Has anyone seen this peculiar addition to the mall? There are oddly ghosted elements of the house where Washington once resided, a pit showing the foundation of the original house topped by a high tech glass enclosure and various informational displays including a flatscreen TV mounted above a fake fireplace mantel.
It's like a Cherry Hill McMansion meets the Benjamin Franklin ghost house meets Apple's glass cube in New York City.
I don't get it. Why does Philly get weird architecture and monuments like this? It's obviously "design by committee" and what's worse is that the message is totally muddled. The NYTimes basically asked, "What the hell?"
