On one level yes. But Lexus and Infiniti as brands are essentially products of US import controls. They then took off globally (well, Lexus did), but a lot of their cars are sold under the parent marque in to Japan market.
What is wrong is that incurious folk like you and SH often forget the social aspects of architecture.http://archinect.com/blog/article/26650876/occupy-what-architecture-can-doTemporary structures can be as significant as any of the doll houses that have been posted here as of late.http://www.ted.com/talks/shigeru_ban_emergency_shelters_made_from_paper.html
I'm afraid not, but it looks like the exterior reflects the interior:http://www.archdaily.com/26634/beth-sholom-stanley-saitowitz-natoma-architects/I have been inside two of Saitowitz' residential projects. He does seem to get the concrete thing right. Though on one of them I noticed the BMR unit had a clear view from the street into the bathroom.
Thank you.All these pictures were taken by me personally. They represent the best views that I could come up with of spaces that impressed me in their context. Ultimately, buildings are places where people work, live, play, worship, etc.Unfortunately, I never got large-scale view pictures of Zucotti Park during Occupy. Nevertheless, the blue tarp tents are buildings, albeit temporary ones.
