Offcaurse there were little to project compared to emtying buckets but this don't mean that casting concrete blocks shuld be any better today, even geometrics are nice, triangles are sqare compared the volume of lighter structures. Stone blocks work more effective with Roman bridgebuilding and if Romans needed pyramides they proberly would have build these, but they needed bridges . From my point of view it shuld be obvious, that we never will se icons with same abilities to aging ,guess this is very different from "organic" thinking, but then any geometric shape are organic from that kind of view. The arts of Escher and the cosyness of Jugend would never be the trend this year anyway, but there are patterns within the architectural debate that is true, and technology never stood stronger, etics work perfect and there are the chance of a milinium. Even this is not achived, the debate will continiue in another direction and technology will develob , as it did going from stone to bronce , nave you ever knocked on stone with bronce ;))
Our written memmory only cover what these kings achived more important even building thes pyramides ,maby that shuld be obvious to se, or people at those times didn't even think in these lines, what shuld be interesting building such one compared owning it making you a tomb, are for many people grown up modern times somthing with no value , who care about the individual when it's not there anymore.
The cold side of modernism. No wonder if people start looking for detail ;))
