Urban Sprawl or Urban Decay?

So if WSU Professor Ayad Rahmani and his "volunteer" student protesters think these new developments on Bishop Blvd. represent "architorture" and "urban sprawl":

Then what do they think about this urban decay along Pullman's most traveled and visible road, Grand Avenue?:

Perhaps rather than advancing an elitist, liberal fascist political agenda, a better extra credit project would be volunteering the students' expertise/labor to refurbish/demolish these dilipidated structures, the true archictectural "eyesores" in Pullman. How about a carwash or bake sale to raise money for the Grand Avenue Greenway project?

No fair showing those pictures of the "well planned" downtown. How dare you challenge the wisdom of a professor that's not satisfied with our community and his impressionable students who intend to shake the dust of this place off as fast as possible.
