Inspirational Architecture?

900 Monroe building design coincidence?

Just like the “creators” in any industry like clothing, automobiles, and even music – Architects surely found their “inspiration” from somewhere as they fine-tuned their design skills. You most likely take an existing idea that you like, and you “mash it up” with your own refinements. Can you imagine how many bands out there were started because of the Beatles and Led Zeppelin?

Anyway, Hoboken411 reader Alan found very similar characteristics between the under-construction building at 900 Monroe Streets (Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects) to the Ashtown residential building constructed back in 2007 in Dublin, Ireland (McCauley Daye O’Connel Architects).

You think it’s just a freak coincidence? Same architecture teachers? Or just another trend?
