HAIF - Houston's original social media

Recommended Posts

Frank Lloyd Wright was quoted as having used profanity when expressing his opinion of the Shamrock Hilton (now long since demolished).  I didn't like that building either, but at least it had some interesting and over-the-top history associated with it.  The MemorialHermann Tower is way worse.  I see it every day from my balcony near Uptown and it annoys me every time.  It's an embarrassment to Houston.  

 

MetroNational has put up a bunch of ugly buildings in their big patch of land out there.  Makes me wonder if the family that owns it all has a child that they gave the design contracts to, without concern for aesthetics.
