I'll try another one of these after "winning" the first contest.....think history, and big city....

What "planner" said this? said:
[It is] the most hideous waterfront structure ever inflicted on a city by a combination of architectural conceit and official bad taste. the Cathedral of Asphalt.

Who said this? said:
