New Vernacular


The new architectural vernacular has evolved through the need to shade windows.  Corrugated metal and sun fins abound on new buildings, and that's not a bad thing.

Some will age better than others, and it will be interesting to see what becomes of all these bits in a few years when the ravages of salt and sunshine take their toll.  Will they simply be removed to save maintenance costs, leaving bland facades exposed to heat and view?

They look great but I often wonder about the future of such features on new building too.
