A Series of Unfortunate Events
"The purpose of architecture is to create an atmosphere in which man can live, work, and enjoy." - Minoru Yamasaki
I share my birthday with architect Minoru Yamasaki, whose grandest and most noted structures have been destroyed: The Pruitt-Igoe Public Houseing Project in St. Louis was demolished in 1972, the same year I was born. The twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City were destroyed by hijacked airplanes in 2001, the year I started the DystopiaBox weblog.
