Mainland Architecture . . . an oxymoron

Ok, I am the first to admit that I am not a whiz when it comes to architectural design sensibilities. I build things that appeal to me and I try to make them such that they appeal to others. On the mainland, there appears to be an “anything goes” sort of mentality. Some builds are just painful to look at.

Recently, a strange, boxy rainbow of a building popped up right next to my property in Janus. It sits right behind my monument to Caledon with its info kiosk. Now, usually I am pretty accepting of peoples’ designs. They might not appeal to me, but I’m sure they did not build it for me. This particular one needs to be written about.

 Icky building

I’m not exactly sure from which design school of thought this particular build emanates. I am, of course, hoping that this is merely temporary. Please, please, please let it be temporary. I beg of you from the bottom of my virtual heart, let it be a temporary abboration! I am even willing to help you build something a little less vivid. I have textures galore. Just ask!

Ok, I’ve had my rant.

    Oh, my — even for the Mainland, that is excessive. I abandoned the Mainland when my tasteful Creole cottage was surrounded by banlines on 2 sides and a sexbed shop on the third.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    What I find so odd about the mainland, aside from the creative application of building aesthetics, is the fact that you can have a PG sim right next to a mature sim, yet their content is quite different. Janus is a PG sim, but just to the north is a mature sim. The one good thing about the technicolour popsicle building is it hides the hideously bright yellow of the XXX porn video store immediately behind it. 8-/
