LETTER: "Pejorative & Just Plain Silly"

I found the caption to the photo of the Music Center unnecessarily pejorative and just plain silly. (See Page One photo cutline, March 27 issue). To call the design "futuristic" is to have slept through the recent past. With evolving construction materials, iconic buildings have enjoyed freely expressive lines since the middle of the last century.
Much earlier, the Eighteenth-Century German poet and playwright Goethe, famously said, "Architecture is frozen music." I can't think of better words to describe the Music Center's melodic lines. Or look at the photo again and notice how the Center reflects its setting, the distant silhouette of hills and the rolling geology of Groton itself. Our town has plenty of space for white clapboard rectangles and flights of inspiration alike.
