Oh, lord! Well, what did we expect?

This inane stuff does no credit to architecture, and surely will not persuade anyone responsible for decision making to entrust major development to a bunch of self-indulgent kiddies.

Does the proposal deserve a serious critique? I don't think many others will bother giving it the time. However, for starters:

This is a series of cop-outs. First, to throw away the program rather than addressing the given issues. The submission is "hors de concours," or out of the contest for this reason. The designers are saying, "We can't deal with this problem, so we'll give you solutions to other problems."

Second, what was supposed to be a collaborative enterprise has resulted in a pastiche of half-backed "concepts." It's a menu for diverse fare--not very solid fare at that.

Muschamp, you're not helping architecture by promoting this sort of frivolity. We already had this at the gallery sideshow.
