According to the BBC, Melih Gökçek, mayor of Ankara, has been sued by Turkey’s Chamber of Architects and Engineers for wasting taxpayers’ money on a giant robot statue. And in response Mr. Gökçek replaced the 6m tall robot with a life-size model of a T-rex, which was presumably less of a waste of money. But why did it have to be one or the other? I love giant robots and I also love life-size dinosaur models. Wouldn’t it have been better to leave the robot where he was and just add the dinosaur to the scene? Robots and dinosaurs are a great combination.
