"It's big. It's grandiose. And it's an eyesore." Above all, it is an ear, nose and lung-sore. It didn't ruin the area, the area was already a neglected, poverty-stricken backwater before the station was built. But like driving a freeway through a residential neighborhood, the bus station purported to create a mega communications hub by cutting basic communication between the area's residents. You could die in a corner there and no-one would notice. Interesting that Heftsiba was involved in this mess too. How many others? Is anyone following the graft paths for this monstrosity? Aren't architects supposed to include context in their designs?
