Is there a word for a plan (site plan, building plan, neighbourhood plan, etc.) that looks good as a plan (on paper, on the wall, nice to look at), but when implemented in real life - three dimensions - it does not work?
I am talking especially about projects that are based on the plan (for conceptual rationalization, or otherwise), but once complete the plan cannot be viewed and therefore the project is compromised/fails as a result.
If there is no word for this phenomenon, I think we need one.
My experiences in Halifax in the Bachelor of Environmental Design program.
