Weekly Poll (5)


Recently, President Joe Biden reversed Executive Order 13967 of Dec. 18, 2020, Promoting Beautiful Federal Civic Architecture. Do you believe all federal buildings in Washington, D.C., as well as new federal courthouses and certain other federal buildings should be designed in architectural styles other than “classical” or “traditional?”


Over the summer, Danish architecture firm COBE was tapped for a new science center, planned to be built in the Swedish university city of Lund. With plans to be fully carbon-neutral, do you think the potential icon of sustainability and durability will inspire a future generation of architectural projects?


At the beginning of August, a “waste-to-energy skyscraper,” ideally to be housed in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, was proposed by United States-based designer Honglin Li. Given an honorable mention in the 2019 eVolo Skyscraper Competition, do you think the design has the potential to become an actualized project?


A recent study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that in many climates in the United States, the use of “cool” exterior walls could lead to annual heating, ventilation and air conditioning energy cost savings up to 11% for stand-alone retail stores, 8.3% for single-family homes and 4.6% for medium-sized office buildings. Do you believe the cost savings is worth sacrificing a building's style?


As part of an ongoing color war, artist Anish Kapoor has been banned from using artist Stuart Semple's color-changing paints, Phaze and Shift, after previously being banned from several of Semple's product lines. This is in response to Kapoor getting exclusive artistic rights to using Surrey Nanosystems' Vantablack. Do you think this color war is still justified or has it gone on long enough?
