Iconography, or the problem of representation
To talk about a building's spatiality and experientiality via looking at pictures is a poor and very disappointing way to critique architecture.
Plus, how 'powerful' does an emergency services building (fire station) really have to be?
My local fire station is a nice and modest civic building, although it still saddens me that the tower was taken down a number of years ago--towers for the drying of hoses are now obsolete. The Rite-Aid store across the street is not as attractive but somewhat visually more powerful.

leak alert
Although it's still a government secret, there are plans in the works toward creating a USA satellite channel/network, an ongoing and continuous broadcast stream of all things USA. Right now the biggest obstacle to getting the project launched is the debate as to whether or not to allow commercials throughout the programming. (Is this a no-brainer or what?!) My stance within the debate is to allow commercials, but only for architects/architecture. (I suppose this is another kind of no-brainer.)
