    foursquare

yikes do people still use foursquare? that kind of gave the article an "old man yells at cloud" quality to me...

I'm with you on this one.

The 'airspace' thing definitely exists, but if you go out of your way to look for homogeneous spaces you will find homogeneous spaces.

I think you might be right in that it does have a bit of an "old man yells at clouds" feel to it. I still thought it was kind of interesting though and that there might be some truth to the article. The "hipster aesthetic" when it comes to interior design does seem to feel homogenized, though I didn't know it was an international thing (not that I'm ever in Asia or Europe). I wonder if this design will go down in our memories as part of the feel of the 2010s, much like fins on cars for the '50s or bell bottom jeans for the '60s and '70s.

I think this is likely.
