Another occasion to reminder the joke the mechanical engineer sent to me: The difference between mechanical engineers and structural engineers is that mechanical engineers make weapons, and structural engineers make targets.

The realization of the mobile architecture, i.e., houses that fly wiould mean an entire demise of the static architecture were not because as in Carrollian thinking

There's no hurry in going to nowhere.

Of course if our houses may visit another planets or virgin areas (not full of tourism) such unbuilt environments will be compatible with our ways of then.

However, it is likely that the mere need of some economy, or natural preferences for environments, or even merely our need of identification with some particular place, or reunion, will make that Destiny places still will be being built in such advanced future.

Then architects will be building places to live as now do, places to be called home, target places where to go, places with which to become identified as the places we live.

Destiny places ... we are buiding today. Every time we devise an organizational scheme, some circulation ... people is living by our drawn order. We chose to serve them in this way.
