Cartoonitecture is "drive-by design that looks best at 70 mph. Flaunting gaudy colors and eye-catching gimmicks, these barnlike boxes stuffed with stuff draw attention any way they can... The problem isn't that one center has neon stripes and another looks like a Spanish villa on steroids; the Brown Derby restaurant in Los Angeles, shaped like a you-know-what, is proof that goofy thrills have turned heads for decades. But as the buildings grow larger and design schemes grow more elaborate, something is being ignored -- what it's like to actually walk around them."
