hi all. Do u all frequent this thin line between the 2 domains in ur profession? what experiences are most vivid and most memorable to ur profession til now? Has surrealism surpassed realism within the context of architectural representation thru computer graphics n animation to the point that customers do not knoe the differences and the true nature of archi-tectonics or architectural thought?

Architecture has poised itself towards the playstation era...renderings and fly throughs have become 2nd nature to architects. But does this cloud our thoughts and intentions , our concepts and innermost feelings about our works or other's works? MAny have endeavoured into such fields, only to have computer architecture stored in their pcs, never to be built or realised. Is such time and effort to imagine and explore relevant to our society where pragmatism and cost-benefits are existent?

Are we to continue to thread the playstation path and just break boundaries into the star wars era? Are we ready for such a launch?
please comment. thanks.
