A Big Brick Box

What you have here is a big brick box under construction next to a small brick box, this is what has become of architecture in Saratoga Springs.

I'm pretty sure this is the result of design-by-committee, what you get when you have a bunch of people who know fuck-all about design, making decisions on aesthetics in some misguided attempt to preserve Saratoga's Victorian charm. What?

So now, every new building amounts to a giant, featureless, brick box, devoid of any character or similarity to anything "charming."
