Never Design a Building at the Office Christmas Party

...which is not to say this beauty at 45th and Hawthorne was, but if you try it, always hold your concrete up with precisely placed poles so the walls don't fall over.

Finally, make sure the building compliments the neighborhood.

What should we call this little gem? How about the Concrete Accordian?

I'm already rolling my eyes at the future residents of this place. Even though they're all still living in LA right now, and paying top dollar, sight unseen. I almost feel sorry for the poor dears. Almost.

How about "Chumphenge"?

Is this the same Hawthorn who's neighborhood association wouldn't let them bring in a McDonald's because it would spoil the neighborhood?

Maybe that monstrosity of a structure is going to be a 'green' building or an 'artist space'....then its OK, no matter what it looks like.

The only thing I can figure out is we've been instructed to build it to await the arrival of the Mother Ship.

That is going to make a beautiful jail. If they paint it green, it will make a beautiful "Green" Jail.

Don't you read the papers? It's the landing pad for the new Mt. Hood Tram.
