.... suggesting to a friend that we should have a snack next to a building that expresses trauma........
well if you hate your friend,it could make sense!

no seriously we should try the "antagonism" in such controversial architectural issue as i suggest before.
we can have Tadao Ando's meditation space as an example:
a cylinder-a pure fairfaced concrete- a pure euclidean form-minimal space-pure abstraction-sufism-"less is more" realm of thoughts
with using Hiroshima granite that was exposed to radiation from the notorious atomic bomb,it was used to pave the floor
this is architecture as i decode it(SPACE+FUNCTION+SPIRITUALITY)
