Museum design rushed resulting in mundane proposals

The design process of the upcoming Royal Alberta Museum has been rushed, resulting in mundane and ordinary creations, according to the Calgary Herald.
The Canadian government put forth a competition for the design of the new museum, but gave a very short deadline. Due to the short turn-a-round, more contractors rather than architects applied for it, the news provider reports.
The top four designs have been chosen, and now it is up to the public to decide, even though they are reportedly dull and boring, according to the media outlet.
"I can tell you right away, the first rule when it comes to urban design is no blank walls, and I see a few in these designs," Gordon Price, director of the city program at Simon Fraser University, told the news source.
Individuals who are interested in architecture design may be able to land a job once they graduate from their design programs. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for professionals in this field is expected to increase by 16 percent between 2008 and 2018.
