It's ugly. Sometimes, the art in architecture is just too far out for my taste. I don't like south Junior High, either. The building looks generic, dysfunctional, and cold. I hope this style of architecture is a fad that doesn't last long.

it's more like 3 million-the rest goes into the parking garage, and it's 19 million, even though the vote was for 18 million

How much of the 18 million is the ugly awning going to cost?

I just showed this to my five-year old. She's says "It's cool. I want it to look like that."

Why is no one in the concept drawing obese? Isn't this library supposed to be built here in Kansas?

This building would need a million dollar repair before it is paid for. how wasteful is this design.

So incredibly fugly. Is this real life? Why is it so ugly? Can't we do some old architecture? Kind of like the rest of downtown? Excluding the fugly Arts Center. I can't even begin to explain how fugly this proposal is. Kind of like the ugly Topeka library. Though, they have amazing services.

Why? It's ugly. What does it accomplish except waste money?

Isn't it sad that the quiet, dignified, beauty of past architecture, take the old Carnegie library for instance has been replaced by architect that throws out 1000's of years of design concepts made to make people feel a building is part of who they are instead of boil on their bottom.

I can't tell, is it a filling station or a 50's concept pic of an airport terminal?
