When designing a building today, you build with blocks, the result are nice houses but as you can't hand carve a building structure, you are left with the technikes develobed thru most of the century.
These technikes make it easyer to build from the Lego idear or from the enginering the structure and combining this with blocks ,blocks that "live their own life" even independant of other building compoments , making the structure un nessery heavy, and complicatet according to assembly details that need to be added to ensure structural intergrity ,while today a building ask for nummorus of different extruded beams, hundreds of different types of fittings to "glue" independant building compoments together , to make it make sense.
Nothing wrong with that, we all understand how this work, acturly about architecture and It, we understand the complicated Lego filosofy, but fail to se the simplicity in new methods like my loved 3D-Honeycomb.
Still how is it possible to develob without a hands-on attitude ; wasn't a lot of the "organic" architecture from the early past century acturly ahead it's time also in the sense ,that the computer was not yet there. Wouldn't a few of Le.corb's nice buildings be quite a lot cheaper in an assembly framework, and wouldn't our Lego fasion have develobed a bit different, if architects at that time would have known, that you can intergrate structure for walls, with those for supporting floors to make them reach way within the building , ------- Tradisionally are today Lego thinking, building with blocks and doing this, as this is how paperwork progress slow.
That it is more important to project than to develob and that having a method we know "work" , make it very difficult for new methods is also somthing "tradisional".
How can architecture develob with a new form language if you are in fact not allowed to use the potential of the computers and the full potential of modern manufactoring technikes.
