Now my angle is not theoretic ; last week I was told to refine my methods so a frame would be lighter at top and this been the hell for that week ;))
What I find wrong, is to se decor as somthing you add, so I guess the modernism virus protect me as I guess it do with most of us, against the danger of making the decor being the issue, where it's most often just a detail.
Now new form languages will occour ,and I tried pointing to, that what we shuld xpect or maby even be for lookout for, is when technology let detailing make sense. Not as added decor but being intergratet in the form language, as then somthing new maby is strugling it's way thru boring modernism ; isn't this the backside of modernism to , how we lost the detail just becaurse it truly is not needed. Maby the detail will be needed to fill out our emagination, maby modernism is not dead or rather surely modernism is not dead it just refined with new technology.
Btw. I will get the application working, the one that will make any framework get smaller reaching the top, but P. ------ what's wrong filling in holes ,reducing the weight more and moe the nearer the top ;))
