How do we solve the ugliness problem?

I don't understand this. For millennia cultures from all over the world have valued beauty and attempted to make their surroundings pleasant and comforting. And then about 60 years the West threw that all out the window. How can people live like this, day after day in such soul-sucking hideous monotony? What's the cause? Is it mass-production? Is it the automobile eliminating the need to experience your environment to get places? Is it TV and vidya, allowing people to stay inside all the time? How can people tolerate such ugliness their entire lives? Perhaps this is part of why suicide and depression rates are skyrocketing.

      I mean, suburbs like in the pic aren't efficient either but that's another topic. I'm really curious about the aesthetic perspective... like how do people cope with living in such a sterile environment. Is it just screens 24/7? I find it interesting that architecture went downhill as soon as TV became widespread.

          They cost more to maintain than either cities or rural small towns... they are extremely inefficient. But again, you're missing the point. Cultures all over the world were willing to sacrifice some efficiency for the sake of beauty... until the 50s in America.

                They aren't ugly to you because they're what you're used to you. The reason they are so bland is because that's just the cheapest way to build them. It all centers around real estate garden gnomes trying to maximize profit. They brainwash whites to abandon the cities and live in their cheaply built homes and think it's the pinnacle of civilization. They made us forget our roots, beautiful, organic, welcoming cities surrounded by homely villages. I bet you haven't even been to a real city or village in your entire life.

                Do you know what happens when the population becomes more concentrated in urban areas? The outlying areas become LESS concentrated. Meaning properties outside the city become much cheaper and more spacious. Traffic improves. n-words (I hate even having to consider them but it's our reality), immigrants and liberals will be contained in one area. Less taxes to pay. Tighter knit communities. There's no downside to it other than a lack of (((business opportunities))).

                I completely agree that modern architecture is sterile and ugly. While there are probably regulatory reasons for this, there's an (in)human element as well. Structures built during a time when more people walked were made to be more appealing to look at since passers-by had a longer time to look upon them as a consequence of travelling on foot. There's no such incentive for modern architecture because it's set back 100ft from the road and you drive past it in a matter of seconds. It's just blank, lifeless geometry like a video game failing to load the textures for distant objects.

        from what I have gathered through the grapevine is that is comes down to the culture of architects. they are a very strange bunch of people. interestingly enough Bauhaus shows not just how ugly modern styling is but how utter fucking stagnant the styling is. not only is strip a building down to nothing resembling anything but a utilitarian structure, but it has done so and nothing else for about a hundred years now. I would recommend you read some articles on Le Corbusier. he is a name that comes up over and over again.

        Say you have a nice property, and the bare lot next door sold. Do you think I want to see somebody living in a plywood shed, shitting out in his yard? Maybe in Russia that's acceptable, but we have higher standards than that.

        >If we don't have massive amount of regulation, people will live in plywood sheds
        You already live in plywood sheds, in great part because of your regulations.

                Life in NK is chill, people are slow and calm, society seem to have very low expectations on people, much like we read in books about pre-industrial societies. It's like people managed to fulfil their, notable few, needs and them were living by idly; instead of alwasy trying to get something more.

                Most information from the west doesn't reach, beyond a few SK radios and TV stations, it's really hard for me to describe how life in NK is different.

          CONTRYside manors were just that: in the country. They had nothing to do with today's repulsive suburbs. All urban design before the 50s was characterized by a strong urban-rural dichotomy. This makes sense: you want to preserve farmland and beautiful wild areas. A dense town or small city provides access to the country for all its inhabitants within a reasonable walking distance.

          Because cities of the past were many times filthier and more disease-ridden than cities today. Even a San Francisco that's crawling with druggie homeless is less of a health risk than the average medieval city. It therefore paid to have a country retreat where they could go and recover. Cities aren't like that anymore thanks to modern sanitation.

            It's to stop people from slapping together a plywood box and calling it a house. People here used to be able to build summer retreat cabins out of code here, but they even changed that as time went on, because more and more people were living in them full time. Now even a cabin has to be up to code.

