Per,

Have you ever met an architect? Do you know at all what they do?

You say,

"you don't even want the tool that could transform the world of buildings."

Who is "you" (of course someone wants it) and what happened to the idea that a genius creating designs transforms our world?

It is the era of the machines. People can be bound by them, but it isn't necessary. Can't humans envision without them?

Also if you have an answer to rid us of spreadsheets, specifications, codes, engineering, facts and figures that seem necessary to create viable buildings, carry on. I suppose the fabric knows all, and you just plug in--forget the spreadsheets!

Regardless, those wooden boats are wonderful and truly artful.

And one point you did make offhand is very good: Get some construction experience and build something firsthand before you try to become an architect. A lot of people do.

Peter
