Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

Digital rendering of NYU expansion plan near its existing Greenwich Village campus; though 11 community groups are fighting the plan in court, as they don't want the added traffic and more crowded subways, etc. (The buildings shown only in white are present ones).



City Is Sued Over Approval of N.Y.U. Expansion Plan
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: September 25, 2012

Eleven groups have filed suit against New York City for approving a plan to expand New York University’s footprint in Greenwich Village, a move that critics say could destroy the university’s historic neighborhood.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, accuses government decision makers, including both the City Planning Commission and the City Council, of illegally turning over public land to facilitate the university’s plans. It also claims that the approval process lacked transparency and denied the public a chance for meaningful input.

Really?

I did my Part 1 a few years ago but I am currently on hiatus. Not sure if I will ever go back tbh but I still love Architecture.

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

Roman arches may be the most structurally sound design in use for even nearly so long.

It's nice but I go there all the time for performances and the interiors are not as nice as the Opera houses in Europe. But I suppose it is iconic.

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

How beautiful was the Ancient Egypt's architecture?








The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

One of the best in the "ancient" worlds ... but generally, gross.

Gross? WTF Much better than some of the repetitive shit there's everywhere nowadays
