IT Graffiti in Public Buildings

The interface between Information Technology and the real world is not always seamless. Below are images provided by Frank and Jane Snyder on their trip across the United States visiting state capitols and presidential libraries. Where unfortunately, architectural beauty can be blunted by shocking displays of IT graffiti in the form of out-of-place computer/video/audio equipment and wiring. Most buildings have controlled this but the exceptions are glaring. Their conclusion is each building (public and private) should have a qualified person responsible to maintain the architectural beauty of the building by reviewing changes that violate the buildings visual appeal. That is, keep the IT graffiti out of public view.
