Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you for the compliment.

As to a regular series on architecture, I would probably be the wrong person to commit to a regular anything. I guess you know me well enough by now to know that I would digress, ramble and jump off the tracks 'til what started out being about architecture ended up debating the importance of Newfoundland cod fisheries to European colonialist expansion... ;)

Kudos for mentioning Sturgeon's Law, which has long been a guiding light for me.

There is even a Sirocco's addendum: 5 percent of everything, except country & western music, rules.

I guess brutalist architecture is another candidate for exception status. A case in point is the wretched Chateau Neuf in Oslo, in which I must have set foot hundreds of times, and loathed incrementally more for each visit.
