Houston’s architects obviously don’t read poetry.

None of the corporate buildings, apartments and hotels that are being built now seems like something we will be proud of in 20 years’ time. This of course assumes that these buildings survive even 20 years in a city marked by the destruction of its architectural past. […]

But maybe we citizens can influence the builders. We can tell them how ugly their buildings are. We can refuse to rent space there. – houstonchronicle.com
