Great Moments In Architectural Subversion

We were putting together some items for our annual "design" issue, and wound up over at Intersections, where we found Mexican architect Fernando Romero's design for a proposed bridge over the US-Mexican border.

At first we were kinda of saddened at the thought of a talented Mexican architect offering up a beautiful bridge to a country more interested in building fences to keep his people out. But then we noticed the striking resemblance to another bridge over troubled waters, one that commemorates a brutal defeat inflicted on the United States by an invading foreign force, culminating in the sinking of the U.S.S....wait for it.... Arizona.

Our property management division will be in touch with Sr. Romero about designing our new corporate headquarters sometime next week.
