Duh, there's a deep meaning here. A deep and somewhat valuable meaning— namely about the role of architecture as a form of branding, architecture as image and the utilization of architecture in the marketplace. The economy is a system— architecture, along with urban planning, are the facilitators of that system.

 

This building is probably the most distilled, pure and novel representation of that idea.

 

Also, the guy who commissioned this building paid an awful lot for it and that's what he wanted. In a service economy, isn't that what everyone wants— an easy-to-please whackjob with a lot of cash?

JJames, that was a fantastically well-timed use of the Longaberger Basket.  Bravo.

 

Architecture to me is a combination of material and memory - an object that contains our shared culture and provides shelter to allow that culture to happen.
