Sad Lack of Beauty

24 09 2008

It is sad that in this age of wealth (really, we’re the richest we’ve ever been, at least in North America) we have such a lack of beauty in our public spaces.

On a trip to Prague this past spring, I saw this on the side of a building. How incredible. So gorgeous.

What do we spend all our wealth on? Home stereo systems? Cars? And for buildings, we slap on some stucco or some vinyl siding and go on our merry way.
