In general I am skeptical of any self-proclaimed architects of the last fifty or so years. Many of them tend to be irascible socialists, and it shows in their work. For example, a new architecture building was built for the University opposite of the Football stadium. Everyone I know has the same impression, it is garish, and the million dollar tiles on the exterior look like they will drop from the sky at any moment. The inside is bare concrete straight out of Cold War Romania. Here is a picture of an astutely designed set of benches outside our tuition, state, and federal tax supported University. I know I am proud, because I sure couldn’t have designed benches any better than that.
