Elites Choose Ugliness in Federal Architecture, No Matter What the People Prefer

In his The Epoch Times column, the dissenting doctor laments the predictable reversal of President Trump’s reasonable executive order mandating that new federal buildings be built in the classical architectural style.

It did not decree that all buildings in America should be built in this style, only new federal ones, a tiny proportion of the total: unlike the modernist architects of the past who wanted to dictate the style of architecture for the whole world, and to a surprising and horrifying extent succeeded, with devastating effects on the beauty of cities everywhere.
