Behold, the zippy new sidewalk treatment in downtown Austin, Texas, outside a corporate parking lot that is empty much of the day. Since there will never be any human pedestrians here to liven up the scene, the zig-zag pavement will have to provide all the excitement. (I get a woody just looking at it.) Or perhaps this was an ironic joke by the closet intellectuals of Austin’s Department of Public Works. Of course, the joke’s on the people of Austin. I’m sure the grass will be well cared-for, too. Thanks and props to Judah Rice for nominating this humdinger!

Behold the new SanFrancisco Transit Hub fully loaded with “geek green” tech and LEED bullshit, as befits Internet Narcissism Central. It’s actually officially named the “Salesforce Transit Center” for the company that bought the naming rights (no advertising or PR niche can remain unoccupied!). The 5.5 acre “park” on the roof is a disaster-in-the-making (“green” more »

Yet another borg building? Why, of course. That is how museums of the newest “art” must be designed, as decreed by the hive-mind of the High Culture insiders.  They must be entirely and more »
