As sketch associated with housing deal near U suggests, each new building looks like any other.
What has happened to architectural creativity? Am I the only one who has noticed that almost every new apartment/condo complex being built looks exactly the same? Same with the new student housing in the April 25 newspaper (“Complex housing deal comes together near U”); remove the caption and it could be anywhere.
Sadly, the urban landscape’s new character looks like it’s going to be made up of cookie-cutter, boxy-rectangular, warehouse-style buildings, using the same design and materials, with no distinguishing features.
