Plurality and the Great American Way

New, 2 comments

Bernardo Fort-Brescia, architect of the Infinity, talked to the Chron yesterday about life, love, and architecture. Well, mostly just architecture: his decidedly nonconservative buildings are "well received" in "conservative" San Francisco, perhaps because of the texture they lend to the urban environment. But also, "American architecture is about plurality. We're not governed by a monarchy. This isn't Paris, where Napoleon III had Baron Haussmann design the entire city." [SFGate]
