  1. We are in an election year and recession so it's kind of interesting people want huge projects built with these horrible fundamentals lols...
  2. Just because it's "standard" government abuse does not necessarily make it right lol...
  3. Sounds like the contractor charging thousands of dollars to fix a pothole is your problem and not the actual overpass lol... People actually use streets and highways. It's funny how upset people get when things don't fit their narrative. Btw, as a Houston resident and person who pays taxes, why shouldn't people be allowed to use it as a cut through? You make it sound illegal. People treat it like a on/off ramp because that is what is it. So if everywhere becomes a "neighborhood street", how exactly would you even move smoothly through Houston? Through our non-existent s
  4. This project would have been a disaster, amazing how fast things can pass without public input when they benefit very wealthy homeowners in a two block radius. You don't think that new park would have been more expensive to maintain than a basic overpass that survived 60 years without maintenance btw?
  5. Agreed, I think it's really beautiful architecturally and historically. Why does everyone want ever building to look the same?
  6. I think people forget that the centerpiece of the MFAH is the Mies Van der Rohe building and anything built around it needs to converse with it and be harmonious. Almost all the buildings you posted are the center pieces of new urban renewal districts or major real estate projects. I personally think the museum should have opened a concept like PS1 by Moma/Tate Modern in a part of the city that needs revitalization or an attraction. Something iconic on the bayou or east end. I think the museum's main campus is already so large and over whelming it would have been nice to have two sites.
  7. Omg, would be amazing if they built this. I just bought a small lot down the street. It's so empty right now.
  8. Random question but does anyone know why none of the bike trails having lighting? The city wants people to be able to commute on them but some of them don't feel so safe after sunset (which can be at early at 5-6 during winter).
  9. Yeah it's always in the top 3 performing in the entire company. Crazy anyone would propose trading a Nieman Marcus for a Dillards lol...
  10. Actually the government encouraged the invasion as well as the invasion of the SAMBIL mall they expropriated a few blocks away.
  11. I think the grand arch building in La Defense aligned with the Arc de Triomphe is pretty "iconic" in my opinion. Besides a few buildings in NYC and maybe Sears Tower, no building/skyline in the US is so probably instantly recognizable to most people with interest in architecture.
  12. During the input process from the community parking was a big issue, especially since it will have a public library in it.
  13. I think it looks elegant and clean, I don't think their target demographic is looking for "piazzazz" outside their apartment.
  14. I love Van LeeuWen, it's everywhere in NYC, they have a really good pistachio flavor... Their shops generally have really nice designs
  15. Existing traffic patterns being the pattern of having no traffic at all lol...
