Re-read and post that, it doesn't make sense. I think I know what your saying so in regards to that. Obviously the architects don't necessarily design to look like something that it shouldn't, but through the concepts it just works out that way. You get so involved in achieving the function sometimes, that the form manipulates into something that would regulary be frowned upon. So does that mean you go back and change it, no not usually.
The states on the other hand can't be manipulated as easily. Besides their is history there on how they were derived. Those borders go farther back than most buildings and in a sense you would be rewriting history by changing it. I think you said it best, we just dont need to overreact about it!
I could understand changing those buildings during the design project, I just think spending half a million dollars changing it now is stupid.
It's pretty ridiculous to change it after the fact. Someone with half a brain should have noticed that on the print before they built the building. Now that it's already there, it's only important to note that it's not supported, and not intentional.
