What I've read about the EDSA plan makes me wonder about the creative talents of the Stone family. This is not meant to speak ill of the departed, but the late Edward Durell Stone Jr., founder of EDSA, was the son of a prolific architect. In the 1960s, Edward Sr. was commissioned by Vanderbilt University to design a complex of six undergraduate dormitories. What he came up with was some very nice-looking buildings with a lot of modern touches, except for one important thing: The three toilets on each floor had no doors or even partitions, and, to make matters worse, they sat directly opposite the large mirror mounted above the long row of communal sinks.
