An architect, on the Planning Department's affinity for pushing bay windows and stucco onto buildings: "It’s come to the point that we don’t even bother making our first few drafts look good, because we know the building will be scaled back by neighbors, community groups or committees. There’s no point in expending effort designing something when everyone else has their own priorities. This is something we’ve been dealing with for the past few years." [SFTOD, previously]
