Now here is a corner of a huge building which I thought looked like something from the Stalinist period, with huge eagles guarding all the sides of the building.
Sometimes I wonder about the atmosphere of the times when it was normal and ordinary to add so much detail and embellishment to buildings. Designers and architects once cared enough to add sculptures and gargoyles etc. Nowadays we value minimalism and we seem to like simplicity in our surroundings, but have we perhaps gone to far? Maybe it's time to think about adding back the details which give charm and beauty to our homes and offices.
