Beautiful buildings – by presidential order

Trump signed an executive order before he left office insisting all new federal government buildings must be considered “beautiful” and ideally be designed in the classical or traditional style.

The American institute of architects have denounced the order, although it didn’t go as far as banning modernist architecture, as was suggested when the order was in draft form. 

Apart from stating that communities should be free to choose the architecture that works for them, it points out that the order makes government employees the judges of “taste”.
