"Technology over the past 50 yrs has evolved faster then at any point in human history." Has it ? I think not. Known technologies may have become more widely available, but I think that you will find that the actual innovation largely happened in the first half of the last century.

All buildings are inevitably products of their own times - to deny the existence of developments in materials would be artificial. But having said that, for design to become the slave of new technology is self-indulgent.

Remember the example of entasis discussed on another thread a while ago - if it is too difficult for the software does that represent an advance ?

Just because we have microwaves, does that make the three minute meal better ?
