Designers of fashion, both couture and ready to wear can't really come up with anything new. They remix what has been done before but essentially we see that so and so is inspired by the shoulders of the forties or the dresses of the fifties, pant silhouettes of the seventies or whatever. The catwalks may be a circus of clever and creative although totally unwearable ideas but basically it's the same old stuff.
Architects are in the same position as clothing designers, wanting to flaunt their creativity and be different from the others, but hampered by that irritating criteria of actually being useful and useable. If boxy is your preferred shape but it just doesn't do anything for your figure, try living in it. Don't rush out and buy any old box in any old neighbourhood, please be conscious of the status that can be obtained by purchasing a couture home. Your neighbours will hate you, but don't worry it is only because you are beautiful.
Isn't it amazing what you can do with a box?
