We're living in McMansion hell

I don't know about where you live, but around here the McMansions sprout like poorly designed mushrooms.

"McMansion," Wikipedia informs, is a pejorative term for a large "mass-produced" dwelling, constructed with low-quality materials and craftsmanship, using a mishmash of architectural symbols to invoke connotations of wealth or taste, executed via poorly thought-out exterior and interior design.

There's even a website devoted to these things. Another website called "Hyperallergic" -- we live in strange times, don't we? -- has helpfully collected some McMansion samples from McMansionhell.com for us.
