As we begin a new year, I plan to begin two new series on my blog. The first will be Architecture No-Nos and will include (often blatant) design flaws found around us. The other will be Missed Opportunities. The missed opportunities often will apply to development that would have been perfectly suited for mixed uses.

I’m no advocate for fake, but when adding a fake element, it is important to, at the minimum, place it in front of building mass that makes it reasonably appear as to not be fake. We can all see that the header for this “window” at Lakeside Village Center sits above the roof immediately behind the thin parapet wall. Not sure if the designer failed to look at it three-dimensionally, but it just looks goofy. And fake.
