Cary and I went. The images and info were of course fabulous... being AQJ, how could it not be? But we found it to be a poorly organized exhibition - in terms of layout and flow. It was a bit disjointed. And yes, Joe, would have liked to have seen more of his work for builders.

Please note that this is an "architectural preservation" forum. While the reflecting pools are gone, Pereira's buildings themselves are almost 100% intact and as beautiful as ever.

Bacon. That response is not appropriate for an architectural preservation forum.

Please actually review the facebook page and KNOW what you are talking about before you post a knee-jerk uninformed post.
