As for cloning existing styles and trends yes, but this don't mean that you scrap a flexible tool ; when I develobed the 3D morphing rutines I used in my boat designs, the results was very exiting ; acturly when I in one end had a design from year1900 and in the other end a typic design round 1950 , the interpolations acturly covered the change of style during this period, ---- or rather I could find examples during this periode that was _exactly_ what was "predicted" with the software.
Now you can not scrap a tool just becaurse somone could use it silli, beside cloning is not the right term when you interpolate.
Now about the discussion about these two architects, I am quite sure, that both, with the technology avaible today, would have had the true tools both in some sense was "looking for" with their designs. Hands-on experience is maby not possible with today's Lego type applications, but this do not mean, that some of the more modern methods is as bad as the 2D oriented applications where you se everything only from top,front and side.
Still when architecture need tools to link projecting directly to production, maby architecture shuld aswell look into what new technologies and modern manufactoring offer ; I know atleast two architects that did profit from this aproach.
