Increasingly, computers and the relevant software are being used in the process of architectural design. Whilst this has apparent benefits in terms of realising initial design ideas - think Gehry and Bilbao, it is also becoming a generative tool. Does anybody else see this as a worrying development? could this result in an architecture that is not merely detached from reality, but completely seperate from reality - existing soley in virtual reality? a return to an architecure deficient in terms of site specification.
