Depressing, depressing, depressing . . . out of the entire list, there are only two that I would want to spend any time at all around. The town hall by Aalto and the village school by Kere at least seem to have some sense of human scale . . . some of the others are truly hideous (think of those poor nuns in that convent by Le Corbusier . . . did they take a vow of lifetime penance?).
