The era of follies is over

Comment

Had the Victorians had a similar attitude to the authors, our public spaces would have been very mean. People were struggling to get by then as well. Were the garden bridge to be built subsequent generations would thank us for our contribution to London's public space and millions of photographs would have been taken each year of it or from it. The folly of its procurement would have been quickly forgotten. Although the procurement may have been a mess we also need some follies in our life or does Mr Richie as an architect suggest from now on simple cheap rectangular structures to all of our building needs? Why do we even need architects? since 'too many people are struggling to get by' lets save on architects fees by going for very simple concrete or brick boxes.
