Are Lego "stack and pack" apartments in Marin's future? // The Marin County Civic Center building
Are shipping container buildings, the ultimate "stack and pack" apartment buildings in Marin's future? Look what they are doing in New Haven. When you abandon all sense of reason and want to build at all costs, such monstrosities are possible.
I think that neighborhoods should have an influence on how they evolve. Unfortunately, the Board of Supervisors eliminated the architectural review requirement for most Subsidized Buildings if they conform with a national taste standard of "Smart Growth". Soon every apartment building from Santa Rosa to San Diego will have the same sickening design conformity favored by "Smart Growth" planners.
