Ugly Architecture and Ugly Product Design

Todd Lappin of Telstar Logistics on SF's new highrise at One Rincon:

No, the problem is the exterior curtain wall designed by architects at Chicago's Solomon Cordwell Buenz. The curtain wall achieves a remarkable effect: The more finished One Rincon gets, the less interesting the building becomes. [Link]
