Re: Re: yucky houses
It is possible to build a big house that fits into it’s surroundings or adds something through it’s proportion and elegance. Unfortunately the vast vast majority of the houses in question detract from their environments through graceless, clumsy planning and detailing. It is not enough to justify this by saying that if people can afford to build monstrosities they should be allowed to continue building them.
I’d like to think that people in the future will see them for what they are – ugly, inappropriate blots on the landscape – and will do their best to get rid of them.
