Crime of the Week

This building is just that: building, not architecture. And building of the cheapest possible conception, design, and construction. A street crime on a par with strong-arm robbery, or perhaps worse. since it is being perpetrated not just once but continually for the forseeable future.

A few 2x8s have been glued to the exterior to mimic "style," while the tenants are protected from home invasion by bars on the flimsy pre-fab aluminium windows.

Until we start expecting—or demanding—more from our buildings, developers and landlords will continue to throw up criminal structures such as this. A city that permits buildings like this is equally guilty, perhaps more so.
