-I like the comparison of rock and roll hair and makeup to architecture
-I also like the fact that it's ok to think of a design or elements of a design because we like it. Using the superficial as a tactical device is an interesting one because the "superficial" appeals to human senses and it seems to make sense to want to harness this type of influence in a design profession where we aim to influence an occupant's experience or perception of a space. But, I also think that the "superficial" has the potential to become an out-dated.
