Letter: CRC should look local



According to your article, the CRC has hired the same architect that designed the backward looking (in time) Palladium which is nothing more than a pathetic, botched attempt to recreate antiquity!! Now to add insult to injury, Mr. Schwartz has been engaged to further confuse the context of an already contextually confusing mass of buildings. Apparently CRC has forgotten that there are several highly qualified LOCAL architectural firms capable of “marrying the aesthetics from the nearby structures and come up with viable design ideas.”

All that being said, I have one question: Did the CRC interview any local architectural firms??
