Hi
When was that building projected ----- was it 1977 , that's 25 years ago. So what happened during these 25 years in terms of getting out of this dead end. You shuld not ask me, if High-tech shuld be only fake Decor with brick building at the bottom.
True an architect proberly have a very different aproach than a craftman, you se here in this contry we also say "this king build this", even we know that the king didn't build anything, what I claim is, that you better not be so holy, that you forget that the architect of 1977 "build" with the means avaible, ----- and in terms of high-tech those means did _not_ prove very good, or maby you want to point to other fake tophat with brickworks doing the service as the true buildings , and the fake High-tech ad Decor making noise in the wind.
It was not Gethry's foult that the digital tools was so poor back 77, but fact is that they did not get copied ; why do you think that is ?
I tell you ; becaurse wire meshes for decades been known for nothing but trouble, easy to project on a screen and needing an army of craftmen to fiddle in place ; was this the new fancy advanced ,anyway it seemed it only brought zero thickness mesh entities that can't even hold the floors.
BTW do you know the term computer simulation, what it is and stand for.
