Beauty commission would have councils become witchfinder generals


As stated in the article, beauty is subjective. I tend to think that if something is neat and efficient (as often in nature) then it will usually look right as well. Of course, boxes are neat and efficient but...... Time shows up what is good and what is bad. Take car design for example. What may initially may appear too bold can sometimes mature and warm to the eye whilst some shapes, which are designed by a committee and that are too safe, can date quite quickly. Should everyone not be concentrating more on making buildings more efficient to "save the planet" though?
