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.

As a devout believer in the paranoid critical method, I just lay out the facts and then cram them up real close to each other with no context and let people make that small jump by themselves.
