Yellow Office Building
The post office in Montpelier, Vermont is one of the ugliest buildings I’ve ever seen. This is not it. This building is beautiful. There are many other beautiful buildings in the capital. So why, if they can build such lovely buildings with our tax payer dollars do they build such eye-sores as the Montpelier post office?
It is not a matter of saving money, the post office uses expensive materials. It isn’t a matter of efficiency, there are plenty of gorgeous buildings that make good use of space. It’s not that it is a government building, there are many lovely public and governmental buildings. It is not that the post office is modern industrial style as there are some of those that look fine.
Fortunately we have some lovely buildings to balance the blemishes. Focus on the positive…
Update: Gravity (below) provided photos of the ugly post office…
and the beautiful building it replaced…
Sometime I’ll get a photo of the ugly new post office at the same angle as the previous building. It is a shame that someone would design such an abhorrent edifice to replace such a beauty.
