Yes, yes, yes to all the electronics, wall as sign, Dutch silences and possible revenge(s), but how is one to be really "naughty" these days?

Was watching the noon news on TV--plane crashes into Milan skyscraper--SOS was sent first--hopefully really an accident.

As demolition of Folk Art Museum begins, Archinect reflects on historical implications
If you want to talk about all this from the point of view of mistakes, then it's fairly self-evident that it was a mistake to build the American Folk Art Museum in the first place.

As demolition of Folk Art Museum begins, Archinect reflects on historical implications
The biggest piece of evidence is that the building was abandoned by the very institution that the building was built for. That's not to say that the building itself is what made the American Folk Art Museum abandon it, but there's no denying that the American Folk Art Museum could not sustain the building. Also, I think it's a fairly safe assumption that the American Folk Art Museum thought a high-profile building (which manifested as a highly idiosyncratic building) at a prime location adjacent the Museum of Modern Art would only add to the institution's and building's sustainability, and, as the present process of demolition makes extremely evident, that turned out to be a mistake as well. I just don't see how MoMA can be blamed for those mistakes, nor that MoMA [is or] was ever responsible for fixing them.
