Re: City Hall Plaza

If a vacuum is created in a high population city center, people will tend to use it as in the above photo. That kind of incidental patronage doesn't make it a wise and beneficial use of the land.

My experience on here of the critics of City Hall and GC in general is that they are not anti-modernist at all. I, like many others here, love modern architecture.

For me, it's not so much City Hall itself, it's the damned superblocks with vast plazas and wide highway-like streets that are really the abomination.
