Inga Saffron Says "NO!"

New, 1 comment

Inquirer Architecture critic Inga Saffron is adamantly opposed to Councilman Mark Squilla's bill that gives a Malvern-based billboard company exclusive rights for 25 years to place three enormous, high-definition, digital advertising displays in key downtown locations. The final vote is scheduled for later this month. She says: "the mere act of walking through the streets of Center City will become a lot like a cab ride, but without the off button," and continues: "Squilla insists on describing them as a "marriage of art and architecture," rather than what they really are: billboards." Saffron, out. []
