If we’re going to have correllated building plans, which is a settled proposition, then why oh why can’t this be the “standard plan”? Something minorly aesthetic, rather than the industrial look that has been standard fare since at least the 1980s in every new iteration of the standard plan? In any event, it reminds me of the Dahlem Ward building in West Berlin, though this is a little more ornate than that.

I couldn’t agree more, john. A standard design doesn’t have to be devoid of beautiful design elements. But seeking for the lowest cost to build typically forces designers to strip all the nice features out of a building. You don’t have any pics of the Berlin chapel by chance?
