I’m not the only one who thinks scaffolding is pretty:
That’s not a house that is being worked on by builders. It’s .. a house. It’s finished. Here.
However, when architects start “designing” scaffolding, I think that for me the scaffolding loses a lot of its appeal. A lot of what I relish about how scaffolding looks is that the people who put it up don’t care how it looks. When they start caring, as the designer of this scaffolded house clearly did, scaffolding loses its essential aesthetic purity.
Anther way of putting this is that once architects start designing scaffolding, I fear that it may start falling down.
