They haven't, unfortunately. The general population has very little sway because at the end of the day, they aren't democratically voting on how buildings look. And they aren't listened to. So, Automation Gallery, I don't understand your point or logic. You think that people outside of UrbanToronto are really thrilled with glass boxism? I like them most of the time, but I know hundreds more that don't like them almost ever.
I also don't understand the defensiveness people have against any sort criticisms of the over-use of glass. I love glass... I love neo-modernism. Hell, I almost always love aA designs (proof in itself of being a glass neo-modernism)! Stop being so defensive.
I completely agree.
