More Buildings Needed Like Crumpled Landmark

It is a shame that there are those who feel that the Markel Building, with its inventive crumpled aluminum siding, is ugly (“All aTwitter About Hideous Buildings,” Letters, Feb. 4). This type of thinking is why Richmond has so few interesting buildings. I feel that it is a local landmark, a standout, a building that puts Richmond on the map, and I am proud that architect Haigh Jamgochian sought to design and build it here.
