Why buildings should be dumb boxes

One of the things I’ve liked about architecture is nooks and crannies and jogs 
and juts. Articulated surfaces. This article explains why that is a bad idea 
for both building and maintenance. Each of those jogs and juts requires more 
construction materials and is a point of tension subject to cracks from 
settling and age, leaks, one material aging differently than another.

The author discusses the need for another aesthetic to make dumb boxes as 
attractive as they are economical.
