Our favorite blogger of bad architecture, Transfer, is at it again, this time surveying a skyscraper's outdoor plaza at 40th and Third: "They were able to beat out even their own height of detestable design, by making the 'Plaza' even more odious than the structure itself... It nearly comical they even open the steel gating. Its one thing to have a plaza facing the Ave, sunlit, appropriate for noon hour gawkers, touching the street and the pedestrians in fluidity. But this?? Let the bitterness shiver out your fingertips."
