I love this cartoon because it suggests so much to me about today’s new development urban housing market in the US
Ok, so the housing boom paid for the Starchitect’s premium for highrise luxury condos built in most of US urban housing markets resulting in one of the coolest periods of architecture since Art Decco.
Gwathmey, Meier, Gehry…
Here’s something I wrote about the Starchitect phenomenon way back in March 2006. Interestingly, the US housing market topped out a few months later.
The movement is long over.
Assuming much of anything gets building over the next several years, do we have generic 70 or 80’s style dull architecture to look forward to?
