Yeah, it's hard to remember there's a functional building behind the Disney Hall facade.
That makes me think of the Mummers Theater in OKC. It was designed by John Johansen in the Brutalist style.  He claims he was inspired by how computers worked!  The Mummers was transitioning from a small storefront theater to being the main community theater.  In the fundraising stage it was decided that they needed to have a worldwide competition to get a worldwide star designer so they would have bragging rights.  Of course the chosen winner went way over budget so the production funding for the Mummers got gobbled up.  Oh, one fun thing, one savvy person later claimed that the building was inspired by the many grain elevators in Oklahoma.  That made sense. LOL  It was eventually demolished after flooding.

I'm weird. I like the cybertruck.


I remember when the Ford Taurus first hit the market. Nobody liked it. it was ugly, everybody thought it would be a huge debacle. But they sold, and sold very well. And that ugly body and front wheel drive V6 meant the MPG numbers were huge for a family car.



I also like the Bollinger truck. And as far as function over form goes, the Bollinger has them all beat. Unfortunately I don't thing Bollinger has the business savvy to be a real player in the EV game.

My Dad used to say "beauty is skin deep but ugly is to the bone" it doesn't do anything for me either.  I can't wait to see the new truck from Lordstown Motors.  Right down the highway from me in Ohio.  It is tough looking and has great tech.
