Thanks for the comments. In this article, we have not focused on the
specific issues of CADCAM. Rather, our intent is to give an overview of the emerging trends for technology in related fields, such as "visualization", which have are now being used for CFD analysis in architecture, etc. I feel these phenomena will be increasingly utilized for building performance and building science studies.
As to the expense issue, the reference to Gehry and Associates work is not intented to infer that this is the ideal utilization of technology transfer. However, it has been included as this work represents a significant contribution to the evolution of technology transfer in architecture.
The profession of architecture is currently faced with the question of
mission and goals. From your comments, I infer that you are interested in efficiency and affordability. These are meritious goals,
within this context, architects are now forced to ask themselves "what" we want the technology to help us do. Maybe "originality" ( and thus often, complexity of form) is hindering our pursuit of higher
causes for technoloy.
