The name is Bond. Chez Bond.

James Bond has a lot to answer for.  Never has one man destroyed so much fine architecture -- from Ken Adam's 'Diamonds are Forever' set above, to John Lautner's Elrod House in the same film, to Dr No's lair below.  Stories here and here about some of that architecture and what its destruction might mean, and a so-so slide show of some more architecture chez Bond.

  1. Apparently destruction sells. It gives some people (a lot of people) the impression that a problem is being solved.
