Banks a "Rainbow Town?"

Dr. Vlasta Molak, who frequents Hamilton County Commission and Cincinnati City Council meetings, has an idea for the Banks project. She calls it "Rainbow Town."

Click here and here for her sketches.

At county commission meetings, Molak typically uses her three minutes at the podium to criticize the county government on various fronts, including its vision for the Banks. Among the criticisms, she wants it to be much more green. She e-mailed this statement to the Enquirer listing her criticisms and suggestions for the project.

Why does this get press? My 8 year old has crayons as well, should her Banks design get a story as well?

I like it. I like it just like I like the rivers of soda and the gumdrop trees and the marmalade skies.

My three year old nephew can draw a better diagram than that. Now I do understand that visions in Cincinnati should be more sustainable, but they must be viable and ecconomical for the city. Being a masters of architecture student at daap, I can see where she is comming from, yet I do suspect she is doing this all for publicity. People shouldn't feed into her retoric and get all upset, because that is what people want when they need attention. The banks project should look at the Us Green Building Council and the projects that they have endorsed. Why not make the banks project viable and ecconomical, while being sustainable for Cincinnati? I don't see why not. Just never call it Rainbow anything, why not tie it into the city? Cincinnati's Diamond in the rough?

We already have a rainbow flag hanging from Mayor Mallory's office. Isn't that enough? Keep the rainbow flags out of the Banks project!
