ruminations about architecture and design

Tuesday, February 25, 2014


I did not have the opportunity to go inside this building yesterday. I can only speculate that it was as poorly designed as the District Court Building and the Registry of Deeds. I think that old buildings that have a lot of character but poor functionality are preserved because people focus on the difficulty associated with replicating the details. If it was built once, it can be built again, but what if there isn't a good reason to do that?

Are we at peak car? I predict that total vehicle production per year will peak at 110 million cars sometime around 2025. At this point in time, self-driving cars will be gaining market share.
