UK architects criticise Swiss minaret ban


Didn't Mangera famously propose a Mosque without minarets? Anyway, this is another good example of how we architects don't like the democratic process since it clashes with our own personal goals and ego. Like it or not, this was a referendum and as usual the supposed liberals (i use that word in its loosest sense for Switzerland) can't get off their backsides and make their vote count. Perhaps voting booths in Langstrasse would help. Plus Switzerland is not part of the EU and a closed shop where they have a lot of gold and every guy does national service each year and keep their weapons at home. Why is this referendum result a surprise?
