Over the last few decades while under the globalist rule, one of the less vital aspects of life in America to suffer was the lack of pleasing aesthetics in public art. Frankly, a lot of what the government-sponsored in the way of art was downright hideous.
Well, it seems that the Trump Administration is about to change that. It looks like American public art will be great again just like the economy, the military, and our standing on the world stage.
The Architectural Record has obtained a preliminary draft of the order, entitled ‘Making Federal Buildings Beautiful Again’, under which “the White House would require rewriting the Guiding Principles for Federal Architecture, issued in 1962, to ensure that “the classical architectural style shall be the preferred and default style” for new and upgraded federal buildings.
The order would reverse favoring Brutalist and Deconstructivist styles advocated by the General Service Administration’s (GSA) Design Excellence Program and would instead favor the architectural styles of “democratic Athens” and “republican Rome.”
The executive order trashes brutalist buildings such as the U.S. Federal Building in San Francisco, the U.S. Courthouse in Austin, Texas, and the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. U.S. Courthouse in Miami as having “little aesthetic appeal.”
The draft order asserts that Brutalist and Deconstructivist styles “fail to satisfy” the requirements of building designs to provide “dignity, enterprise, vigor and stability.”
In a development that almost certainly isn’t a coincidence, GSA’s Chief Architect and Director of the Design Excellence Program, David Insinga, resigned his post last week.
Thanks to Paul Joseph Watson for this report. If it is true, then America really is being remade in her original image in ways that many of us never thought possible when President Trump was elected.
Frankly…it’s about time.
