The View From Here

As an architect, I can tell you that architects and architectural critics look beyond the skin in judging a building. And having seen Trump Tower [Hot Type, August 10] up close and personal, let me tell you that ugly as it is on the outside, it's even worse inside.

Of course, the best thing about being in the ugliest building in town is that when you look out the window you don't see the ugliest building in town.
