I am always amazed and fascinated at how much time it must have taken to carve, mold, install, and more to the point — MAINTAIN all of that finery. Who’s poor job is it to go up into the cupola (or whatever you call those ridges in the ceiling), for example, and dust the inside? Change the lights? What do they use to get up there? Who’s job is to take a toothbrush to the filigree work on the columns? Mind boggling. This also neatly explains why later 20th and 21st century buildings have veered into the simpler, plainer, easier-to-maintain post-modern look. Compare Seattle’s Benaroya Hall (1998) with Seattle’s Paramount Theatre (1928) to see what I mean.