                I have a 100 year old house masonry and timber house which has massive timber, I could probably sell the lumber out of it just from the flooring, sub-flooring, and sub sub flooring (yes I have 3 layers) for the current market price of the home.

                My cross beams are 12x12 inches. You simply can't build a new home to last like this. I could take an artillery hit to my wall, it's fucking 18" thick.

        most people have no conception of beauty or aesthetics. to them beauty = more stuff and bigger stuff.(more beds/baths/garages). that's why rich people usually end up getting bigger versions of the same ugly houses you see in the suburbs instead of hiring a proper architect. I'm sure there are architects who focus on traditional aesthetics that would love to get more commissions

    Suburbs are a direct result of white flight. The early prototypes of it were seen when tracts of cheap housing were built for soldiers returning from the war. This cheap and quick ready-made neighborhood could be built far enough from the city to prevent more blacks moving in and the higher prices charged would keep them out for a long time. With their cities captured and fallen, white people retreated to a safe haven where they could get some measure of safety while doing without the luxuries cities can bring and without the true community of rural living at the time.
    In short, suburbs are white refugee camps. You just didn't recognize that because nobody else makes refugee camps that are even semi attractive.
    Don't compare them to city or rural living. Compare it to every other refugee camp you've ever seen.

    What many cities do is they'll usually for various reasons whether it be lobbied or by demand will declare an undeveloped area to be residential. When they decide this they'll usually hire or contract out the area to a developer who then to save money will hire one architect to design a small variety of units or houses then use that same design over their entire area.
    The city gets development which looks good, the developer gets money from the city, and the homebuyer gets shitty commute times since all commercial centers are only accessible by car.

    The answer for me was to go outside. I dont even know what i am doing outthere most the time. Cleaning my car or walking around.

    I have an abandoned pet rat, i take him for buke rides on my shoulder.

    I dont have any friends close by and am single.

    Going outside as much as i can has saved me. I think it can save most people. That is all i have.

    I am lucky for my mother helping me get a sweet car when i was down and out, a 1995 3000gt. So that is the one thing i can keep beautiful, so i always let her know how thankful i am by keeping it look as fresh and clean as possible. I also have been doing good with my jo , from where i was, so i have another vehicle, but always spend my time making the car the best it can.

    Tl:dr. Go outside. Do something, even if it is walking alone arou d the block.

                My experience living in the US unfortunately always had the unpleasant presence of some form of HOA or another. Land of the free my ass, people were trying to tell me how to paint my walls, how to cut my grass, how to park my car. Genuinely less free than Russian. I'm happy to know most of the country is not like this.

                We have similar housing here, but HOA's for detached homes are far less common. A rarity, in fact, although they do exist. I'm guessing they use them to keep n-words out?

                I think HOAs are used to give power hunger, petty people a way to exercise their power and virtue signalling drives.

                We have similar housing here, but HOA's for detached homes are far less common. A rarity, in fact, although they do exist. I'm guessing they use them to keep n-words out?

                It's to stop people from slapping together a plywood box and calling it a house. People here used to be able to build summer retreat cabins out of code here, but they even changed that as time went on, because more and more people were living in them full time. Now even a cabin has to be up to code.

                Yes anon, I know you Americans like to pretend China is all that is bad, but people in Chinese cities have more freedom to build and manage their houses than people in urban America.

                Also, dynasties have lasted for more time than the US has existed.

                Yeah, you're not wrong. The issue is they are all (malls, 'community centers,' etc.) artificial, contrived locations. In pre-industrial cities and towns organic community spaces like grew up to actually fit people's needs, and the difference shows.

                You know, the best kinda of mall, at least for me? Those poor old malls, that are almost build at random, with a lot of odd shops and spaces, those closer to what human cities should be.

                Adding a bathroom wouldn't require a permit, as it's considered a minor change/renovation. Here, it's gas and electrical modifications that technically require a permit, but nobody gets them usually. Not even electricians get them when doing minor work.

                So let me try to put it in words you'll understand, by bathroom I mean the whole thing; the walls, the sink, the toilet, the water tubes, the power cables and switches, the lights, the mirror, everything that goes in a minimalist bathroom.

