they were monolithic , dull and boring. Whether it was deliberately
designed to make the people feel small in relationship to the state I'm
unsure. Yet when viewed in the context of a beautiful cathedral, the 2nd
3rd largest in the world, they do appear to be depressing. If it's an
official architectural style or not I'm unsure and should have been
that some people's sensitivities could be aroused by that description.
As I'm writing you I am in the Buffalo Convention Center at the New York
State Computers and Technology in Education conference. This building is
done in a boring style that allows the steel beams to show and
participants from hanging around.
