What the hell…..?… Denver’s Hateful Eight

What the hell…..?… Denver’s Hateful Eight

 

If you’re reading this blog, we’re going to assume that you have an interest or background in design or architecture. If this is the case, you will probably react the way that we did to the writer Michael Paglia (Westword Magazine) and his insightful and hilarious article about the decline of Denver’s Architecture. We love seeing the cranes and the conversion to previously bare, trash covered lots blossoming into something inspired: a park perhaps? Affordable housing?…but why oh WHY are most of the new buildings so heinous and repulsive!!???!!! …..have all of the talented architects been body-snatched and whisked away to Planet Beautiful, or is EVERYONE in the Universe opting for El Cheap-o City?

Well if you happen to live with an architect like I do, you’ll hear an on-going critique of every building that you drive past, good or bad.  At this point I’m going to direct you to Michael’s article. If you don’t burst out laughing and spit your coffee across the keyboard when you read his pet names for each building, I’ll buy you another coffee.

Exhibit A: Baroque-a-cola
If Donald Trump were a building, he’d be Baroque-a-cola: It’s bombastic, pretentious, clumsy, tacky and absolutely over the top, just like he is.
