Wealth distribution and architecture
2005-02-11 13:55:07 GMT/BST
Architecture during the latter half of the 20th century was, on the whole, very plain. I've been wondering lately whether plainer architecture correlates with greater equality in wealth distribution. I don't have any actual evidence that it does. It just occured to me that it might.
It would be an interesting thing to study. You'd have your work cut out for you just quantifying architectural plainness. Please let me know if anyone has done any work in this area.
