almost there . . .

Right now, you know, it's just a nicely appointed building in empty space, but in due time there will be trees, and people, and all of the other buildings on Bonifant Street to keep it company while little Photoshopped cars drive by. Later today, we'll drive downtown to submit our competition entry and in a couple of weeks we'll find out if we won or not. (There is $6,000 riding on this.)

Regular posting will begin again tomorrow. Come on by for a re-cap of Where Did I Drink Last Weekend, followed by long-awaited interviews with Thomas Hardman and Ben Kramer.


Thomas Hardman said...

Ah, careful there, Dan.

You might have been inspired by a famous building in Aspen Hell.


Dan Reed said...

Nah, we're doing this far classier. When the competition results come out I'll have some better renderings showing what it really looks like.

Thomas Hardman said...

Classier? Thank goodness!

That SunTrust Building isn't really all that icky, but it does have a certain period-piece look to it.

If you ever want to see genuine Raw Aesthetic Horror, see some of the cityscapes in the 1972 film "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes". Talk about an unfortunate period in architecture. I shudder.
