Stupid NYT

"...Pink and similar hues - from rose-tinged brick to tangerine and even magenta - have been popular in the last few years with Chinese developers, who have also proven partial to tinted, highly reflective glass and rooftops in the shape of lotus blossoms.

The result is an extraordinary number of garish apartment buildings, office buildings, industrial parks and houses."

One nice casualty of globalization will be the American monopoly on thinking we have a monopoly on what's cool. We don't. Maybe consumers preferences are actually - dare I say it - different in China. Everytime I go back to NYC, I think it's pretty garish, to tell the truth (sorry new yorkers!).
