Carlyle Towers

-A A +A
1992–1999, Holle and Lin, with Wayne Williams as designer. Jamieson Ave. and Dulany St.

Across from the courthouse stands this hapless, excruciatingly awful group of apartments and condominiums, which well illustrates that the colonial idiom cannot be expanded to fit all situations. One wonders whether it is intended as parody. More towers are planned.
