"I love it. It goes very well with the Design District's historic character (i.e. the majority of buildings before it became an architectural freak show). Specifically, I'm referring to the Buena Vista East Historic District, but most Upper East Side neighborhoods apply as well. Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean Revival architecture are South Florida's quintessential styles. Streamline Moderne follows for more specific locations like Miami Beach, and MiMo is basically localized Googie architecture. Most the starchitect buildings attempt to appear hip out of absurdity, and most certainly do not fit the "needs of actual people." It makes me more angry they're being built, considering the buildings won't survive fifty years. Does someone still believe in modernism? What a joke..."—Top of the Columbus [Rather Nice Neoclassical Building Coming to the Design District]
