relatively mundane house (raised ranch, four square, etc.) and turned it into something redeemable? I'm...

    Love it. Beautiful, and it doesn't look expensive to reproduce either. There's not a lot of design out there that can be reproduced by the plebes.

    I don't know about this one. I think if you saw it from the right angle, it would look like a beachfront hotel.

    The theory behind it is interesting though.

    Yeah, I liked that too. I think they should do their best to make the colors vibrant, just like the drawing. I don't care if they even put down the fake grass they use in domes.

    Why are there Roman Legions marching around the base of it. Or they going to go toe to toe with the Visa-Goths or something?

    Jean Nouvel and Frank Gehry look like they're trying to start a miracle waterfront mile there. I'm sure somebody will sink a Kaufmann in there and that will be the end of that. :(

    We just don't do it as well anymore either. Look at the new stadiums. I like them both, but would I consider them adequate examples of their respective architecture: no. They're sterile and...
