But then remember that a lot of what is there allready are rather a Lego-world or rest on Lego thinking, ----- based on the Pyramide idear produced in the arts-world that is rather a Pyramide upside down where the single artist now at the bottom that was before the top ,hold the intire Pyramide of artgalleries , artschools, publishers , critics, museums, arts dealers , whatever in the air.
Then when Disney build high-tech tophats based on 20 year old technologies with no structure but only surface carried by a tradisional structure ----- sure we need some _true_ Digital tools to bring a new form language allowing for the Detail ,now modernism turned into fake brickwork to cover ugly concrete fiddlework like thin metal sheets need frames with the weight of tonns ,when the wall is angled so it's about to crush itself by it's own weight.

Now I love the forms and the visions, but please understand that when somone try to sell the emporers clotches this is a social game as much of the arts world allready ; still if he don't wear any clotches and the smart buisnessman can't point to a true direct link to production, don't expect this Disneyland to be nothing but your own expertations ------- Check a building method that _bring_ a new form language, is _not surface only with no structure, and build anything at a third, four times as strong.
Nothing wrong with fancy forms but please se, that 20 year old technologies can not be relevant ------ or did nothing happen in these 20 years ?
What are the role of an artist today ; to be socialising doing nothing creative or being critics showing a true alternative.
