Exit133 is about Tacoma
Imagine Tacoma - Tear It Down! Part 1
The New York Times last week asked its readers whether there are buildings so unattractive, out-of-context, inappropriately situated or just ungainly that they should be demolished? Nicolai Ouroussoff’s provocative article then goes on to list his personal choices in New York City. Read it. I recommend it.
Imagine Tacoma asks “So which building would you knock down in Tacoma and why?” Using Ouroussoff’s guidelines for consideration – not mere aesthetics, a building must either exhibit a total disregard for their surrounding context or destroy a beloved vista – and removing them would make room for new imaginative possibilities.
My selection has been deposited in a sealed manila envelope and delivered to Exit133 for publication next week.
So – which building do you want brought down and what’s your justification for such a selection?
