press releases for gentrified developments are all like "this is a sympathetic update of a classic building in a timeless style with thoughtful yet bold additions to support a modern lifestyle" and then the attached picture looks like this:
we are in the era of architecture where designers are all over all the things they *can* do but aren't stopping to really think about what they *should* do

either that or they're taking direction from billionaires with appalling taste, who's to really say
just saying that there's a reason why New York's skyline still (despite 432 Park Avenue and the Hudson Yards trying hard to ruin it) has a level of majestic charm to it while London's skyline, which is much more modern, is a constant gamut of "what is that is that a phallus"
