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.
