Rooftop Bar ~ The Way The Top Should Be!
Most everyone knows how irritated I am that the latest MIT buildings have been so incompetently conceived and executed. There's a long list of damnable errors of design, construction, operations, and maintenance, but one especially stupid element is poor use of roof space. I wrote last week about how every top should be a garden. Especially when you have the views of either the MIT Sloan or Media Lab projects, there should have been proper function space as well. Something akin to this Sirocco Bar at the Lebua Hotel in Bangkok... (And the bare-bones, inaccessible, paltry sad-excuse of a deck in the new Media Lab scarcely qualifies.)