                >for no city doesn't require a permit
                Is this really true or did you learn it from ConfuXius? Because here I just need a permit to increase my sewage outflow but if the average amount of SHIT remains the same the city doesn't care.

                Only when my sewer line is pressurized and wearing a hole in the opposite wall of the sewer main will they ever even notice.

                I still call you a liar who claim to live in Neverland, for every single American city requires at least one permit to build a bathroom.

    >Is it mass-production?
    In this case it is that simple. The business model is;
    Buy land at the edge of town
    Develop
    Sell developed houses
    Repeat

    This cycle incentivizes the developers to build cookie-cutter to make things cheaper. They also have no reason to make it beautiful, they're not going to live there. It just has to be profitable and presentable enough that people will buy them.

    Beautiful places get made when someone who cares about the specific house and specific community builds the houses and the businesses and the churches. Only that person can choose to give up profit in exchange for beauty. A developer cannot make that choice. Even if a developer wants to build something beautiful, it has to be for the purpose of generating more profit by selling it for more money. They cannot build beautifully for the sake of it.

        It's kind of hard to imagine. Where would profit-obsessed America find the wherewithal to ban profit-seeking in home development? Especially when everyone's shrieking about housing shortages already?

        A "Dictator of America" plan, which assumed you could pass whatever you wanted into law, would be two-pronged I think. We need to turn away from whole development, for starters. How it used to work is that cities/towns would build up slowly over time, organically, like a reef, with each new home or business building on the last. It took time but the result was always more particular to the land and community. How we do it now is that they buy a whole plot, build the whole "community" at once, and then move on.

        The second prong is figuring out rules for growth. Even planned communities can be good, the problem comes two/three generations later when more people want to move in than the community planned for. So it starts getting cancerous growths on the outskirts of people who abandoned their own towns for a town that's already a success. Eventually the well-placed downtown is 30 minutes by car from the outskirts of the now-city and all the growths suck. It's not enough to plan the initial community, you also have to plan how it can grow without losing its essential character.

        Every day, my disgust with Canada grows. Even in USSR one could build a cabin in a simple manner, without having to kiss 12 bureocracy asses to have a standardized building.

        No, that's literally the reason. Cities used to be public health hazards and doctors would literally prescribe trips to the countryside as treatment because of how awful cities were for people. Of course the rich just maintained a second house in the country they could run away to whenever they wanted, or stayed close enough to commute every day (something most people couldn't afford); assuming they weren't purely rural and never went into the city at all.

        That concern is pretty moot in 2022. Cities are very clean and would be cleaner without the cars that suburbanites drive into the city.

The larger point is that you said they like the isolation, and I pointed out why they liked it; not just for its own sake but for practical purposes, like escaping disease/riots and having productive land to earn more income with. The motivations medieval lords had for rural estates were not the same as the ones modern first-world middle-class workers have for detached suburban homes. The two residence types are not alike in the first place, and the reasons for having them are completely different. The comparison is disingenuous and as far as I can tell an attempt to conflate modern ugly mass-produced stick-houses with old lovingly made rural manses and mansions.

      You're being ironic but malls did serve to fill our deep-seated human need for a community space once our neighborhoods failed at that. Of course the malls did a piss-poor job... but they made an attempt.

          Yeah, you're not wrong. The issue is they are all (malls, 'community centers,' etc.) artificial, contrived locations. In pre-industrial cities and towns organic community spaces like grew up to actually fit people's needs, and the difference shows.

    They are worker bee colonies. There is usually a big room in those houses for television programming after work. If you work hard and behave at work for 30 years, you can "own" one of these babies. And as long as you pay your rent... I mean, property tax, you can stay in "your" house. Afterall, you paid for it right, and you even bought the nice people at the bank a house too for lending you all that money they got out of thin air. It's the American Dream. Everybody's doing it. It's why we live.

        For all the naysayers: OP is right. America definitely has sacrificed beauty for the sake of lower costs. The reason has to do with the fact that america is a new land where people could make big money, and which lacked a natural people and culture.

