MAGA: Make Architecture Great Again

Post by Fat Cat »

RECORD has obtained what appears to be a preliminary draft of the order, under which the White House would require rewriting the Guiding Principles for Federal Architecture, issued in 1962, to ensure that “the classical architectural style shall be the preferred and default style” for new and upgraded federal buildings. Entitled “Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again,” the draft order argues that the founding fathers embraced the classical models of “democratic Athens” and “republican Rome” for the capital’s early buildings because the style symbolized the new nation’s “self-governing ideals” .

Pretty sure Trump is going to want gold wallpaper and toilets.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

I'm no architecture expert, but I'm pretty sure this^ is true.
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
