At least some still have taste (or so it seems). I've just read that Carlos Slim Helú bought Duke–Semans mansion (in July apparently) on the Fifth Avenue, for $44m:

A prime example of Beaux-Arts architecture, too bad many such Manhattan townhouses got demolished.

That's question number one.

Question number two is: how the hell did these architects allow themselves to design such a horrible building?! blink.gif Where did their taste go? Sure, Mukesh Ambani told them what he would like, but they could have toned it down quite a bit or improve the 'template'.

Which ones?

For a moment there I freaked out: I thought you meant both, Antilia and Helú's new NY abode.

I love the Duke–Semans house, always did. wub.gif The address is 1009 5th Ave, New York so if you're interested you can use Google Street View to see it from different perspectives.
