Monday laugh

Well, I know some of my architect buddies won't laugh, but it did make me giggle. You only have to know the debate behind the Venice Charter to get the joke. From Steve Mouzon:

"The owners of the Villa Savoye decided that their villa was too small.  They hired an architect to draw up plans for a proposed expansion.  Because the Villa Savoye is historic, the architect followed the Venice Charter and made sure that the proposed expansion was differentiated from the original building.  This is the result."
