In Reply to: Is Architectural Plagiarism Okay? posted by Clinton Gallagher on February 09, 2003 at 10:06:17:
Now plagiatism is difficult to avoid esp. as most architectural trends was re-invented 3 times past century, fact is that if you need "inspiration" you just need to check what was build in sovjet before round 1932 and you start vorry about why architecture will not adabt new technologies as it seem these was what feeded the creativity.
What do you expect with a riverwalk, --- that you must _not_ build a pavilion as then this is plagism. Now with the scanned graphics there are quite a chance it is, but what else could be made, and if you realy want to talk about plagism, then quite a lot of our architectural icons allready look quite a lot , like somthing done before.
Sorry my ignorance, but as long as architects will not go further into new technikes and form languages, they are bound to build ontop the existing city with what allready been develobed 3 times past century. Nothing new except the computers, and the computers is just filled with code describing how things allway's was done, then how can you avoid plagism when the tools and materials are the same and the russians allready made factories that would be exiting icons of today's architecture.
