I think what a lot of these buildings have in common is a lack of intelligence.

Is an inanimate object supposed to be some sort of intellectual?

Not every building needs to shine bright like a pulsar.
That's a common and highly annoying misconception of the recent starchitect generation.

We need more solid gold in the bank, i.e. New Classical architecture, outweighing all the short-term modernist loans without any proper long-term value.

Here's what one might consider an "intelligent building," or at least one blessed by the intelligentsia and contemporary architectural regime:


It's even in MIT.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/11/07/us/07mit.html?_r=0

Over a million in repairs soon after opening, design flaws, lawsuits. Not very intelligent. The Stata center does have a storm water management system, which could be considered an intelligent feature. But those sorts of features are not precluded by traditional architecture. Traditional architecture often developed from and responded to scarcity and environmental concerns, something the glass box model of modernity certainly does not.

Traditional buildings using local resources are so much more efficient and thus intelligent, it's blatantly obvious.

What a pile of shit! Anyone who could even contemplate living in this monstrosity is totally devoid of any intelligence whatsoever. If there are design flaws, malfunctions etc they only have themselves to blame

Sovico project in Hanoi, Vietnam
Only one city in Vietnam has this kind of architecture in the past which is Saigon. This building is alien to Hanoi.
