The exposition of the new proposals by these (some at least) leaders of our profession made of the date a great day for most architects in the planet: they verified with their own eyes they can do as well as such leading teams and some with more inspiration.

This is just the harbinger of what CAD tools can do not only for architects, but for the people, natural user of architecture. The democratization of design tools and publication are also exposing in its direst cruelty the banality on which the construction of the fames in our profession is being constructed.

Even "mere" beauty can't escape to the recognition of even minimally trained eyes.

The result is also a welcome awakening to the reality of that even big money is not being able to buy talent if it is not wanting to search for it. They surely are as baffled as the spectators: we are offering (quite unsecurely, it seems, or so it looks) one of the best opportunities ever for an architect, and we are getting this!

Well, so then they will have to think what they are doing badly that they are getting this dismal creativity.

And yes, you can build any of these things even very dearly to a perfection of some kind of numbness.
