Nice words and true to the extents, that then the design is not fittet for weather or pointing to the wrong technology, for me this issue get personal as I am ignorant to whatever fasion this might represent.
When describing art, you look for cirtain values like uniquenes and obvious different aproaches or a better expression. Mine these day's is anything doing sheet works, ------ then I agrea I am reasoable towerds styles and fasion, as long structure and detail is the matter, as then there will be a place for the one living there. You need a way to build your flat here or there, at the lowest cost as nice as possible. This is what grow a city when best, is progress ,new jobs and new technology. What is acturly wrong, being able to buy a small corner, of a WTC build around, with rights when somone build ontop providing a third your investment back at your face ?
Maby in 20 years, the WTC still standing, would have to be dismantled and somthing pointing to the bright future build, somthing alloving you to buy a corner at the edges of the structure , Isn't this what it is about, providing the means for a bright future, then why deal with Architecture, when even Arts driven to a social skill.
"99" pct. of the proposals I seen ,still I have not been hounting the proposals ,---- but 99 pct. or more, been very focused on actural buildings. Some build arounds that I se as seperate design idears, provide lot more arear, much lower down ,then what's wrong about safety ,when the structure can help your means providing ports between different arears of this 3D structure providing a town .
Now I couldn't find a standard Pyramide, to place ups. down carved within the building structure ( assembly frame structure ).
Even the framework for the one in the graphics is not even generated and with this structure what you se at the graphics will make more sense , -------- if this was about buisness, then why spend the money with new pyramides, when investment is not what it is about, why buy a "new" pyramide, when the trouble is, that pyramides don't work particular good except as pyramides ; a useless structure in architecture, but I could not find a standard pyramide solid w. 4 faces, only a corner from a box doing only 3 sides to a pyramide, so The upside down pyramide is not there, this you must emagine.
But it would be in a cheap ,flexible and easy building method, forming somthing 4 times as strong. Then you Romans get the Pyramide you asked ;))
