Making the completely unacceptable somehow respectable

This is really perverse:  http://cw.na1.hgncloud.com/

It is as if the Guardian is so confident of its marketing ability that is can take the the most inhuman examples of residential architecture, repackage them as "hip happening now" and people are so gullible they fall for it.

What the Guardian is doing for brutalist architecture is what Tony Blair is doing for brutalist dictators - making the completely unacceptable somehow respectable (if you don't think for yourself).