        The problem is that even then, housing in the US is insanelly expensive.

            Kek.

            I'm sure they liked riding horses out there too anon. The larger point is that you said they like the isolation, and I pointed out why they liked it; not just for its own sake but for practical purposes, like escaping disease/riots and having productive land to earn more income with. The motivations medieval lords had for rural estates were not the same as the ones modern first-world middle-class workers have for detached suburban homes. The two residence types are not alike in the first place, and the reasons for having them are completely different. The comparison is disingenuous and as far as I can tell an attempt to conflate modern ugly mass-produced stick-houses with old lovingly made rural manses and mansions.

            I'm sorry, you're below a direct reply. Go get some of your humanity back and we can talk.

            Yeah not sure why. Maybe regulations preventing construction?

            The culture plays a big role. We have come to accept that a house is supposed to be a cardboard box with wires running through it, and that your lawn is for dumping money into so it grows useless grass that you just mow, and to go pick up some veggies you have to fire up a 4000 pound machine and burn petroleum to go to the store to pick up something that is only there because of a large network of trucks—despite being surrounded by fertile land.

            Americans are honestly just retarded.

            >Americans are honestly just retarded.
            I guess it's because houses in the US are seem as an investment, not as a place to live. The idea of reducing cost at any cost, trying to speculate the value and ban new constructions are pretty standards in the US.

    Real solutions:

    >remove the thousands of useless regulations/ordinances that prevent people from building their own homes the way they want to
    >build a better infrastructure layout so neighborhoods are walkable to and from all necessary buildings for weekly life

      Those are clearly pre-war houses on the outskirts of the inner city. Where I live it's mostly n-words who inhabit them. We're talking about the post-war white flight era suburban developments which continuously expand into the countryside with copy and paste mcmansions.

        i live in a neighborhood with homes currently being built similar to this house, and ours is also similarly designed. was built in McMansion style, but i feel as though the biome and yard has alot to do with your neighborhoods experience. living in new modern upscale suburbs can be like OP's pic if you live in ass fuck midwestern upscale suburbs, but even desert biome houses like in nevada Utah and AZ have nice houses that are copy paste built. if the tacobell houses have it right then idk what the builders in other states are doing to make their neighborhoods aesthetic so piss poor.

          There's a million things wrong with McMansions and suburbs but one minor thing that always strikes me is the width-height ratio. These houses are always so fucking FAT. A lot of them, even in richer areas are one-story, and those that aren't still splay out way too much. Older houses always have much better proportions, and they are taller to make better use of space.

    Well the thing in common with the move to shitty modern architecture is similar to the move society has made broadly speaking since then. Which is that society has begun to increasingly rely on the advice of people with shitty advice. You can see in this thread how many people still cling to the belief that newer is better, and how many dont know how modern architecture is clearly the architecture of autistic people. it shows that even here people still struggle to break free of the shackles imposed on them by their culture. mostly because the path to break free is so well hidden. Things like modern building materials cost more and are less effecient than older ones, it baffles their minds, how can this be? well lead paint and even newer lead free paint are still more toxic than say a traditional plaster. Limestone, brick, clay all cost less than steel. I suppose this is the stage where you are either beginning to or already have broke through third positionism and into traditionalism. You are perhaps starting to see how utterly fucked we are, how much we have truly lost.

      Think of it as an upgraded trailer park. They're in the middle of the desert typically.

      Ironically a literal trailer park might actually be better... it's often small and dense enough that nature, trees or farms, is nearby. And their is usually a sense of community that is lacking in these uncanny upper-middle-class burbs.

And then about 60 years the West threw that all out the window. How can people live like this, day after day in such soul-sucking hideous monotony? What's the cause? Is it mass-production? Is it the automobile eliminating the need to experience your environment to get places? Is it TV and vidya, allowing people to stay inside all the time? How can people tolerate such ugliness their entire lives? Perhaps this is part of why suicide and depression rates are skyrocketing.

    It's because we focus quantity not quality.
    If we would have went for quality it would have been more expensive, take more time and we wouldn't be able to trick ourself into thinking that we need economic growth.
