Houses, cars are somewhat antropomorphic, mouth, eyes and so on. The study of other organic shapes as appearance for buildings may be much interesting, and in fact in this era when our ability to design to measure more strange shapes is enhanced by CAD support must result in very -if not interesting- striking set of architectures soon.

Even teenagers can do better with colours and details than most buildings end having "on". Buildings continue being something that is not a pleasure to see most times. And don't think beauty is not functional, is maybe lack of functionality and expanded intent, and excessive conformity to previous experience what makes them many times ugly. Were not for that the works of one Gaudí wouldn't continue being seen sso striking and daring.

But this is not surprising... powers want an ordenancist world, and ordenancist arhitectures are prevalent.
