My Vote for Stupidest Architect in New York

This building at Canal and Houston has to be the dumbest thing I've ever seen, and there are a lot of dumb new buildings in downtown New York these days.

While walking home we passed by several other stupid glass monstrosities and the husband made an excellent point: "When it is time to take these disasters down, they can probably do it with a wrench and a glass crusher."

Ugh, where did those idiots get their architecture degree? that's awful! it looks like its choking the old building, the same way vines kill trees when they entangle themselves around them.

The one mix of old and new that I do like is on 8th avenue and 57th street, that one was well done, and it probably encouraged all the crap to come after.
