  1. Nobody driving by will ever notice this building. No character at all. Sad.
  2. It's nice, but not a huge fan. If it's not much different looking than an office building, to me, there is something wrong.
  3. I like this plan. These buildings are more beautiful and it seems to me the materials are easier to maintain and age better than modern materials. This architectural style has lasted thousands of years. What are some everyone’s favorite non-classical federal buildings? The original article by Architectural Record is worthy of a read, since it makes helpful clarifications not told by the headline and gives the philosophy of the mandate. https://www.architecturalrecord.com/articles/14466-will-the-white-house-order-new-federal-architecture-to-be-classical
  4. Thoughts? “Donald Trump wants to “make federal buildings beautiful again” by mandating a return to “the classical architectural style”, according to a draft executive order obtained by Architectural Record on Tuesday.” https://amp.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/feb/04/trump-federal-buildings-beautiful-classical-order
  5. The architecture and design for Houston is actually becoming consistently good, imo. At least it's trending in the right direction. This looks very good.
  6. Just wow. These designs rank among the top for Houston architecture.
  7. Easily the most iconic tower on Post Oak after Williams Tower. One of the greatest additions to the city in my opinion.
  8. I can't believe all this exists already. You'd never know driving down the freeway.
  9. Developers to Present Final Design for Providence Skyscraper http://www.ctbuh.org/news/developers-to-present-final-design-for-providence-skyscraper/
  10. I think that some people's utopian idea of urbanism is one without cars. I'm not saying you want this utopia, so please pardon me if I implied it. But this design is essentially car-less, unless one counts the presumed parking garages we think might be below. What assumptions am I making that do not make sense? I've never been to an urban place without streets. Usually the more streets, the more urban. This place has a ring around it, which to me gives the feel of a faux-urban suburban development like Market Street in The Woodlands. Sure, it's pedestrian friendly once
