Re Martin Pawley and Terminal Architecture (aj 21.54.98): have I missed something vital, or is this just one side of the old buildings-versus- architecture debate, going back through Pevsner to the dawn of time? Viz: buildings serve a particular function and no more, while architecture adds art and layers of meaning?
Just possibly human society needs its art and its symbolism, while chocolate eggs need only an automated warehouse. Similarly, books can be stored in and retrieved from a big shed, while readers might prefer something approximating to a library. This seems perfectly natural. Sorry to intrude.
