I don't understand how that 'architecture' changes alot. That picture is an image of a heavily over structured building. But that is all, an image. What is this honeycomb made of? How does it change/move?

Much like the french architect Francois Roche, plenty of images but no explanation of how it works.

To reply to the earlier question about what will people want in the future, that IS architecture. Architecture is the art of prediction. Predicting a future that doesn't yet exist. But we can only develop things for that future by actually building them and exploring physical structures, not creating endless computer images of 'things that might be quite nice' with no understanding of how they might be constructed.
