Thank God the glass boxes are going away. Those buildings gave way to Dilbert cubicles inside and look alike cars. Talk about boring. And, whew! Now there's Frank Geary. with some personality instead of the brain dead Soviet Communist style severity that went the world over. May we never see the likes again. I hate this kind of "architecture"! It makes me want to drive a nail into my eyeball and run for the hills.
CPT12 Response:
Thank you for your email and  personal take on the merits of  Mid Century Modern architecture. It’s like they day, “ Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.”
With that said when it comes to architecture,  I personally  would prefer Louis Sullivan’ Wainwright Building over Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building.
To me, Geary is more about sculpture than useable space.
All the Best,
Joan
