Can the Building be the Hero?

Can the Building be the Hero?

It’s Hero Wednesday again:

Ok, this is a very cool building…can a building be a hero? Probably not…a valued component of a community or aspect of ones life…but a hero, perhaps not. So is the hero the developer with the idea of transforming the experience of a PARKING GARAGE in to a valued communal space of gathering, interest, experience and entertainment…with his plush roof top abode capping it all off!? That’s kinda hard to swallow too, but he did set the stage for things to happen. And then there are the Architects, Herzog and De Meuron who took the germ of an idea…a great idea…and made it happen. I still wish that the building could be the hero…
