Would you go up in a giant toilet cleaning brush to look at this wasteland of shitty Modernist boxes, surface parking, and auto emissions? The conceits of contemporary architecture are so far off the rails of what the human race needs that the profession may be beyond redemption. Below, check out the Brave New World androidal interior of this monstrosity. Are you having fun yet?

The PR for this describes it as “mixed use.” I suppose you could also call it “pedestrian friendly.”
